Signal Converters, Loop Isolators, Signal Conditioners
Signal conditioners and converters are ancillary devices intended to amplify, filter, condition, scale, and convert the low level “raw” signals produced by many transducers and convert it into the desired, industry standard high level signal before transmitting it across a potentially noisy environment. In some cases, a secondary function is providing signal isolation.
Monitors for Process, Level and Temperature
A Process Monitor is a general purpose instrument that is intended to condition the electrical signal generated by a process sensor and scale the resulting information into a display in the units of measure desired by the end user. Additional, functionality such as alarms, analog output, and serial communications may also be provided.
Loop Powered, Battery Powered Rate/Total Indicators
Field indicators are signal conditioner/converter devices with a display. Field Indicators are intended for mounting on or near the flow sensor. They perform many of the same roles of signal conditioner/converters plus that of providing a convenient local display. Many “smart” Field Indicators provide additional, advanced functionality such as sensor linearization.
Rate Monitors, Totalizers, Rate/Total Indicators with Alarms
A Rate/Totalizer Indicator is a general purpose instrument which conditions the electrical signal generated by the flowmeter and scales the resulting flow information into a flow rate and flow total display in the units of measure desired by the end user. Additional functionality such as alarms, analog output, pulse output, and serial communications may also be provided. Also see the section on flow computers.
Flow Batch Controllers
A Flow Batch Controller is a special purpose instrument which is intended to be used in conjunction with a flow sensor and a control valve to dispense a desired amount of a fluid into a container, tank, or vehicle. In some cases the temperature may also be used to estimate the fluid density from stored fluid properties.
A Flow Computer is a special purpose device which computes a corrected flow based on information derived from raw input signals and stored sensor and fluid properties information
What are the typical applications requiring a flow computer? Computation of Heat Flow, Mass Flow, Corrected Volume Flow typically require a flow computer. In addition, many flow sensors require linearization to improve accuracy. The flow computer is also used for data logging, communication, remote metering, alarming and control functions. In many cases a flow computer may replace some of the functionality of a small PLC in your application.
The KEPC-GB monitors are a series of Glass Bridge TFT LCD Display monitors specifically conceived to match the design and functionality in the commercial vessel market. KEP glass bridge monitors are built with the same rugged design as the KEPC monitors. The Glass Bridge displays allow maximum screen size in the smallest spaces available. The displays can be flush mounted and aligned side by side to save space and form a continuous glass bridge central monitoring system.
They have been designed to comply with stringent approval standards and are designed to comply with ECDIS specifications. All of our monitors are provided with AC power inputs. Special attention has been made in building our power inverter for driving the backlight.
