Worldwide electrical connectivity and electronics supplier, Weidmuller, continues to lead the industry with its innovative products. The new ACT20M temperature isolation and conversion models are no exception.
The 6 new models for thermocouple and RTD temperature sensor conversion and isolation, expand Weidmuller's existing range of 6mm signal isolators and converters. They are available as thermocouple or RTD standalone units as well as combined RTD and thermocouple models. Users can also choose
between isolated and non-isolated models.
All the temperature models are available as output loop powered or 24Vdc powered units. They also feature a dip-switch selection for zero, the full scale range setting and output selection.
Apart from providing greater choice and flexibility, the new RTD and thermocouple devices are very reliable and offer a high accuracy reading to within 0.1% of the measuring range. Depending on the unit, the measuring range is from -200°C to +1370°C.
The operating temperature range is a broad -25°C to +70°C to ensure the units meet the most demanding applications. The output voltage is selectable from 0(1)…5V, 0(2)…10V and the current can be adjusted between 0(4)-20mA. The output response times are set at 30ms intervals.
For maximum convenience, the models measure only 6mm in width, and are quite small and compact. They are perfect for use in industrial, automation and mining applications.
The 6 new temperature models increase the existing ACT20M range to a choice of 16 models. Among the existing 10 models is a highly flexible 1 channel universal PC programmable input unit. It converts mV, Thermocouples, RTD's, Potentiometer, Resistance, V, and mA to a 0(1)…5V, 0(2)…10V or 0(4)-20mA output. By using the new CBX200 USB converter and free WI Manager programming software, drivers for new models and other manufacturer's FDT/DTM programmed products can be included.
The range also contains 1 channel Dip switch selectable signal isolators, 1 or 2 channel input and output loop powered units, and a 1 input, 2 output signal splitter.
Feature-packed, they deliver 2.5kV as well as 3 way isolation (between input/output/power supply). 24Vdc can be supplied via a unique Din Rail Bus that eliminates individual wiring and minimises installation time.
