These alarms accept DC voltage/current input signals and provide relay output if the input exceeds user-defined set-point limits.

Numerous options and features make these alarms easy to use and well-suited for a wide range of limit monitoring and on/off controller applications. Three-way isolation eliminates ground loops to simplify installation. And for easier use in the field, these alarms withstand extreme temperatures and have accessible set-point voltage test points. Other features include alarm/power status LEDs and independent set-point and dead band adjustment pots.

Performance Specifications

Input

Input:
-V1: 0 to 1V DC.
1M ohm input impedance or 0 to 20mA DC via 50 ohm internal resistor.
-V5: 0 to 5V DC.
1M ohm input impedance or 0 to 20mA DC via 250 ohm internal resistor.
-V0: 0 to 10V DC. 100K ohm input impedance.
-V50: 0 to 50V DC. 500K ohm input impedance.
-V100: 0 to 100V DC. 1M ohm input impedance.

AC Current Sensor (5020-350):
Used with -V1 input option only.
Input range is function of turns placed on sensor.
1 turn = 0 to 20A AC; 2 turns = 0 to 10A;
4 turns = 0 to 5A; 10 turns = 0 to 2A.

Setpoint Adjust:
0 to 115% of input span via 15-turn potentiometer.
Resolution better than 0.1% of span, continuous.

Deadband Adjust (hysteresis): 1 to 100% of input span for each channel via 15-turn potentiometer(s). Adjustments are independent on dual alarm models.

Automatic Reset (non-latching alarms):
The alarm resets to its non-alarm state as soon as input signal is outside of the selected deadband. If the deadband is set to its extreme (100%), then the alarm is effectively latching and will not reset till the input signal is at or below 0%.

Repeatability: Repeatable to better than ±0.1% of input span

Output/Relays

Output:
-SMRN: Single alarm. One SPDT dry-contact sealed relay.
-DMRN: Dual Alarm, two SPDT relays.

Electrical Life – CSA Ratings:

How to Use an AC Current Sensor Application Note
Using Acromag’s AC Current Sensor Model 5020-350 Transmitters with DC current input can be used used in conjunction with an external AC Current Sensor to precondition an AC current input signal. This sensor is a highly accurate toroidal instrument transformer that converts an AC current signal to a safe, low-level, DC milliampere signal (0 to 11.17mA)....
