The strain gauge module HE 5861 records the measured value of load cells, strain gauges or of melt pressure sensors.
In case of service, the module can be replaced quickly and easily during operation (hot swap). The process values are shown on an LCD display. Strain gauges are evaluated with a resolution of 23 bits. An analog universal output (14 bit) with parallel current and voltage signal and two relays for limit value monitoring are available.
The areas supply voltage, fieldbus, logic and inputs are galvanically isolated from each other. In the event of an error, the modules operate with previously defined error values to ensure safe process control (fail safe). Configuration and parameterization of the transmitter can be done via the SmartPort interface.
