937C Converter Barriers

Our Bulletin 937C Converter Barriers add functionality to the isolators by receiving signals from a hazardous area instrument i.e., temperature sensors, or load cells, and then converting them to an industry standardized signal such as 0/4…20mA or 0/2…10V. Pulse evaluation units process a frequency signal at the input. A lead fault monitoring system signals a lead breakage or lead short-circuit on the signal cables.

Features

  • Uses integrated diagnostics for simple maintenance and quick change of modules during ongoing operation
  • Uses DIP switches or Field Device Tool software for easy configuration
  • Provides easy and reliable planning and documentation with comprehensive standards compliance up to SIL 3
  • Offers horizontal or vertical mounting with no reduction in operational ratings
  • Includes line fault detection for field circuits
  • Provides power rail for reduced wiring, collective error messaging, and efficient troubleshooting and installation
  • Isolates galvanic and break ground loops which avoids inaccurate I/O signal readings and limits energy to the circuit

FDT Interface

FDT standardizes the communication and configuration interface between devices and control system or engineering or asset management tools. Examples include: PACTware™, FieldCare, FactoryTalk AssetCentre, and Process Device Configuration. 

Device Type Manager

The Device Type Manager (DTM) provides a unified structure for accessing device-specific data, functions, and logic elements. DTMs range from a simple graphical user interface for setting device parameters to a highly sophisticated application that can perform complex calculations for diagnostics and maintenance purposes. DTMs can also implement arbitrary complex business logics for device calibration.
