  • Page 57: Connecting Outputs To A Plc Or An Isolation Amplifier

    When connecting the outputs to a customer system (e.g. PLC) galvanic separation of both systems is strongly recommended. Especially when using or connecting the EK280 to a hazardous area (hazardous area 1), an external isolation amplifier (permitted for use in hazardous areas) or usage of the FE260 is required.
  • Page 58: Isolating Outputs (Galvanic Isolation)

    Galvanic separation of the outputs is not relevant with regard to hazardous areas. If using the EK280 in hazardous area 1 then a permitted, external separator is required which is suitable for use in hazardous areas. An electrically isolated output only requires electricity provided that the output is active (switched on).

    As described in  chapter 6.9, each of the four pulse and message outputs (terminals "DA1" to "DA4") can be isolated (galvanically isolated) from the rest of the EK280 circuitry. Isolation of the outputs decreases the CPU battery life. It is therefore advisable, prior to isolation activation as described in these  chapter, to estimate battery life.
  • Page 221 Also the adjustable pulse duration of an isolated output should be as low as possible, i.e. only as long as required by the connected device. The battery capacity required by an isolated output for pulse output is determined by the EK280 and subtracted from the "BatRC" remaining battery life. However as the EK280 does not know how many pulses are to be output in the future, the predicted remaining battery life "Bat.R"...
