EHELP: What is the 2 in IPT2

EHELP: What is the 2 in IPT2

Q:  A field tech told me he installed an IPT2/4-20MA/3-15PSIG/20PSIG/-FA1 [DIN] unit.  In the product bulletin I don't see a purpose for the trailing "2" in the model name, and I don't see an explanation for -FA1.

A: The “2” in IPT2 indicates that it is the successor to the older IPT. It is a direct replacement with same form/fit/function with improved performance.

The -FA1 option code is explained in table 2 on page 3 of the data sheet (click the link to open the download page).

It means that it has a mounting block for installation of the unit on DIN rail.  It also designates that the supply and outlet ports are on the bottom of the mounting block, the electrical signal test jacks, and electrical connections are on the front face, and that there is no pneumatic test jack.
