GF Piping Systems will introduce the new Signet 9950 dual channel transmitter and the Signet 3-0486-D Profibus concentrator at WEFTEC 2016 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The new Signet 9950 dual channel transmitter enables two measurement readings in one transmitter, offering cost savings and convenience by eliminating the necessity of multiple single channel transmitters in applications that require several measurements and a local display.

With its dual channel capability, users can connect two of the same sensor measurement types such as flow and flow, or two different types, such as pH and ORP.

Additional versatility is provided with its capability for multi-parameters through support of the complete line of Signet flow and analytical sensors, as well as other devices with a 4-20mA current loop output when using the Signet iGo module.

Large backlit dot matrix display with simplified menus illuminates both measurement readings simultaneously.

The unit’s derived functions allow control of relays and current loops with the sum, difference, or ratio of two like measurements.

Multiple relay modes allow up to three signals to be used to control a single relay, which can be done in any combination of analogue and binary inputs.

Time based relay modes enable setting relay activation on a repeating basis in minutes and on specific days and times during the week.

The new transmitter meets CE, UL, and CUL standards and is suitable for a wide variety of applications including water/wastewater treatment systems, reverse osmosis, deionisation, media filtration, chemical manufacturing/addition, air/fume scrubbers, cooling towers, metal and plastic finishing, aquaculture/aquarium, and pool and spa.

Also new at WEFTEC is the new Signet 3-0486-D Profibus concentrator communication protocol.

This device allows users to connect multiple GF Signet sensors, GF actuated valves, and other products to their automation system, thereby reducing wires, cables, set-up time, and maintenance.

The device meets UL, CSA and IEC61010 safety approvals, has passed the EU and FCC requirements for EMI and EMC, and is certified by Profibus International.

The Profibus Concentrator can interface six sensors, plus an additional 4-20 mA current loop input and output channel with proportionally controlled actuated valves or other 4-20 mA devices.
