NEW DUAL CHANNEL SIGNAL CONDITIONER FROM STATUS
3 February 2015
Status Instruments has launched the SEM 1720, a dual channel signal conditioner for temperature sensors designed to accept RTD, Thermocouple or Potentiometer sensors and provide isolated, industrial process output signals in mA or Volts.
Each output channel on the new product may be linked to either input sensor to send the sensor signal to two different pieces of equipment or to a maths function of both sensor signals. This powerful feature allows the device to operate in a number of different modes such as sensor a-b, average and redundancy where if one sensor fails, the product switches to the other automatically.
The output signal can also be adjusted over the full working ranges (0 to 20) mA or (0 to10) V, to provide common or custom process signals, examples (4 to 20) mA, (0 to 1) mA,(1 to 5) V.
SEM1720 is configured using Status’ free USB SpeedLink software that allows the user to configure the device without requiring calibration equipment. Maths functions on each channel can be set up using the software as well as a 22 segment profile tool. Input/output simulation tools for diagnostic purposes are also available.
The SEM 1720 device offers the user eight preset ranges selected by removing the front panel and setting a three position switch. This allows the user to store configurations in the device rather than programme it on site.
