MTL4500 series backplanes

The MTL4500 modules are designed for easy integration with DCS. Custom backplanes carry the I/O modules of the DCS or replace the field termination assemblies. Modularity of the interface matches the I/O cards of the system. Provides both galvanic isolation and intrinsic safety.

Integrated DCS solutions

Examples of key DCS solutions Honeywell



The major advantages of utilising MTL4500 Series are realised through the integration with the DCS systems.

Line Monitoring (LFD)

LFD available for all AI, AO, DI and DO 4-20mA has LFD by default AO has choice of s/c only or both s/c & o/c DI has different methods of alarming:
LED only LED + separate alarm relay output (grouped on b/p) LED + feedback into systems control signal via b/p

DO usually loop-powered so LFD not reqd.

But sometimes needed so separate alarm relay output available (grouped on backplane)
