ACT20X is a product family of signal converters for the Ex zone. With 11 mm width
per channel , these compact devices need little space in the cabinet. The signal converters have been specifically developed for process automation applications in hazardous (Ex) and non-hazardous zones.
The ACT20X series processes all standard input signals (2-wire HART, NAMUR, RTD,
thermocouples, DC signals) from the Ex zone 0 or provides digital and analogue signals, to drive field devices in explosion risk zones.
Fault and error messages can be forwarded via the integrated relay outputs. This helps identify errors quickly and increases system availability.
Using the WI-Manager − the configuration software based on FDT (Field Device Tool) technology −,
the ACT20X devices can be configured individually on the PC for different process
applications. Weidmüller supplies specific Device Type Managers (DTM),
which can be run in any FDT-based frame.
International approvals such as IECEx, ATEX, FM and UL permit their use worldwide.
