Product: MTL830 range of multiplexers with Ethernet
Description: Eaton announced a valuable new addition to its MTL830 range of multiplexers for Zone 0 hazardous area temperature measurement applications. The next generation MTL838C-MBT temperature multiplexer receiver features an integral Ethernet port. Using MODBUS TCP, the MTL838C-MBT temperature multiplexer offers an intelligent solution to process monitoring. The MTL838C-MBT is also PC-configurable. By using two transmitters and one MTL838C receiver, an Eaton multiplexer system can communicate the status of up to 32 inputs, reducing the number of hazardous area wiring pairs from 32 to one. The MTL831C multiplexer transmitter transposes the analogue signals from multiple temperature sensors within a hazardous area into digital data, which is then communicated through the MTL838C-MBT receiver to the host PLC, PC, or DCS via a standard Ethernet network. The MTL830C temperature multiplexer solution can transmit over distances of up to 1km in IS applications and 2km in non-IS applications. Offering integral power, comms, error, alarm 1 and alarm 2 functions, the device is suitable for installation in environments between -40°C and +70°C. The M831C holds international certifications for use in Zone 0 hazardous areas, including IECEx and ATEX as well as FM approval for installation in Division 1 hazardous locations.
