Intrinsic Safety Isolator

July 26, 2007
The HiC family of intrinsic safety isolators provide a single channel of isolated power in a 12.

The HiC family of intrinsic safety isolators provide a single channel of isolated power in a 12.5-mm wide enclosure with only 0.8-W dissipation to keep cabinets cool while increasing module life and system reliability. The HiC modules reduce cabinet space requirements by more than 30% over the HiD 18-mm-wide devices. Modules fasten onto eight or 16-slot termination boards without the need for tools or wiring. A robust terminal system ensures that the channels are reliably connected. Systems are easily expanded with a Hart Communication Board and Fault Indication Board. The Termination Boards have Hart access that lets users diagnose and remotely access field devices at any time through the Communication Board. The Fault Indication Board allows for collective error messaging.
