The Ultra SlimPak G118 is a DIN rail mount, RTD input limit alarm with dual setpoints and two contact closure outputs. The field configurable input and alarm functions offer flexible setpoint capability. There are up to eight temperature ranges available for each RTD type to ensure accuracy and maximize setpoint resolution.
The G118 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 (0.25 to 5% of full scale input) for each setpoint and a flexible DC power supply which accepts any voltage between 9 and 30VDC.
The G118 is equipped with three front panel LEDs. The first is a dual function LED labeled IN (input). This green LED indicates line power and input signal status. Active DC power is indicated by an illuminated LED. If this LED is off, check DC power and wiring connection. If the input signal is more than 110% of full scale, the LED will flash at 8 Hz. Below -10%, the flash rate is 4 Hz.
Two red LEDs indicate the relay state for each setpoint. An illuminated red LED indicates the tripped condition.
The G118 is equipped with two SPDT (form C) relays, rated at 120VAC or 28VDC at 5 amperes. Each of these relays is independently controlled by the field configurable setpoint and deadband.
The field configurable G118 limit alarm setpoints can be configured for HI or LO, failsafe or non-failsafe operation. Each of the setpoints has a respective HI or LO deadband. In a tripped condition, the setpoint is exceeded and the appropriate red LED will illuminate. The trip will reset only when the process falls below the HI deadband or rises above the LO deadband (see Figure 1). For proper deadband operation the HI setpoint must always be set above the LO setpoint.
In failsafe operation, the relay is energized when the process is below the HI setpoint or above the LO setpoint (opposite for nonfailsafe). In the failsafe mode, a power failure results in an alarm state output.
