Spring terminals added to signal conditioners
Pepperl+Fuchs has added spring terminals to their KC Series Signal Conditioners to simplify installation. The conditioners are also available with screw terminals and loop-powered and analog isolators.
Pepperl+Fuchs 12.5mm-wide KC Series Signal Conditioners are now available with spring terminals to simplify and speed installation. In addition to their slim footprint, KC modules consume minimal power to reduce heat output when compared with competitive signal conditioners. They are designed to provide signal conditioning solution in control rooms with limited space in hazardous areas as well as general purpose locations. KC modules are also available with screw terminals.
The SIL-rated KC modules deliver broad range with 3-port isolation, and are easily programmed and configured in the field with pushbutton or dip switch logic functions. They provide limit detection with form C alarm contacts, as well as fault detection and alarm functionality. Additional features include loop-powered and analog isolators as well as removable terminals to reduce maintenance.
