Frequency measuring transducer for frequencies up to 120kHz

Jan 2000 Sensors & Transducers

The invariably adjustable frequency measuring transducer MCR-f/UI-DC from Phoenix Contact is suitable for frequencies up to 120 kHz. Inventory costs are lowered thanks to this flexibility because the user needs only to keep one unit in stock for a variety of applications. Downtimes are reduced due to simpler exchange procedures.

At the input side, all common frequency signals such as those from frequency generators, cyclic pulse generators as well as Namur sensors in 2, 3 and 4-wire technology, can be processed. Three-way isolation between signal input, signal output and supply assures accurate signal conversion and transmission. As well as an analog output for standard and inverted signals, there is also a transistor-switching output available for example to process alarm signals.

The transmission response from the frequency measuring transducer is easily set on the front panel or can be programmed by software. An LCD display indicates the incoming frequency signals as well as analog output signals.
