Weidmuller adds More Analog Signal Conditioners to Further Expand the WAVESERIES Line of Electronic Interface Products
CHICAGO (March 18, 2002) - For an even more comprehensive offering of its WAVESERIES line of electronic interface products, Weidmuller is adding more analog functions for signal isolation, conversion, and monitoring.
All of the newest additions have three-port isolation. These signal conditioners output standardized signals: 0...20 mA, 4...20 mA and 0...10 V. The modules are offered with either screw-type or tension-clamp connections, ensuring maximum wiring
flexibility across a broad spectrum of industrial automation applications.
WAVEANALOG DC/DC signal conditioner products are available in housing widths of 12.5 mm and 17.5 mm. Compared to conventional housings, WAVESERIES modules require less installation time-the circuit board, equipped with all of the necessary components for operation and connection, is simply plugged into the header.
The circuit board and header are then inserted into the rail-mounted enclosure housing as a single unit, locking into place. Assembly and disassembly can be performed without tools, a major advantage for repair and maintenance personnel.
The WAVEANALOG also offers plug-in cross-connection capability.
WAVEANALOG DC/DC signal conditioners that are arranged side-by-side can have power and ground connections jumpered to adjacent modules-reducing the number of wiring connections and adding even greater flexibility in solving application needs.
WAVESERIES components are constructed of polycarbonate and PC
thermoplastics, with UL94 flammability rating of V2. Polyamide insulating material offers outstanding electrical, mechanical, chemical, and other properties at high operating temperatures.
List prices for the WAVEANALOG DC/DC signal conditioners start at $100.00.
