Electro-Pneumatic Transducer is approved for natural gas.

Press Release Summary:

Featuring explosion-proof, NEMA 4X/IP66 housing, Type i2P-100 converts mA input signals to switch selectable proportional pneumatic output signal. Dual compartments have explosive fluid seal between explosive/corrosive process fluid and electronics. Integral pneumatic relay provides capacity necessary to drive pneumatic control valve/actuator assemblies without additional volume boosters or positioners. Selectable dipswitch can be set for output range of 3-15 or 6-30 psi.

Emerson Introduces Electro-Pneumatic Transducer with High Output Capacity and Rangeability

The Fisher Type i2P-100 transducer is approved for natural gas as the pneumatic supply

MARSHALLTOWN, IA. (January 26, 2005) -- Emerson Process Management introduces the Fisher Type i2P-100 electro-pneumatic transducer that can convert various milliamp input signals to a switch selectable proportional pneumatic output signal for lower pneumatic supply consumption. The transducer is approved for use with Natural Gas because of its unique design of dual compartments that have a third-party approved "explosive fluid seal" between the explosive/corrosive process fluid and the module electronics.

High Output Capacity and Rangeability -- An integral pneumatic relay provides the high capacity necessary to drive pneumatic control valve/actuator assemblies without additional volume boosters or positioners. A selectable dip switch can be set for a standard output range of 3- 15 or 6- 30 psi, and the selectable two-way split range uses either half of the standard input signal.

Tough, Reliable and Easy to Service -- Coating the patented plug-in converter module and encapsulating the plug-in electronics in the transmitter provide protection and reliability in hostile environments. The explosion proof rated housing is designed to meet NEMA 4X, IP66 requirements. This Fisher transducer is a free-flow pilot stage design with large internal air passages that provide excellent tolerance to a dirty pneumatic supply by reducing the effects of contaminant buildup and erosion. The external removable primary orifice and replaceable 5 micron filter are easy to remove for service and maintenance. Electronic and converter modules are contained in separate housing compartments, isolating the electronics from the process and allowing for easy replacement in the field for reduced maintenance costs.

Vibration Resistance - The plug-in converter module uses small parts of minimum mass, which are balanced symmetrically around a pivot point at the center of the mass. This balanced arrangement, when used in a standard valve/actuator mounted application, results in a high performance instrument that reduces sensitivity to vibration.
