Condition Monitoring Interface Module – CSI-B-2
The condition monitoring interface module CSI-B-2 is another element in the HYDAC condition monitoring concept. It connects the sensor level with the interpretation level.
It is an all-purpose electronic instrument for converting the HSI signal from HYDAC SMART sensors into a standardised PC signal. Using the HYDAC “CMWIN” PC software, it is, therefore, possible to read the data and measured values of the connected SMART sensor directly.
The connected sensor can deliver long-term memory information, as well as adjustments made and parameters set on it (the setting options depend on the particular sensor).
The conversion of the HSI signal can be either into an RS 232 or an RS 485 signal. The connection of the CSI-B-2 can be to any PC via the RS 232 interface (and possibly an additional standard RS 232/USB adapter1). The RS 485 interface and appropriate additional coupling modules can also be used to connect to higher-level control and/or bus systems.
- 1 input channel for HYDAC SMART sensors
- Direct connection of the sensor via screw-type terminals
- Indication of the active interface via LED (RS 232 / RS 485)
- Very compact design
- Suitable for mounting on standard DIN rails
- Protection class IP 40
