The Signet 0486 Profi bus Concentrator allows for simplified connection of Signet sensors to a PROFIBUS network. The 0486 supports six sensor interfaces and a 4 to 20 mA current loop proportional valve interface. The 0486 supports PROFIBUS DPV1 and is available with either DB9 or M12 network connectors.
The 0486 sensor interfaces are multifunctional. All six inputs
are compatible with Signet digital (S3L) sensors, four
inputs are compatible with frequency output flow sensors, and two
inputs are compatible with
4 to 20 mA current loops. The 0486 PLC interface allows for complete control of the Signet sensors. The programmer is able to configure the sensor for the specific needs of their application, read measurements in engineering units, and gather diagnostic data to ensure accuracy and correctness of readings.
