Mantracourt upgrades wireless relay module to accept more inputs, offer greater configuration flexibility and new operation modes
Electronic instrumentation manufacturer Mantracourt has announced the launch of an updated version of its T24-RM1 wireless relay module.
Offering dual power relays capable of mains switching, the new version will accept up to 16 inputs from T24 wireless instrumentation devices, it will sum up to two groups of eight acquisition modules and also provides new relay operation modes.
Developed in response to feedback from our customers, the new T24-RM1 is ideally suited to weighing applications where an alarm action is required in response to a set condition in a complex multi-sensor environment.
"Wireless instrumentation has opened up a vast array of new measurement and control possibilities," said Jonathan Purdue, Business Development Manager at Mantracourt, "especially in the field of lifting and load control. The updates to the relay module are very much due to feed-back from the marketplace, and we feel sure that these improvements will make the T24-RM1 a more complete solution when working in the field."
The Mantracourt T24 wireless telemetry range is a flexible low power radio system designed to enable the transmission of high accuracy measurement data from load cells, inclinometers, accelerometers, temperature, displacement and pressure sensors. With a combination of transmitter and receiver technologies, engineers are able to remotely monitor instrumentation readings.
"These relays can be configured as high, low or window alarms and can be associated with a group of up to eight acquisition modules per relay," said Jonathan. "The relays can then operate when the sum of the assigned acquisition modules reaches a set point or when any of the modules reach the set point. There is also a mode where the difference between the lowest and highest value is compared to the set point."
In operation, the T24-RM1 relays can be latched and a digital input or external command can be used to reset them; also, an alarm / error signal relay is operated if communication is lost or other selectable errors occur. The state of the power relays during an error can be selected. The alarm will reset once the source of the alarm or error is removed.
The T24-RM1 module is supplied in an IP65 sealed ABS case, and a DIN rail option is available.
UK-based Mantracourt is a world leader in the design and manufacture of electronics for measurement technologies, including strain gauge, temperature, resistance, pressure, voltage, current, potentiometer, rate, flow, LVDT and displacement in either analogue, digital or wireless form. Mantracourt has also recently been a pioneer in the field of remote data logging software.
Based near Exeter in the South-West of England, Mantracourt was awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade in 2009 and now has a product range of over 1,000 designs.
