The LANCIER Monitoring Rail-Module-Bus is a modular and robust sensor system.
Several measuring modules are mounted on a DIN rail and are directly connected to one another by means of plug-in contacts. The supply voltage, data analysis and control panel as well as their transmission to the remote measuring stations are carried out via the RM-Basic module.
The sensor RM-Iso is a measurement and monitoring device for insulation and loop resistance as well as capacitance in the LANCIER Monitoring RM bus.
A free pair in the cable that is to be monitored serves as a measuring loop, which is continuously measured by the RM-Iso module. The alarm threshold for insulation and loop resistance can be programmed with no restriction using an integrated keypad and the basic module’s display. All settings are saved in an internal EEPROM memory to prevent losses.
The RM-module calculates the remaining length of the measurement loop in case of line interruption automatically if capacitance measurement is activated. This allows for a quick cable fault location due to construction works, cable theft or sabotage.
To troubleshoot, additional adjacent external voltages can potentially be measured and the polarity of the measurement voltage can be reversed.
For the remote alarm system the RM-Iso module possesses built-in dry output contacts. Additionally it can be connected to the LANCIER Tx-Bus, a Can-Bus or a telecontrol system via Modbus.
