The MTL4500 Series of modules and accessories is designed for use with process connected systems.
It consists of compact isolating interface modules mounted on backplanes, which carry safe-area
signals and power supplies. Hazardous-area circuits connect to the blue terminals on the modules.
Backplanes can be integrated into a user’s process system architecture or mounted in separate
The MTL4546 accepts a 4/20mA floating signal from a safe-area controller to drive a current/
pressure converter (or any other load up to 800Ω) in a hazardous area. For HART valve positioners,
the module also permits bi-directional transmission of digital communication signals so that the
device can be interrogated either from the operator station or by a hand-held communicator.
Process controllers with a readback facility can detect open or short circuits in the field wiring:
if these occur, the current taken into the terminals drops to a preset level. The MTL4546C and
MTL4546Y are identical to the MTL4546 except that they provide open circuit detection only (no

Each module has a multi-pin connector in its base that plugs into a matching connector on the backplane. This connector carries all appropriate safe-area circuits and power supplies. Additional multiway connectors, located at the front of the module, accept the wiring from the hazardous-area circuits. All connectors are keyed so that connections cannot be made the ‘wrong way round’. Status LEDs and configuration ports (where appropriate) are located on the front of the modules for easy access, and full dc isolation is provided between the input and output so that the modules are intrinsically safe without needing an earth.
MTL4500 series standard backplanes, with quick-release clip connectors, accommodate 4, 8, 16 or 24 modules. The backplane carries the safe-area signals and distributes dual-redundant 24V dc power supplies with three-point status monitoring. In applications where a number of 8- and 16-way backplanes are installed, the power supplies can be interconnected. Optional earth-rail kits are available for 8- and 16-way backplanes and tagging-strip kits are available for all backplanes.
