The cost-sensitive converters from Knick’s BasicLine series cover all standard control cabinet functions. The versatile BL 510 isolation amplifier in a space-saving 6 mm DIN-rail housing converts standard signals to the required unit of measurement. Galvanic three-port isolation, a standard feature of Knick products, ensures reliable isolation of input, output, and auxiliary power supply potentials, which prevents measurement errors or distortion.
The device features a calibrated range selection function that makes manual adjustments unnecessary. Users can select any combination of 0/4.-20 mA and 10 V signals for input and output. Furthermore, DIP switches allow for easy configuration while being protected against accidental setting changes. As an additional benefit, the isolator has a low power dissipation, enabling high packing density and ensuring a long product lifetime. The BL 510 is CE-compliant and UL-certified. Knick provides a three-year warranty for the device. Strictly concentrating on basic functions, leaving all extras aside, Knick has tailored BasicLine devices to mechanical engineering companies that need precise and reliable yet cost-optimised isolators for large-scale applications. Notwithstanding the attractive price scheme, the devices feature Knick’s characteristic high level of manufacturing quality and precision as well as complete galvanic isolation. BasicLine comprises transducers for all major control cabinet requirements: current, voltage, or temperature measurement, conversion of standard signals or measured values, signal isolation, and set-point monitoring. This comprehensive product range from a one-stop provider has various benefits for customers: consistent documentation of specifications and certifications, and a competent, reliable partner for all requirements involved in installation and operation. For crucial applications that require increased protection, extended functionalities, or customisation, Knick supplies the established ProLine series of high-end isolation amplifiers.
