ADP15 - SP16 Indicator and Controller with up to 16 set points

The DIN rail mounted remote relay units offer an increased number of set points over that provided by a standard ADP15 indicator/controller. This allows for multi action operations. The software of the ADP-SP16 gives the user freedom to program the number of set points for their requirements. A single ADP-SP16 will control up to 16 set points, programmed from its front panel. Set points can be individually set up with In Flight compensation and hysteresis values. Separate 'Output Latch' and 'Output Action' for up to 14 of the 16 set points is available, settable from the front panel of the ADP-SP16. A special mnemonic allows the user to specify the number of set points to be used. A DIN rail mounted power supply unit is required where more than 4 set points are to be used. The units are driven from the ADP-SP16 via an internal special remote driver board. All relays are pluggable and connections are made via field screw terminals. Outputs include:- Analogue voltage and current, Industry standard digital communications, Relays, Printer Drive Options and Accessories include:- Panel mounting via DIN rail mounting, Power supplies for 110/230 V AC or 9-32V DC, Communications for Printer, PLC or PC. Software Options include:- Power Factor Printers DP data only and TDP for real time/date. Printers DP data only and TDP for real time/date.
