Sensor Module with Adjustable Trip Alarms and Display

The HS-510 dual trip amplifier module is ideal for operation with the Hansford Sensors range of industrial accelerometers in situations where vibration levels need to be monitored, tripping alarm relays at predetermined points.

The HS-510 will accept inputs of 0 to 10 Volts DC or 4-20mA, which can be direct from the HS-420 industrial accelerometers or via other Hansford Sensor modules such as the HS-530, HS-535, HS-556 or HS-557.

The front panel digital display allows the operator to set the trip values which when exceeded operate the internal dual relays, the contacts of which can be used for visual or audible alarms or to control or shutdown machinery or process plant. This application provides the engineer with a system offering full protection for valuable plant and machinery.

The relays are rated 3 Amps at 240 Volts AC in normally open or closed format, in latching or non-latching modes.

The compact HS-510 module measures only 114.5 x 99 x 22.5mm (H x D x W) and uses DIN rail mounting, ideal for constructing multi-channel systems into robust industrial enclosures.

Hansford Sensors Ltd offer a wide choice of HS-500 sensor conditioning modules together with a variety of industrial accelerometers to suit all types of applications across industry where vibration monitoring is used as an effective way to protect all rotating machinery and avoid costly shut-downs.
