Isolated Barriers

With galvanic optical or transformer isolation, these modules provide an interface within the intrinsic safety circuit that
is electrically separated from the control system. A key advantage of isolated barriers is that they do not require a
ground between the module and the intrinsically safe device. Available in 12.5 mm (0.5 in) and 20mm (0.8 in) widths.

Switch Amplifiers SMART Current Drivers


Switch Amplifiers are used to transfer SMART Current Drivers drive SMART I/P
digital signals (NAMUR converters, electrical valves, and
sensors/mechanical contacts) from a positioners in hazardous areas.
hazardous area to a safe area. Select
modules are available with relay
output or transistor output, in
addition to signal splitters. A unique
collective error messaging feature is
available when used with the Power Solenoid Drivers
Rail system. Due to its compact Solenoid Drivers supply power to
housing design and low heat solenoids, LEDs, and audible alarms
dissipation, this device is useful for located in a hazardous area.
detecting positions, end stops, and
switching states in space-critical
applications.

SMART Transmitter Power Supplies


SMART Transmitter Power Supplies
supply 2-wire SMART transmitters in a
hazardous area, and can also be used
with 2-wire SMART current sources.
They transfer the analog input signal
to the safe area as an isolated current
value. Modules with splitter feature
provide two isolated output signals.

Temperature Repeaters
Temperature Repeaters transfer RTD
resistance values from hazardous
areas to safe areas. A 2-, 3-, or 4-wire
mode is available depending on the
required accuracy. The monitor
registers the same load as if it were
connected directly to the resistance
in a hazardous area.

This isolated barrier is used for intrinsicsafety applications. It


supplies power to solenoids, LEDs, and audible alarms
located in a hazardous area. It is loop powered, so the
available energy at the output is received from the input
signal. The output signal has a resistive characteristic. As a
result the output voltage and current are dependent on the
load and the input voltage. At full load, 12 V at 45 mA is
available for the hazardous area application.

Converter Barriers

Converters add functionality to the isolators by receiving signals from a hazardous area instrument e.g.,
temperature sensors, or load cells and then converting them to an industry standardized signal such as
0/420mA or 0/210V. 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.

Universal Temperature Strain Gauge Converters


Converters Strain Gauge Converters are used
Universal Temperature Converters with strain gauges, load cells and

The device supplies 2-wire and 3-wire transmitters, and can
also be used with current sources. Two relays and an active
0/4 mA ... 20 mA current source are available as outputs. The
relay contacts and the current output can be integrated in
security-relevant circuits. The current output is easily scaled.
On the display the measured value can be indicated in
various physical units. The device is easily configured by the
use of keypad or with the PACTware configuration software.
The input has a line fault detection. A fault is signalized by
LEDs acc. to NAMUR NE44 and a separate collective error
message output.

Zener Barriers

Zener barriers have long been a cost-effective solution for providing an intrinsically safe interface with field devices located in
the hazardous area. Allen-Bradley Zener barriers provide protection for electrical signals within hazardous areas and feature a
narrow profile of just 12.5 mm to maximize control panel space. Zener barrier prevents the transfer of unacceptably high
energy from the safe area into the hazardous area. These Zener barriers have a positive polarity, which means the anodes of
the Zener diodes are grounded. Depending on the application, increased or decreased intrinsic safety parameters apply for
serial or parallel connection. These barriers simply snap onto a standard DIN rail for easy installation and grounding.

Zener barriers are available


in the following types:

 Standard one- or two-channel barriers

 The diode return feature prevents a current into the hazardous


area, therefore the current assumption for intrinsic safety
calculations is zero

 In addition to the diode return feature, the high power version


has a smaller serial resistance and therefore provides higher
voltage to the field device
