MTL offers the best choice in DIN-rail and backplane mounting isolators to meet the requirements of modern systems.The DIN-rail mounting isolator ranges provide a wide choice of functions with high accuracy and reliability, while the backplane mounting products are established as the leading IS system interface with solutions for all the major DCS companies.
The NEW MTL4500 /4600 Series is the latest generation of backplane mounting products, building upon the heritage of MTL4000 /5000 and introducing many key application benefits.
The NEW MTL5500 Series launches a new industry standard for DIN rail mounting products, ideally suited to a wide variety of interface tasks for process instrumentation.
Improving upon the widely adopted, enormously successful, "industry standard" MTL4000 Series was a big challenge but the innovative MTL4500 Series includes several new features for backplane mounting isolating interfaces. This new family easily integrates with the I/O equipment of all major instrumentation and DCS suppliers in the same secure manner as its predecessor.
Building on the base of MTL4500 series solutions, the MTL4600 offers a high level of signal isolation for installations where multiple loops on a common connection are not desirable.
Signal isolation provides excellent protection against surges, common faults and noisy environments. It also eliminates the risk of earth loops between different areas of the plant, which, if not isolated, can
cause significant errors or failures under fault conditions.
MTL4600 isolators are fully compatible with all existing backplanes used with MTL4500 series and many control systems. The form factor and signal types offer the user a common approach for both IS and non-IS signals.
The MTL5500 Series modules are versatile yet simple to apply; use the latest technology and yet are well proven.
These contrasting attributes stem from the progression of MTL's expertise in the design and manufacture of isolators for intrinsic safety and the application of innovative technology to achieve the required separation and segregation of the circuits.
The MTL5500 (DIN-rail mounting) and MTL4500 (backplane mounting) isolators share a common design, differing only in the mechanical mounting and connection methods.
Many modules in the MTL5000 range have now been superceded by their equivalent in the new MTL5500 series. For new applications the MTL5500 modules are recommended, these offer all the benefits of greater efficiency, new multichannel modules and new functionality.
A number of the products in the MTL5000 series will continue to provide key functionality as part of MTL's DIN rail isolator range.
For customers wishing to migrate to the MTL5500 series, a comprehensive list of module comparisons has been produced to assist the process.
MTL2000 Series isolators are DIN-rail or surface mounting devices that are mechanically compatible with the earlier MTL3000 Series units. The series includes: IS relays for bringing back status or command signals from switches or proximity detectors and an IS relay to switch hazardous-area loads.
230Vac or 115Vac supply
250V input/output power supply isolation
No high-integrity earth required
Broken line and earth fault protection
MTL Configuration Tools and Software
The PCS45/PCL45USB configurator allows MTL converters to be configured from a standard PC running a Microsoft® Windows® operating system. It comprises PC software, provided on a CD (PCS45), and an ATEX certified interfacing link (PCL45USB). Converters can be configured from the safe area, while on-line, and configurations can be saved to disk and printed out when required. It is suitable for use with MTL4000, MTL4500, MTL5000 and MTL5500 series products.
MTL- E Series is a range of high quality galvanic isolators, including some non-IS models, in 19-inch Eurocard format. All MTL Eurocard interface devices conform to the DIN41494 Eurocard standard and also to NAMUR EMC standards. The IS versions are ATEX, PTB or TÜV certified to CENELEC standards. The Eurocard range provides all common functions, including HART® compatibility, so that most installations can be designed easily around the 19-inch cards. They operate with a 24V ac/dc supply or are loop powered. * High quality galvanic isolators, including some non-is models, designed to DIN 41494 Eurocard standard.
Wide choice of input/output options.
Three-port isolation–input, output and power supply isolated from each other.
24V ac/dc supply or loop powered.
High transfer accuracy.
