Product details
This BA484DF-F FOUNDATION™ fieldbus display instrument can display up to eight fieldbus process variables on a 86.5mm x 45mm screen.

Up to eight fieldbus variables may be displayed at the same time on one of eleven standard display screen formats, together with units of measurement and tag information. The operator can select the displayed screen via the front panel push-buttons, or these buttons may be disabled.

This field mounting model is housed in a robust IP66 glass reinforced polyester (GRP) enclosure with a toughened glass window that may be surface mounted, or pipe mounted using one of the accessory kits.

The fieldbus display can be supplied with six isolated alarm outputs, each of which may be linked to any of the displayed fieldbus variables. Configuration and alarm setpoints are entered via the front panel push-buttons which may be protected by a security code.
