Action Instruments Q106 DC Input, Field Configurable Limit Alarm

DC Input, Field Configurable Limit Alarm

The ActionI/Q model Q106 is a DIN rail mount, DC voltage or current input limit alarm with dual setpoints and two contact closure outputs. The field configurable input and alarm functions offer flexible setpoint capability. Input voltage spans from 10mV to 200V and input current spans from 1mA to 100mA can be field configured. Bipolar inputs are also accepted.

Thanks to Action Instruments TouchCAL Technology, the Q106 is configurable as a single or dual setpoint alarm, with HI or LO trips and failsafe or non-failsafe operation. Also included are adjustable deadbands (up to 100% of full scale input) for each setpoint, a 24VDC voltage source (isolated from line power) for transducer excitation, and a universal AC power supply which accepts any voltage between 85 and 265VAC.
