8 x digital output (NAMUR)
Inputs: 4 x analog input 4 – 20 mA (process temperature and pressure) – easy user selection via DIP switch between active/passive mode
1 x RTD (PT100/PT1000) – easy user selection via DIP switch between PT100/PT1000 and 2-/3-/4-wires
8 x digital input
Local User Interface: Human Machine Interface (HMI) – LCD backlight display located on the transmitter housing lid
Ethernet port:

b) Windows based program – GasEye logger for real time data acquisition,
c) remote service and diagnostics
Optional: Modbus (TCP/IP), Modbus RTU, Profinet, Profibus
Electrical Characteristics
Power input: 24 VDC nominal (19 – 30 VDC)
Power consumption: < 20VA
Additional build-in features
Automatic gain control (AGC): AGC ensures correct gas measurement even at high dust loads resulting in loss of optical transmission down to 0.5%. AGC operates fully automatic with no need for manual adjustment of the signal gain under any process conditions.
Self-calibration features: Internal reference gas compartment is used for closed loop control of the zero and span drift
