ProSense Frequency Signal Conditioners

AutomationDirect has added frequency signal conditioners from ProSense. These new signal conditioners are extremely versatile, affordable, and provide the flexibility to convert, transmit, scale, and isolate input signals from a wide variety of process sensors and controller I/O. The SCU-2200 universal analog-to-frequency converters accept milliamp, voltage, RTD, thermocouple, or potentiometer inputs and provide a scalable single-frequency output (up to 25kHz). They are helpful when a controller does not have any analog input points available but does have a frequency input. The SCU-2500 series frequency (input) conditioners are useful for converting frequency signals from encoders, magnetic pick-ups, variable speed drives, and flow meters to an analog signal for a PLC, recorder, or digital display. They accept frequency signals up to 100kHz and provide unipolar or bipolar analog, relay, or frequency (up to 100kHz) outputs.

Liquids Process Analyzer

The KECO Model 205 PermaStream H2S in Liquids Process Analyzer offers an accurate quantification of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) in sample streams of crude oil as part of environmental compliance, safety, and quality control practices. The inline analyzer measures H2S in light/medium/heavy crude oil, dirty/clean water, diesel, fuel oil and drilling fluid in real time. By providing accurate and continuous monitoring of H2S levels in liquid streams, the analyzer helps companies demonstrate compliance with air permits promoting the reduction of environmental impacts. Naturally found in crude oil, H2S can pose a threat when inhaled due to its toxicity.

IFC 400 Electromagnetic Flow Converter

The IFC 400 helps detect external influences such as excessive vibration, temperature extremes, and magnetic field effects, and also detects process influences like chemicals and excessive sedimentation in the liquid. To detect these influences, the IFC 400 has a self-diagnostic function covering three aspects: process conditions, device functioning, and out-of-spec testing. The process measurement check detects leakages, contamination, liner deformation, and air entrainment in the process liquid. The device function self-check continuously monitors electronics and sensor hardware.
