Electromagnetic Compatibility




The iDRN-RTD and iDRX-RTD signal conditioners provide highly accurate, stable, isolated measurement of RTD temperature sensors. Both models can accept 2, 3, or 4 wire 100ohm PT, 500ohm PT, 1000ohm PT RTDs.

TWO MODELS: ANALOG or DIGITAL OUTPUTS
The iDRN-RTD provides a fully scalable analog output that is proportional to the input signal. The iDRX-RTD uses digital RS-485 communications.

ANALOG OUTPUT MODEL
The output of the iDRN-RTD can be user set for 0 to 10 V, 4 to 20 mA or 0 to 20 mA. Input scaling and configuration of other operating parameters is accomplished by connecting to a standard RS-232 port of a personal computer and using the Windows-based setup software. Once configured the settings may be stored in non-volatile memory and the unit disconnected from the PC.

DIGITAL OUTPUT MODEL
The iDRX-RTD is a digital signal conditioner which communicates over an RS-485 communication link using either a simple, straightforward NEWPORT® ASCII Serial Protocol or MODBUS Serial Protocol. Up to 32 modules may be connected to a single RS-485 port stretching up to 4,000 ft. without repeaters.

ETHERNET CONNECTION
The Optional EIT-D iServer module can connect up to thirty-two (32) iDRX RS-485 Signal Conditioners to an Ethernet network and the Internet using standard TCP/IP protocol. The iServer can also be used as a simple Serial to Ethernet "bridge" or converter to connect a single iDRN RS-232 device to an Ethernet network and the Internet.

Factory Setup and Configuration at No Extra Charge
To make your installation even easier, your iDRN (Analog Output and RS-232) signal conditioners can be ordered preconfigured by the factory at no extra charge. You select the input types, ranges and output scale and we will program the instruments to your specific requirements in our calibration lab prior to shipment. For custom factory setup and scaling of the iDRN model, please specify the “-FS” option.

Please Specify:
Type & Resistance
Temperature High & Low
Output Value High & Low
Example: Type Pt100; 0.00385; 4-wire; 0°C = 4 mA, 100°C = 20 mA

Free Active X Controls
Free Active X Controls are provided for the iDRN/iDRX series Signal Conditioners. This free software makes it easy to integrate the "iDRN/iDRX Signal Conditioners" with "Active X Containers" such as Microsoft Visual Basic as well as with popular OLE compliant data acquisition, process control, and industrial automation software from NEWPORT® as well as Wonderware, Intellution, Rockwell Automation, and Object Automation among others.
