Minneapolis, Minn.‚â€”TURCK introduces the new IMS interface module that provides a cost-effective solution for analog signal conversion. The IMS interface module measures 6.2 mm wide, featuring one of the smallest profiles on the market today.
Modules are also available specifically for transferring temperature signals from thermocouple, RTD and other devices using Pt-100 technology, achieving 0.3 percent of the full scale and available with 2, 3 or 4 wire connections. This simple conversion to current signals makes the IMS module an inexpensive addition to new or retrofit applications, allowing users to employ standard current analog cards rather than costly thermocouple or RTD cards. Plus, IMS modules are simple to configure using a laterally mounted DIP switch.
Along with signal conversion, this module conditions and isolates signals from external sources, making it a particularly effective solution for wastewater and other industries where electrical noise is commonplace. The IMS module provides complete galvanic isolation and up to 2.5 kV for the input, output and power supply, and it offers signal conditioning that acts as a dead-zero to live-zero signal. One- and two-channel modules without signal conditioning are also available.
