All MACX Analog Ex signal conditioners are approved in accordance with the applicable ATEX and IECEx standards:
In addition, relevant national approvals such as UL and GOST are available.
Phoenix Contact meets the requirements of functional safety according to IEC 61508 in a standardized development process.
The certified MACX Analog Ex signal conditioners are available in all safety-related applications up to SIL 2 or SIL 3. This ensures the highest level of reliability and safety for your systems.
In addition, patented circuit concepts ensure precise transmission and low current consumption. The resulting minimal self-heating results in a long service life for devices.
MACX Analog Ex signal conditioners offer two solutions for the device supply:
The system solution
Bridge the 24 V supply voltage using the DIN rail connector. This simplifies wiring, system expansion or module replacement. You can therefore either supply the supply voltage directly via any MACX Analog Ex module or use the power and error message module. In addition to easy power supply, this also offers a redundant supply decoupled from the diode plus the option of error indication.
The flexible solution
Thanks to the wide-range power supply, you can install appropriately equipped MACX Analog signal conditioners directly in all power supply networks – worldwide and without an additional power supply unit.
Compatible MACX Analog Ex signal conditioners can also be configured easily from the PC using the free software.
Here you can choose between three solutions:
The integrated monitoring function enables you to record current system values. All devices that support configuration via software can also be supplied preconfigured on request.
MACX Analog Ex signal conditioners can be configured very easily without software. You can choose from various configuration methods according to the device type:
MACX Analog Ex signal conditioners are equipped with plug-in connection terminal blocks. You can choose between screw technology or a spring-cage version with push-in technology.
Coding and clear marking ensure reliable protection against polarity reversal and prevent unintentional mismatching of pre-wired connection terminal blocks.
In addition, we have integrated sockets into the connection terminal blocks. They can be used to connect your HART communicators, for example.
Termination carriers are compact solutions for quickly and smoothly connecting DIN rail devices from the MACX Analog Ex series to input and output cards of automation systems.
Connect the termination carriers to your controller quickly and smoothly using pre-assembled VARIOFACE system cabling – plug and play.
You can therefore combine the advantages of modular DIN rail devices with those offered by plug and play system cabling to create a consistent solution for system technology.
