Engineered for demanding industrial applications, NET Concentrator System (NCS) from Moore Industries-International provides real-time process control and distributed I/O gateway between the field and a DCS, PLC or PC-based control strategy. It has the ability to handle current (4-20 mA, 0-20 mA), voltage (0-5 V, 1-5 V, and -10 V to 10 V), sensor (RTD and thermocouple), direct millivolt (-50 to 1,000 mV), 0-4,000 ohm, potentiometer, and discrete input signals. It also provides current, voltage, discrete, and relay control outputs.

The modular architecture of NCS can be changed and expanded at any time. Used in place of hard-wired methods, NCS claims time and cost savings by sending just a few, or hundreds, of process signals on one low-cost data link using either Ethernet or Modbus RTU communications. NCS can be accessed via the Web using Internet Explorer, allowing a process strategy located anywhere in the world to be securely configured, monitored, and controlled from a PC located anywhere else. A DIN-rail-mount metal enclosure protects the unit from RFI/EMI, vibration, and shock and is completely channel-to-channel signal isolated. www.miinet.com
