Description :

This signal conditioner is a four-channel analog input module with four discrete outputs. It filters and linearizes thermocouple inputs while providing isolation between input, output, power, and network circuits. Cold junction compensation and upscale/downscale sensor break detection are standard. AC and DC power sources are supported with nonpolarized, diode-coupled terminals.

The programmable inputs accommodate eight thermocouple types plus wide-range millivolt signals. Flexible discrete outputs operate as alarms or on/off controllers. As limit alarms, each discrete output can be configured with high and/or low setpoints exclusively tied to an analog input channel. Alarm trips function without host communication enabling low-cost stand-alone alarms as well as local backup for the primary control system. Otherwise, on/off control is based on commands issued by the host system.

Combining flexible transmitter functions, mixed signal I/O, alarm support, and a network interface in a single package, makes this instrument extremely powerful. Multi-channel design adds cost-efficiency and allows high-density mounting. Plus, safe, rugged construction makes these modules reliable for use in both control room and distributed field I/O applications. Custom module configurations are also possible.

    Features

  • Standard Modbus RTU protocol with high-speed RS-485 communication (up to 115K bps)
  • 16-bit sigma-delta A/D yields 0.1°C resolution and 0.5°C measurement accuracy
  • Thermocouple linearization and sensor break detection ensure reliable measurements
  • Four discrete outputs enable local temperature limit alarms or host-controlled on/off switching
  • Heavy-duty 1A solid-state relays provide dependable on/off control of industrial devices
  • Self-calibration lowers maintenance costs by reducing periodic manual calibration checks
  • Watchdog timers provide a configurable failsafe output state for use when host I/O communication is lost
  • Four-way isolation eliminates potential ground loops between power, input, output and network circuitry
  • Self-diagnostics monitor microcontroller activity to detect operational failures (lock-up) and execute a reset to restore communication
