PR electronics launches multifunctional PR 4184 transmitter

As part of its new 4000 series line of multifunctional transmitters, PR electronics has launched the 4184 Universal uni-/bipolar signal transmitter. One of seven new transmitter variants, the PR 4184 is designed for a wide range of applications, resulting in reduced stock, increased flexibility and greater competitiveness.

Simplify spare part inventories

Signal conditioning spare part inventories are a necessary part of running a manufacturing process, which is why many factory managers aim to keep their inventories to a minimum. A fast and simple way to achieve this is by opting for multifunctional transmitters as the site standard. Having one variant that applies to a broad range of signal conditioning applications greatly simplifies the need for spare parts.

The PR electronics 4000 series of multifunctional transmitters offer versatile devices for isolation, conversion, scaling, amplification, alarming, control and more. They are used in a wide range of industries such as chemical industry, energy industry, water supply and wastewater, factory automation, cement, etc.

Detachable display for easy configuration and diagnostics

The 4184 Universal uni-/bipolar converter, described by PR electronics as the “world’s most versatile converter”, can be operated by a detachable display for easy configuration and diagnostics. The module interfaces analogue active signals or powers 2/3-wire transmitters from more or less any field-device, such as pressure, flow and level transmitters, as well as, torque, position, current and acceleration sensors.

This makes it the perfect interface for connecting devices like PLC, DCS, chart recorders and more. This is particularly useful wherever end users are looking for a product to become the site standard, where it is essential to secure a high-accuracy signal, eliminate noise issues, and provide a strong galvanic isolation protection.

Features and benefits of the PR 4184

Product features of the PR 4184 include:

  • The module provides uni-/bipolar current and voltage output, or a passive 2-wire mA output.
  • Extremely good signal dynamics for spans from 25 mV to 300 VDC.
  • Fast < 20 ms response time and excellent 0.05% accuracy.
  • Galvanic isolation with the capability of measuring +/- 300 VDC and +/- 100 mA.
  • Special functions: Square root with adjustable low cut-off, buffered voltage output (+/- 20 VDC into min. 2,000 Ω), V-function.
  • The module can excite 2- and 3-wire transmitters and has built-in 2.5 V reference for exciting potentiometer input.
  • It has configurable input limits controlling the output for increased safety.
  • The module meets the demand from both NAMUR NE21 and NAMUR NE43.

Combine with detachable communication interfaces

Simon Bisbo, Chief Sales Officer at PR electronics, said: “The unique combination of the PR 4184 with one of our detachable communication interfaces makes it one of the safest modules of its kind, as changes can only be made with an interface. Trouble-shooting is also done fast and easy, as technicians do not need any extra measuring equipment.”

“Commissioning the devices after installing is also possible in an extremely short time, as the communication interfaces are incredibly easy to use,” he added.
