8-Variable Fieldbus Indicator
FOUNDATION Field Device
BA444DF Intrinsically safe, 8 variable field mounting fieldbus indicator
This bus powered, field mounting, intrinsically safe indicator features a
bold 20mm high 5 digit display with a 31 segment scaleable horizontal
bargraph. It can display up to 8 variables which are selected by the
front panel push buttons.
The indicator uses 2 Input Selector (IS) and 6 Digital Input (DI)
function blocks providing compatibility with most hosts and allowing the
push buttons to be used for returning operator acknowledgements.
Housed in a robust IP66 GRP enclosure the indicator has ATEX, IECEx, FM
and cFM intrinsic safety certification with FISCO and entity
parameters. Nonincendive approvals are also included for North American
applications. The indicator will operate at temperatures between -20ºC
and +70ºC and is suitable for offshore applications.
The BA444DF is part of an extensive range of single and 8 variable
fieldbus indicators and fieldbus displays manufactured by BEKA associates.
