DSI – Binary signal separator with input line diagnostics

CThe separator is designed for use in mine control systems and wherever cooperation with devices operating in explosive atmospheres is required. The device provides galvanic separation of control circuits from controlled circuits in compliance with intrinsic safety requirements, and current control of input line parameters with the distinction of the following states of short circuit, break (UKO only), closed contact, and open contact.

All operating states are signaled using light-emitting diodes.

DSI-01 separator is adapted to be powered from the power supply transmission line. Thanks to the low power consumption, it can use the line together with one device such as switchboard, methane meter, etc. For this purpose, it is necessary to ensure the serial connection of these devices.

The separator inputs are adapted for cooperation with intrinsically safe lines UKO or IZZO. Both intrinsically and non-intrinsically safe circuits with operating voltage up to 230VAC can be connected to their outputs.
