Red Lion IAMS Signal Conditioners Support Universal Input, Facilitate Programming Via Detachable Display



YORK, PA-December 15, 2008-Red Lion Controls, Inc. introduces the IAMS series of universal signal conditioners. These DIN rail mounted signal conditioners provide complete isolation and conversion capability to satisfy almost any application. The universal input can accept RTD, TC, Ohm, potentiometer, mA, VDC and process input signals, allowing the units to be connected to most common sensors. They also feature a detachable LCD display/programming module, providing simple push-button programming without the need for difficult-to-use DIP switches or PC tethering.

The signal conditioners feature well over 100 possible input-to-output combinations and are available in three models. The setpoint model allows dual setpoint control capability through dual Form A relays. The analog model provides a retransmitted analog signal. A third model provides both an analog output and relay control capability.

The detachable LCD module can store programming from one unit and load it to a second unit, reducing set-up time for multiple installations. When the programming module is not being used for programming, it can remain attached to a module and indicate the input parameters, just like a panel meter.

"Companies today are trying to reduce the amount of stagnate inventory they have to keep on hand, for just-in-case scenarios," said Jeff Thornton, Product Manager at Red Lion. "The IAMS universal signal conditioner makes this a reality by providing the flexibility and capability to replace up to five or six signal-specific modules with a single model." Thornton adds, "The push-button detachable display allows the signal conditioner to be simply set up and can be used to program multiple units in the same way, greatly reducing configuration time."

The IAMS series universal signal conditioners provide removable terminal strips for simple set up in a wide range of applications. Plus, the flexible signal conditioners feature a universal power supply that accepts 21.6 to 253 VAC or 19.2 to 300 VDC. The detachable programming display additionally offers guided configuration in 7 on-board languages.

Applications: Red Lion's IAMS series universal signal conditioners accept a variety of input signals, including:

RTD
