Description

Brainchild Safety L41 Limit Controller is over-temperature protection or a high limit safety device with a latching output, that removes power in an abnormal condition during the process that is higher than the high limit set point or lower than the low limit set point.

The unit is powered by an 11-26 or 90-250 VDC/VAC supply, incorporating a 3 amp. form C relay for limit control, an universal input that is fully programmable for PT100, thermocouple types J,
K, T, E, B, R, S, N, L, and 0~60mV, an option port available for one of the following functions: alarm output, RS-485 communication interface, DC power supply output, limit annunciator output, and event input. Alternative output options include SSR drive and triac. The input signal is digitized by using an 18-bit A-to-D converter. Its fast sampling rate (5 times/second) allows the L91 to control fast processes such as pressure and flow.

Digital communication RS-485 is available as an additional option. This option allows L41 to be integrated with a supervisory control system. An alarm output is another option. A variety of alarm functions and alarm modes can be programmed for a specific application. The DC power supply output option is used for an external sensor or transmitter. The event input option can be programmed for remote reset or remote lock signal input. The limit annunciator option can be used to control an alarm buzzer.

Thress kinds of methods can be used to program L41.

  1. Use keys on the front panel to program the unit manually,
  2. Use a PC and setup software to program the unit via the RS-485 port and
  3. Use a pc and configuration software to program the unit via the programming port.

High accuracy, maximum flexibility, fast response and user-friendly are the main feature of L41
