MODBUS Card suitable for Gas Measuring Systems and transmitters with 4-20mA output in aluminium housing with cabling glands
Part no: 2112B1055
The MODBUS card converts 4-20mA signals from our Gas Measuring Systems and transmitters into digital output.
The central evaluation and processing of measuring signals using a bus system and a central computer is advisable whenever a complex system has to be controlled, such as a system with many remote measuring points within buildings and underground car parks.
When determining gas and vapour concentrations in ambient air, a typical signal of 4-20 mA is used with a gas detection system. Although it is possible to connect to a digital data communication system, this is expensive.
The MODBUS card changes 4-20 mA signals into digital signals and transfers this signal via a serial RS485 interface to a central computer, which can be located up to 1,000 metres away. The MODBUS card makes use of reliable MODBUS RTU protocol.
The MODBUS card is suitable for a maximum of four 4-20 mA input signals and transfers the data, on request, to the central computer. The digital signal contains the following information:
– Coding of the MODBUS card
– Coding of the channel
– Gas to be measured
– Gas concentration
