  • Application

    The RTA421 contactor is used to monitor and protect industrial processes. The unit has two independent relays which offers a number of cost-effective applications such as pump control in wastewater technology and level monitoring in containers. The quick setup feature allows for changes of limit values and the unit is particularly suited for use in plant and engineering applications as well as switching cabinets.

    Function

    The instrument evaluates current signals (0/4 to 20 mA) and voltage signals (0/2 to 10 V) and switches upon going over or under the predefined limit values. Both limit values are shown on the display. The bargraph displays the connected signal in percentages. A 2-digit bar code is available as an option to prevent entry of limit value.
