ELX4181 | 1-channel analog output terminal 0/4…20 mA, single-ended, HART, 16 bit, Ex i

ExThe ELX4181 analog output terminal is used for the direct control of intrinsically safe field devices located in hazardous areas classified Zone 0/20 or 1/21. It can optionally function as a 0…20 mA or 4…20 mA interface and enables communication with the help of the HART protocol (Highway Adressable Remote Transducer). The HART protocol enables two-way communication through digital data transfer via the analog interface. The ELX4181 is supplied via the power contacts of the ELX9560 power feed terminal. The EtherCAT Terminal indicates the signal state by means of light emitting diodes. Error LEDs signal overload and wire breakage, and additional LEDs provide information about the state of the HART communication and indicate any communication errors.
