240 Series Input Modules
Model 240 Series features
- 2 or 8 cryogenic temperature sensor inputs
- Supports industry-leading Lake Shore Cernox®, platinum, and other RTDs, plus DT-670 diodes
- Monitor temperatures from 1 K to 800 K
- PROFIBUS-DP communication integrates with distributed PLC-based control architectures
Simplifying large-scale cryogenic temperature measurement
The 240 Series offers a convenient, modular input solution for precision monitoring of cryogenic temperature sensors in large-scale applications employing distributed PLC-based control.
Lake Shore benchtop cryogenic instruments are trusted throughout the world for precision temperature measurement—now that same measurement performance can be achieved in widely distributed high-energy applications, like particle accelerators and fusion reactors, as well as other large industrial sites.
Benefits of the 240 Series input modules
- Native support for PROFIBUS, allowing the modules to be integrated into a wide range of PLC networks
- Temperature values are communicated directly with the PLC master device, removing the need to use additional costly analog conversion equipment or complex PLC programming to generate temperature values
- Measurement circuitry based on Lake Shore’s industry leading benchtop instruments, allowing for longer cable runs between sensor and module; ideal for applications where sensors must be located in hazardous environments
- Normal mode with EMF-cancellation and signal filtering for the best measurement possible or high-speed mode for the fastest notification of a temperature change
- A high-quality OLED display on the front provides helpful status and measurement data; this is in addition to being able to access this information via the PLC network or the local USB connection
- Convenient pluggable connectors allow individual sensors to be disconnected for maintenance without losing readings from other sensors on the same module
- Easy DIN rail mounting with integrated rear connections allowing power and fieldbus communications to be shared between modules
