PRT-ADC4-DIN

DIN Rail 4 Channel Analog Input Expander

PRT-ADC4-DIN

The Protege DIN Rail 4 Channel Analog Input Expander enhances the total integration philosophy of the Protege System by allowing the connection of any industrial automation sensor using the industry standard 0 to 10V signals, and self-powered 4-20mA current loop sensors. The data from the sensors can then be used for comparison functions, process control calculations, variable display and alarm activation in the Protege system. Utilizing the most advanced hardware technology available, integrated with a 32 Bit processor and designed for use with Industry Standard DIN Rail Mounting, the Protege DIN Rail 4 Channel Analog Input Expander provides a feature rich solution for industrial control and monitoring applications.

Key Features:

Power Supply

The Protege DIN Rail 4 Channel Analog Input Expander operates from a 12VDC input. Ultra low current requirements ensuring cost effective power distribution.

Channel Configuration Features

Configuration of the Protege DIN Rail 4 Channel Analog Input Expander analog input channels allows individual channels to be set up and programmed for specific functions without compromising other channels:

  • Each channel can be independently enabled
  • Always send and send on change can be configured per channel to ensure data is sent in the most efficient manner without continual traffic
  • Data can be logged to a file which can be reviewed or exported in CSV format for graphing or input into 3rd party systems

Connectivity and System Expansion

Expanding the Protege System with 4 analog inputs from the Protege DIN Rail 4 Channel Analog Input Expander allows convenient cost effective expansion and the added benefit of:

  • Address configuration of the Protege DIN Rail 4 Channel Analog Input Expander interface is achieved using the address programming feature of the Protege System Controller

Communication

Single RS-485 communication interface port used for all network communication functions and interconnects to other modules.

Upgradable Firmware

Utilizing the latest flash technology and high performance communication mediums the firmware of the Protege DIN Rail 4 Channel Analog Input Expander can be updated using the ICT Loadit utility over the Protege system module network.
