Intelligent Signal Conditioners Simplify Temperature, Flow, Level, and Alarm Computation Tasks Without Any Programming
Have you ever wished a transmitter or limit alarm had a little more intelligence so you didn't need to burden your PC, PLC, or DCS with additional signal processing calculations? If so, you should consider Acromag's IntelliPack Signal Conditioners with a configurable internal microcontroller. IntelliPacks can independently apply mathematical and analytical functions to inputs for pre-processed outputs.
IntelliPacks are software-configured via USB or a serial port using easy setup screens. No programming is required. Just select the desired settings from a list or enter your application values to define linearization curves, sample rates, and relay trip points. You can enter equations as in a spreadsheet formula to calculate output based on arithmetic, logarithmic, exponential, conditional, and other relationships. Software simulation lets you test equations offline for output response to varied conditions.
Here is a sampling of functions IntelliPacks can perform:
• Scaling and totaling multiple 4-20mA flow sensor signals
• Converting a level signal to a proportional volume signal
• Transmit a signal representing the average or ratio of two flow lines
• Apply a transfer function where output is defined by an equation or curve
• Control relays with window/band-pass, deviation, and rate-of-change limits
• Detect peak and valley signal values and hold an alarm state
• Output a pulse signal to calculate flow, volume, weight, or power
• Apply pulse-width modulation or hold the output value from a critical event
