E-HELP: Isolating Feedback on VFDs

E-HELP: Isolating Feedback on VFDs
Q: We are a boiler/burner company dealing with a rising amount of computer-based burner controls. We have installed several and have some blowers that are controlled by VFDs (Variable Frequency Drives). We have run into issues with noise on certain systems. We get occasional problems with 4-20mA feedback from the VFD despite going through the proper grounding techniques. We are wondering if installing an opto isolator on the feedback loop might eliminate our issue. We have used the SIX Signal Isolator many times on the signal going to the VFD to offset impedance issues on the VFD. Can we put an opto isolator on both signals?

EHELP: Need a Signal Isolator with Input of 0-5VDC

EHELP: Need a Signal Isolator with Input of 0-5VDC

Q. We are looking for a signal isolator. We need an input of 0-5VDC, output 4-20mA and the unit needs to be output loop powered.  What do you recommend?

EHELP: Application for an Analog Splitter

EHELP: Application for an Analog Splitter

Q. I have an application that requires an analog splitter. The single input signal to the splitter comes from a transducer, and the transducer requires loop power. The two outputs are going to an active analog monitoring card on a PLC, which provides power to the connected 4-20mA signals. Is the ECT what I need?

EHELP: STA Analog Output Protection

EHELP: STA Analog Output Protection
Q:  In specifying the Moore STA / HLPRG / 3PRG / U / -AO [DIN] our end user has a concern about electrical protection for the analog output. The desire is to use 4-20mA Output Loop Voltage sourced by DCS for the AO; however, this voltage may fault at up to 132 VAC. Should our design add fuse protection in the external voltage circuit upstream of the STA to protect it from these surges? Or does the STA include features that protect it from these faults?

Burner Management System Signal Splitter Application for a Pulp and Paper Mill

A pulp and paper mill had a black liquor BMS (Burner Management System) that per NFPA 85 requires that its safety logic system be totally independent from other logic systems.  The challenge was they required that key temperature and pressure signals also get monitored and recorded by their BPCS (Basic Process Control System). Learn how Moore Industries solved this problem.
