Following on from the recent launch of the higher density analogue modules for the Idec PLC Pentra and MicroSmart range, the company has also upgraded the original 2- and 3-channel analogue and thermocouple modules.
Significant improvements have been made in the sampling duration time, (20ms down to 10ms), the total input system transfer time (105ms down to 60ms), and the total output system transfer time (50ms down to 10ms). Also the resolution of the thermocouple module has been improved from 12 to 14-bits, giving an accuracy of one part in 16384. Finally, the electrical noise tolerance level has also been improved when subjected to electrical noise, which means the modules are less susceptible to interference when operating in harsh environments.
