EATON Crouse-Hinds series MTL products

MTL1000 range signal conditioners


With process plants now spread over

wide areas and the demand for more

information, the transfer of electrical

signals present many challenges.

High power devices mixed in with

low level signal transfer generates an

environment which has an adverse

effect on the ability to control and

measure the processes.

Signal conditioning makes a major

contribution to resolving issues such

as varying grounding potentials,

reducing signal noise and eliminating

earth loops. It also protects sensitive

control equipment from dangerous

voltages. All these benefits add up to

reduced down time, fewer failures,

greater product yield and significant

cost savings.

Signal conversion to a common type

allows the use of standard interface

and control cards.

Many different signals from sensors

such as thermocouples, RTDs, position

monitors, pressure and flow monitors

all need to be handled. Converting

them to the same signal type allows

the control system card choice to be

simplified and fewer installed. Higher

level signals are also less susceptible

to noise and interference so by limiting

the distances the low level signals

travel reduces these effects.

Eaton is already well known for its

hazardous area MTL intrinsic safety

and MTL process IO portfolio, but

signal conditioning is used in many

additional industrial processes.

We have applied our expertise to the

MTL1000 range of signal conditioning

isolators, making Eaton your first choice

as a trusted, single source of supply for

all of your interface requirements.
