Moore Industries obtains UL approval for Signal Conditioners
April 29, 2010 - Moore Industries certified miniMOORE Multi-Channel Signal Conditioners through Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL). The 2-channel MIT and the 2- and 4-channel MIX miniMOORE products now meet UL 508 criteriathe UL safety standard for industrial control equipment. miniMOORE Signal Conditioners have received UL approval under NMTR.E159337 for [Industrial Control Equipment] Power-circuit and motor-mounted apparatuses. miniMOORE products are now approved to be mounted in UL 508 cabinets for use in ordinary locations in accordance with the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70. UL 508, the safety standard for industrial control equipment, covers requirements for:
Devices rated 1500 volts or less;
Products intended for use in an ambient temperature of 0-40°C (32-104°F).
UL has long-standing expertise in product safety testing and certification for industrial equipment products in accordance with the North American and IEC/EN standards.For systems integrators and panel shops, the miniMOORE approvals team acquired the UL 508 certification to make multi-channel signal conditioners more appealing for UL 508 cabinet installations.About miniMOORE miniMOORE Signal Conditioners deliver up to four low-cost I/O channels in a 1 inch (25.4 mm) footprint, which equates to 0.25 inch (6.35 mm) per channel.Providing 1000Vrms input-to-output and channel-to-channel signal isolation, the complete miniMOORE family can be used to isolate, convert, boost and split analog signals.miniMOORE signal conditioners feature the companys rugged, industrial metal housings, providing superior protection against radio frequency (RFI) and electromagnetic (EMI) interference. These signal conditioners come in compact 2-channel and 4-channel models. The 2-wire (loop) and universal AC/DC 4-wire (line/mains) powered versions accommodate every available industrial power supply. On the 2-channel versions, a conveniently located DIP-switch is used to select analog input types of 4-20mA, 0-5V, 1-5V or 0-10V. A low-cost 4-channel model accepts 4-20mA inputs. Both 2- and 4-channel models provide isolated 4-20mA outputs ready for interface with an indicator, recorder, DCS, PLC or PC-based SCADA system.
