Wireless relay enables 16 inputs from T24 devices
Offering dual power relays capable of mains switching, Mantracourt's updated T24-RM1 wireless relay module allows 16 inputs from T24 wireless instrumentation devices. The module can also sum up to two groups of eight acquisition modules and provides new relay operation modes.
Developed in response to feedback from our customers, the T24-RM1 is suited to weighing applications where an alarm action is required in response to a set condition in a complex multi-sensor environment. The telemetry range of the relays is a flexible low power radio system designed to enable the transmission of high accuracy measurement data from load cells, inclinometers, accelerometers, temperature, displacement and pressure sensors. With a combination of transmitter and receiver technologies, engineers are able to remotely monitor instrumentation readings.
The relays can be latched and a digital input or external command can be used to reset them; also, an alarm / error signal relay is operated if communication is lost or other selectable errors occur. The state of the power relays during an error can be selected, with the alarm reseting once the source of the alarm or error is removed. Supplied in an IP65 sealed ABS case, a DIN rail option is also available.
“Wireless instrumentation has opened up a vast array of new measurement and control possibilities,” commented Jonathan Purdue, Business Development Manager at Mantracourt, “especially in the field of lifting and load control. The updates to the relay module are very much due to feed-back from the marketplace, and we feel sure that these improvements will make the T24-RM1 a more complete solution when working in the field.” These relays can be configured as high, low or window alarms and can be associated with a group of up to eight acquisition modules per relay,” continued Jonathan. “The relays can then operate when the sum of the assigned acquisition modules reaches a set point or when any of the modules reach the set point. There is also a mode where the difference between the lowest and highest value is compared to the set point.”
