Type 140 Electronic Converter


 Advanced electronic control
 ATEX certified
 Explosion proof and Intrinsically safe
 Complete Electronics Modularity For Ease of Maintenance
 Jack Socket for On-site Monitoring
 Fail-Safe (unit pressure falls to zero on signal failure)
 Field replaceable filter

General Description

The 140 proportional I/P converter uses advanced closed loop solid-state electronic control to achieve accurate, high resolution pressure control. It is available in intrinsically safe and Type n versions and its vibration immunity and IP66 weatherproof rating
make it ideal for field application.

*Electrical Signal 4-20mA (two wire) Terminal voltage <6.5V
*Min Operating Current >3.5mA
*Overload Protection 100mA max overload current
*Insulation Resistance >100MOhm at 850Vdc, electrical terminals to case
*Connections 1/2” NPT or M20 via adapter; internal terminal block with capacity up to 2.5mm2 cable

All instruments are tested on the Watson Smith Automatic Testing System and an individual test certificate is provided at no extra charge. Each unit is tested for linearity, hysteresis, total error, settling error, over pressure, air consumption, response time, calibration, insulation, start-up current, supply sensitivity and voltage load.
