AMCI has released the two-channel 7252 LDT/MDT interface card, which it claims is the only Linear Displacement Transducer (LDT) interface module for Allen-Bradley’s Control Logix PLC.

The card can directly interface with two magnetostrictive sensors with PWM, control pulse, or start/stop signals.

Features include latch inputs, onboard diagnostics and ease of installation and programming.

Utilising Rockwell Automation licensed technology ensures the AMCI 7252 LDT interface module is 100 per cent compatible with the 1756 Control Logix PLC.

According to AMCI, the module is simple to install and also a direct interface to popular LDT sensors, including those from MTS Temposonics, Balluff, Gemco and Turck.

If required, the module can use the co-ordinated system time (CST) to generate an interpolated position data value for high-speed applications, and latch inputs are available for capturing the position data value.

Because constant and consistent LDT positional readings are essential over an extended period of time, the 7252 interface module incorporates onboard diagnostics to monitor and report errors, to ensure that readings are reliable.

AMCI claims that customers working in markets such as forestry and wastewater control will appreciate the module’s latch inputs for capturing the position data value.

For liquid level-sensing applications, accurate level measurement is vital to ensure that all materials are accounted for before, during and after batches are run.

Other applications that would benefit from the module’s simple installation and ease of use are hydraulic stamping press, plastic injection moulding and slitting.

The 7252 interface module’s ability to interface with existing sensors makes it a cost-effective approach to system upgrades.

AMCI offers a wide variety of sensor interface modules that provide 100 per cent compatibility with today’s most popular PLC platforms.
