Industrial signal conditioning
The branched network of conductors in measurement and control technology are to the industrial environment what the nerve pathways are to the human body.
In industrial applications, sensors and actuators deliver and receive a large number of measured values that must be reliably transmitted from the field to the control level and back.
Isolate, convert, filter, amplify, switch – interface technology from Phoenix Contact ensures reliable signal conditioning.
Adapt and protect digital and analog process signals
In process automation, the signal transmission is affected by increasingly electrical environments. This holds especially true for the weak measured value signals emitted by the sensors.
Signal conditioners and measuring transducers separate, convert, filter, and amplify these signals.
Electronic marshalling versus standard signal marshalling
In I/O signal marshalling for standard I/O systems, the field signals are sorted in the marshalling level according to their signal type and processed via the interface level. They are then wired to the signal-specific I/O board on the control unit. In contrast, I/O signal routing and conversion for universal I/O systems allows flexible assignment of channels from the field to the controller.
