In all aspects of the design, PR electronics has focused on the multifunctionality of the 4000 series. Therefore, the seven product variants cover hundreds of applications, resulting in reduced stock as well as increased flexibility and competitiveness. Having one variant that applies to a broad range of signal conditioning applications greatly simplifies the need for spare parts. In addition, it provides great flexibility in relation to device usage.
The PR electronics 4000 series of multifunctional transmitters offer versatile devices for isolation, conversion, scaling, amplification, alarming, control and more. They are used in a wide range of industries such as chemical industry, energy industry, water supply and wastewater, factory automation, cement, etc.
The 4184 Universal uni-/bipolar converter is the ideal addition to PR’s multifunctional 4000 series, as it is the world most versatile converter that can be operated by a detachable display for easy configuration and diagnostic. The module interfaces analog active signals or powers 2/3-wire transmitters from more or less any field-device, such as pressure, flow and level transmitters, as well as, torque, position, current and acceleration sensors. This makes it the perfect interface for connecting devices like PLC, DCS, chart recorders and more.
This is particularly useful, where customers are looking for a product to become site standard, where it is essential to secure a high-accuracy signal, eliminate noise issues, and provide a strong galvanic isolation protection. The module provides uni-/bipolar current and voltage output, or a passive 2-wire mA output. It has a fast < 20 ms response time and excellent 0.05% accuracy. It has configurable input limits controlling the output for increased safety and meets the demand from both NAMUR NE21 and NAMUR NE43.
The handling of the module is safe, as changes can only be made in combination with an interface module. The 4501 Display/programming front and the 4511 Communication enabler allow access to your process data. The PR 4501, a local operator interface, provides connectivity on all devices of the 4000 series to locally monitor process values, device configuration and perform signal simulation. The PR 4511 offers the same, as well as easy remote access to process values of all devices of the 4000 series.
