881– NX/H/V is a Universal Input Scanner intended for continuous monitors of
process parameters.
It incorporates advanced software features and micro controller based design
to provide complete user flexibility and can cater to almost all monitoring and
data acquisition needs of the user. It can be user programmed to cover
different application needs thus reducing time, inventory and spares cost. It
accepts direct signals from thermocouples, RTDs and linear voltage and
current inputs, either as fixed type or programmable universal input. Each
channel is sequentially scanned and active channels are displayed, Individual
channels can be locked for monitoring using the E key. Flexible alarm logic
and grouping is provided to energize alarm relay outputs as per the process
parameter values and programmed set points.
Serial communication is provided to enable the scanner to communicate with
PC (RS 232/RS 485 optional.
 Site programmable mixed inputs, ranges, decimals, alarm/trip values.
 4 relays with C/O contacts freely allocatable/grouped to any channel
alarm/trip.
 All functions –operation, configuration, calibration and configuration from
keyboard.

 RS-232 Serial Communication port or RS485 port OPTIONAL.
 16 inputs and 8 relay outputs standard (refer factory for more
inputs/outputs)
 2 nos 4-digit 7-segment LEDs for Process Values, Channel Numbers,
alarms etc.
