Condition Sensor Interface – CSI-B-2
The condition monitoring interface module CSI-B-2 is a further element in the HYDAC Condition Monitoring concept, connecting the sensor level with the interpretation level. It is an all-purpose electronic instrument for converting the HSI signal from HYDAC sensors into a standardised PC signal.
Using the HYDAC “FluMoS” PC software, it is, therefore, possible to read the data and measured values of the connected sensors immediately. The long-term memory can also be read, as well as adjustments made and parameters set on the connected sensors (the setting options are sensor dependent).
The HSI signal can be converted either into a RS 232 or a RS 485 signal. The RS 232 port and possibly an additional standard RS 232/USB adapter can be used to connect the CSI-B-2 to any PC. By using the RS 485 port and an appropriate additional coupling module, connection to higher-level control and/ or bus systems is also possible.
- Input channels for HYDAC sensors
- Direct connection of the sensors via screw terminals
- Indication of the active interface via LED (RS232 / RS485)
- Very compact design
- Suitable for mounting on DIN rails
- Protection class IP 40
