Distributed control systems
• What are signal conditioners?
With the variety of process control systems available, it is often necessary to convert an input signal into a format that the system will accept. Signal conditioners take signals from an assortment of field instruments such as thermocouples and RTDs, and convert those signals into any of several standard instrument signals (1…5V, 4…20 mA, etc.).
Signal conditioners are also beneficial to the accurate transfer of these signals, for isolation and for the elimination of ground loops.
The K-System guarantees a reliable and economical signal transmission between field devices and the control system. Whether the plans include a single isolating module or a large-scale system integration, application-oriented solutions characterise the entire K-System product range. The K-System modules are DIN-rail mounted and can be powered by using the Power Rail.
The Power Rail system allows a simple snap-in of the interface modules on the DIN-Rail. The power supply and monitoring of lead errors will be transferred with reliable, gold-plated rails. Benefits include reduced wiring, fewer connections and simplified expansions in the future.
