The Transparency of Intrinsic Safety Isolator Technology
KCD2-RR-EX1 thermometer resistance repeater
The new KCD2-RR-EX1 thermometer resistance repeater
To avoid ground loops and limit the energy of intrinsically safe circuits, isolated signal repeater barriers are recommended. Signal repeaters transmit sensor signals from the input side of the isolator to the output side. Signal repeaters are of particular use if several channels need to be galvanically isolated. Signal repeaters are available for a variety of signal types, such as millivolt from thermocouples, or resistance values from temperature probes.
The KCD2-RR-EX1 has a narrow 12.5 mm housing and also offers additional features, such as line fault detection, and LED for power indication. Its fast transfer rate makes it ideal for multiplexed multichannel cards.
