Omega introduces DRSL-U signal conditioner

May 9, 2016 - Omega Engineering announced the DRSL-U isolated universal input DIN rail signal conditioner. The DRSL-U provides a competitive choice for galvanic isolation of process signals to SCADA systems or PLC equipment.

The DRSL-U accepts thermocouple, RTD, linear resistance, potentiometer, voltage or current input and converts these signals to linear voltage or current output. The unit offers isolation between input, output and supply, provides surge suppression and protects control systems from transients and noise. The DRSL-U also provides electrical isolation and eliminates ground loops and can be used for measuring floating signals.

The DRSL-U is space efficient and has a slimline housing that is 6 mm (0.24") wide. Up to 50 units can be mounted on a DIN rail in the control panel and occupy only 30 cm (11.8") on the rail. The DRSL-U’s low power design makes the typical 24 Vdc power requirement for 50 units only 40 W. DRSL-U signal conditioners can be stacked either vertically or horizontally and do not require an air gap in between modules.

The DRSL-U is configured by using the DRSL-DISPLAY programming interface in conjunction with the DRSL-ADAPTOR configuration adaptor. The DRSL-DISPLAY has a 4-line LCD display with scrolling help text in 7 languages (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Danish and Swedish) which guides the user through all the configuration steps. The DRSL-U is designed with electronic hardware switches, consequently it is not necessary to open the device to set any internal DIP-switches.
