MultiCon in distributed systems
MultiCon multichannel controllers and recorders are clearly the right choice for multi-point measurement systems. The support for simultaneous monitoring of various parameters is not limited just to physical integrated inputs. MultiCon is also capable of reading measurement signals in a Modbus network through an integrated RS-485 interface so that it can be
used in systems with considerable distances between the subsequent measurement points.
The following model works well in the application: CMC-141-PS42/ACM/UN5/UN5/UN5-0B1
Each UN5 module consists of 5 isolated universal inputs (U/I/RTD/TC/mV). Ten of the available inputs read measurements from temperature sensors whereas the other five from AO transmitters.
The ACM module is equipped with RS-485, RS-485/232, USB and Ethernet ports, providing many options for real-time communication with the device. For instance, the RS-485 interface ensures connection to the Modbus network for on-line measurements transfer, whereas the Ethernet port enables connection to a corporate network to provide a continuous remote
preview of the recorded data.
The device is designed for recording values both from 15 integrated inputs and 45 other values read from a serial communication network. It, therefore, utilizes its full potential by recording data from 60 measurement channels at the same time.
For ease of use the USB port is located on the front panel of the device.
