  • Linearized temperature measurement with RTD or TC sensor.
  • Converts analog mA signals into digital values on the bus communication.
  • Difference, average or redundancy temperature measurement with RTD or TC sensor.
  • Linear resistance, potentiometer and bipolar mV measurement.

Technical characteristics

  • Bus transmitter with both PROFIBUS PA and FOUNDATION™ Fieldbus communication. A unique switch function ensures automatic shift between the two protocols.
  • Set-up for PROFIBUS PA can be done via Siemens Simatic® PDM®, ABB Melody / Harmony and Metso DNA software and for FOUNDATION Fieldbus via Emerson DeltaV, Yokogawa CS 1000 / CS 3000, ABB Melody / Harmony and Honeywell Experion software.
  • Built-in simulation mode function.
  • Polarity-independent bus connection.
  • 24 bit A/D converter ensures high resolution.
  • PROFIBUS PA function blocks:
    2 analog.
  • FOUNDATION Fieldbus function blocks:
    2 analog and 1 PID.
  • FOUNDATION Fieldbus capability:
    Basic or LAS.

Mounting / installation

  • Mounted vertically or horizontally on a DIN rail. Using the 2-channel version up to 84 channels per meter can be mounted.
