The A2C-mA-M12 is a 0-20mA analyzer that can measure 3 x mA signals simultaneously. The analyzer can calculate True RMS values, minimum, maximum values, average value and combine multiple inputs with mathematical calculations. For instance, the difference between two inputs can be calculated (can be used for differential measurements). Other math operations are the ratio, product, and sum of two channels. The results calculated can be used to trigger up to 6 different alarms with programmable thresholds.
The sensor can communicate the measurements to a host via CAN Bus or it can be used in a standalone mode without any CAN bus connected after initial programming with the U2C accessory. In the event of an alarm triggering, the logic output is activated, which can be used to drive a relay / buzzer / lamp or plc input.
The optional USB programmer (U2C) with free software, simplifies programming, and no knowledge of CAN bus communication is required.
For each channel the following information can be requested over the CAN Bus:
The following math operation are available on all input channels, and both normal and RMS values can be used.
The following parameters are some of which can be programmed to trigger the logical output. The values to be checked can be the result of the math operations. For instance, the difference between two inputs can be setup to trigger when above a given value.
Some of the other features are:
No prior knowledge of CAN bus communication is required! You can check the U2C programmer and software here:
Connect the U2C to your PC after installing the drivers and software. Connect the A2CTRI to the U2C and apply power.
Using the free software, set the mode of operation and the alarm thresholds. View real time data from the sensor and have it shown graphically.
Install the sensor in its application and verify that everything works as it should. It is still possible to connect the U2C and log the real world data, which can be used for analysis.
Chassis Leveling - truck mounted crane
For a truck mounted crane, the A2C-TRI can detect if the chassis is within given angle thresholds. Each axis has programmable thresholds and hysteresis which is easily programmed with the U2C adaptor.
