Press Release Summary:
Compact DIN-rail mount HIM Smart HART Loop Interface and Monitor obtains up to 3 additional analog process measurements from smart HART multivariable mass flow, level, pressure and pH transmitters. Using HART digital data that rides on 4-20 mA current loop, module breaks out signals representing any combination of transmitter's primary, second, third, or fourth measurement variables. Dual alarm trip outputs can be set for high/low conditions.
Original Press Release:
HART Loop Interface Module Unlocks the Full Potential of New and In-Place "Legacy" Smart HART Transmitters
NORTH HILLS, CA-With no additional process penetrations or wiring, Moore Industries' new HIM Smart HART Loop Interface and Monitor allows up to three additional analog process measurements from smart HART multivariable mass flow, level, pressure and pH transmitters. For a multivariable mass flow transmitter, this may include pressure, differential pressure, process temperature, flow rate, flow total and sensor temperature.
Using the HART digital data that "rides" on the 4-20mA current loop, the HIM "breaks out" up to three 4-20mA signals representing any combination of a smart multivariable transmitter's primary, second, third, or fourth measurement variables so they can be used by analog control systems, such as a DCS or PLC.
Dual alarm trip outputs can be individually configured to warn of high/low process conditions. They can also be set to alert the user if the monitored device and/or the HART monitor itself is in a fault condition. This includes use of the HART protocol's status bits to indicate a smart transmitter cold start; field device malfunction; or that the primary variable analog output is fixed, saturated, or out of limits.
The HART Interface and Monitor sets up quickly and easily using Moore Industries' single window configuration software equipped with HelpMap, a comprehensive, searchable web-based help system that smoothly guides the user from hook-up to start-up.
The compact, DIN-rail mount module installs on a rail in the control room, or in rugged field conditions in the company's metal R-BOX field-mount enclosure.
