MTL5544 provides provides fully-floating dc supplies for energising two conventional 2-wire or 3-wire 4/20mA or HART transmitters located in an (ATEX) hazardous area, and repeats the current in other circuits to drive two safe-area loads. For smart transmitters, the unit allows bi-directional transmission of digital communication signals superimposed on the 4-20mA loop current. Alternatively, the MTL5544 acts as a current sink for a safe-area connection rather than driving a current into the load
MTL5544 ATEX isolation specifications:
Note that in its default design, (model: MTL5544) the barrier is supplied in source function (ie this will power the 4-20mA loop going back to your control system, in the safe area). We can also offer model: MTL5544/S which gives a sink function. A “sink” barrier requires you to put your own supply on the control side. Specify your requirements at quote stage with Fluidic.
For just single channel ATEX isolation, consider the MTL5541.
Fluidic have access to these ATEX barriers via our official Status partnership. Along with ATEX barriers (power supplies) we offer a range of ATEX qualified instruments from Status and our other partners. Our instrumentation engineers are product trained and are able to help with instrument selection within the full Status Instruments supply scope. Please call either office for more information (Glasgow 0141 641 5920, Warrington 01925 572401).
