The universal SensoTrans R P 32300 resistance transmitters provide connection possibilities for all standard potentiometers for angle, path or position detection up to 50 kohms. They can be flexibly adapted to the respective measuring task using DIP and rotary encoder switches or via an IrDA® port.
3-port isolation with protective separation up to 300 V AC/DC according to EN 61140 ensures optimal protection of personnel and equipment as well as unaltered transmission of the measurement signals.
The SensoTrans R P 32300 offer maximum performance in the smallest of spaces. Adjusting the start and end value to the individual position sensor is particularly convenient via the infrared interface, for example using a PDA. Sensors with known characteristics can be very easily calibrated using 4 rotary encoder switches and 8 DIP switches.
Special measuring tasks can be solved with SensoTrans devices that Knick configures according to individual specifications. Fixed-range devices without switches are used, for example, when manipulations or mix-ups must be precluded.
Knick offers the SensoTrans R P 32300 transmitter with SIL approval for applications with high demands on functional safety. The requirements of EN 61508 were implemented through specially developed hardware and software. The implemented fail-safe concept makes use of structural measures at the device level (redundancy of system components) and diagnostic methods for selective fault detection. The product is SIL 2 approved (EN 61508) by an authorized body (TÜV Rheinland). SIL 3 in redundant implementations.
