Set-point generators

Digital raise - lower set-point (time controlled output)

Digital Raise - Lower units provide a time controlled ramped mA or voltage output which is controlled by Raise (up) and Lower (down) signals. The output rises whilst the 'Raise' input signal is present. Similarly the output falls whilst the 'Lower' input signal isactive. In the absence of active 'Raise' or 'Lower' signals the output is held at the current value.

Ramp generators

Ramp Generators provide a ramped mA or Voltage output signal started and stopped by momentary 'Start' and 'Stop' signals. The 'Stop' signal halts the ramp with the output is held at the current value. Four ramp types are supported each of which may be set to generate a single period wave form or, using the repeat option, a continuous wave form.

High / low signal selectors

112-20A Low selector, 112-21A High selector

These instruments will provide an output which is equal to, or proportional to, the highest (112-21A) or the lowest (112-20A) of up to six input signals. The output can be converted into a signal of a different type.
Wall or DIN rail mounting.

Analogue comparator

112-22A Comparator

Compares two input signals and provides a relay output which changes state when the signals differ by an amount set by a front panel control. Two relays each provide one change-over and one normally open contact. One relay operates when input A is greater than input B, the other when input B is greater than input A. Wall or DIN rail mounting.

Status signal long distance transmission

COM-60 Status transmitter, COM-61 Status receiver

Provides a solution for long-distance transmission of a switched state, e.g. a high / low alarm, over telecom lines where a copper connection is unavailable. The Transmitter accepts either open-collector, volt-free contact or voltage change type inputs and converts off/on states into 400Hz/2000Hz tones for transmission. The Receiver converts the transmitted tones into a relay output (SPCO).
Wall or DIN rail mounting.

Analogue signal long distance transmission

COM-70 Analogue transmitter, COM-71 Analogue receiver

The Transmitter converts the analogue input into 400-2000Hz sinewave signal. The Receiver converts the transmitted tones into a 4-20mA signal. Wall or DIN rail mounting.
