Ametek Receives FM Certification For Series 90A Annunciator
Highly Versatile Annunciator Has Users Re-Thinking Alarm Management Strategy
ROCHESTER, NY, U.S.A.-AMETEK Power Instruments-a recognized leader in process control room instrumentation-has received FM Certification for its Series 90A annunciator that was initially introduced in 2004. The highly versatile annunciator can now be used in hazardous locations with new features not currently available to these users. The 90A provides reliable worry-free operation, making it the perfect choice for the petroleum, petrochemical and other process industries.
The Series 90A performs many new functions, consolidating the amount of control room equipment previously required. In addition to standard visual alarm display functions, the 90A timestamps alarms to determine the sequence of events, identifying the order in which alarms occur to establish the cause of a failure.
The 90A also reduces installation costs by connecting alarms to other equipment with the Modbus and DNP communications using either serial or Ethernet interfaces. Adding to its versatility, the 90A is easily configured through a software tool that places access to all features and functions a mouse click away. The system is completely upgradeable, and system capacity can be expanded if needed.
Using super bright long life LED's for visual indication of all alarms, the 90A is practically maintenance free. The system performs many self diagnostics such as Serial/Ethernet communication status, lamp failure detect, ground fault detection in external wiring and overall system status.
The 90A is backed by AMETEK's more than 50 years of experience in process control room annunciators and displays. AMETEK has long been recognized as the power and process industry leader with the most comprehensive line of annunciators, event monitors, and graphic displays.
