Choosing a 4-20mA Isolator

Although a virtually straightforward task, selecting an Isolator—specifically a 4-20mA Isolator— involves more than simply comparing the number of channels and the cost per point. Signal isolators receive 4-20mA process current inputs and provide an isolated 4-20mA output signal. On multi-channel units, each channel operates independently and is isolated from the others to prevent interaction between channels. Galvanic isolation eliminates ground loops, reduces, noise, and blocks transient signals.

As a trusted Acromag distributor, we have outlined a few concepts to help you specify a 4-20mA Isolator:

  • A two-wire system using output loop powered devices is a low cost approach. The I/O modules in this system use power from the output loop to operate and control the 4-10mA loop to the load. This is characterized as a sinking output because the module requires an external power source.
  • Without a power source, a 4-10mA Isolator that powers the output loop is required. This type of Isolator is characterized as having a sourcing output. If the I/O module can take power from the input loop to operate and power the 4-10mA output loop to the load, a two-wire system using input loop powered devices is a low-cost approach. Otherwise, a four-wire device must be used.
  • To determine if the I/O modules are correctly matched to an application, the voltage level to the external power source must be determined, along with the total input impedance of all loads, and whether other peripheral devices are connected to the input loops.

If you could use some help deciding which 4-20mA isolator is right for you, contact us. We offer more than 100 modules that interface with a vast array of voltage, current, and strain measuring devices, and they are designed to integrate seamlessly into your existing process.

UPA-130: A Superior Three Phase Voltage Indicator

Keeping personnel protected against live voltage is a fundamental and crucial electrical safety measure. Answering the important question, “is there voltage present?” is simple and effective using a quality voltage indicator engineered by experts you can trust. Kodiak Controls provides industry-leading automation and control products, and we are proud to present the latest three-phase voltage indicator: UPA-130 Voltage Alert by ATC Diversified Electronics.

The UPA-130 Voltage Alert reduces the risk of electrical arc flash by pre-verifying the electrical isolation from outside of an electrical panel. Presence of hazardous conditions associated with stored energy is indicated by an LED flash or illuminate. The Voltage Alert is powered by the same voltage it indicates and is available in three configurations depending on your needs. Simply install through a 30 mm panel knockout and you’re good to go!

Specifications include:

  • Function: Indicator
  • Number of Digits: 3
  • Supply Voltage: 30-100, 40-750, VAC, VDC
  • Temperature Operating Range: -20 to +55 °C

Features of ATC Diversified Electronics UPA-130

It’s important to ensure your personnel are protected from devastating electrocution incidents while complying with necessary OSHA 1910 Subpart S and OSHA 1926 Pubpart K regulations. As this standard continues to evolve, it’s necessary to stay updated with the latest equipment in order to determine the likelihood of arc flash. The UPA-130 Voltage Alert provides you with the proper protection.

Features include:

  • Enhances NFPA 70E and OSHA Compliance
  • Detects Stored AC and DC Voltages
  • Redundant Circuitry
  • Verifies Electrically Safe Conditions

The Importance of Efficient Industrial Control Solutions

To streamline your company’s manufacturing processes, efficient industrial control solutions are an essential component regardless of the industry. Whether your company specializes in water treatment and ground remediation, environmental applications, printing and packaging, petro-chemical, food and beverage, or machine tool, die casting, and extrusion, efficient industrial controls can increase safety, save time, and improve performance.

When selecting products that will take your manufacturing processes to the next level, we recommend looking for these key features:

 

Safety for Your Employees—and Your Company

Regulating the temperature of manufacturing process is essential for the safety of employees, equipment, and materials—and the overall success of your company. Since even the smallest temperature fluctuations can cause differences in the end results, temperature and process controllers such as Kodiak’s resistance temperature detectors, reduce the need for operator involvement while handling applications of any size with ease.

 

Time-Saving Tools

To ensure large systems and complex processes operate seamlessly, a centralized measurement and control system is a vital tool for manufacturers. However, assembling data into a single location can be time-consuming and logistically challenging. For efficient I/O distribution, our modules are multi-functional to save time and space while increasing productivity.

 

High-Performing Interactive Displays

Interactive displays for industrial controls and instrumentation are the ideal interface for improving efficiency in manufacturing processes. From mounted displays to rugged, durable hand-held process controllers for tasks in the field, interactive displays ensure the best possible performance.
