Vortex

Vortex is available in four formats:
Wall mounted (Vortex)
19" rack mounted (Vortex rack)
Panel mounted (Vortex panel) or
Exd Flameproof (Vortex FP)

Vortex Rack & Panel comprise just the essential input, output and controller modules mounted on a DIN rail. An optional display module is available in panel-mounting and 19" Rack formats. This configuration is ideal for incorporation into a variety of specialist enclosures, such as 19" format or those with high ingress protection. Other standard features include RS-485 Modbus communications for remote non-intrusive calibration and configuration.

Channels and display

  • 1 to 12 channels (including 3 for fire) - up to 12 devices can be monitored by reviewing just one control panel, saving time and manpower
  • Each channel has 1 fault level and 3 alarm levels which can be combined in any pattern to trigger up to 32 output relays - flexibility built in, initially configured to suit your operational needs, then channels/alarms are easily customised by you if requirements change
  • Can be factory set to your requirements. Then when in situ, can easily be configured to suit your needs using Vortex PC software
  • Push buttons on front display - day-to-day operations are easily undertaken
  • LED display panel lights - faults are easily seen and whole system can be checked at a glance

Installation and maintenance

  • Modbus compatability - no extensive cabling required; cable connections within the unit are easy
  • Space within units for access to cable terminals
  • Uses industry standard communication links - simple to integrate into existing control systems
  • Any adjustments are performed electronically - minimal maintenance and no drift from adjustable potentiometers
  • Separate zones can be individually inhibited - you can work on specific areas without affecting the rest of the system
  • Modular construction - replacement parts if required, which plug straight in

Compliance and reliability

  • Validated to IEC 61508 (SIL 1) - demonstrates system dependability
  • System monitors relays continuously - coil faults are identified immediately without input from you
  • Internal battery pack* - power outs are not a problem. Internal battery pack continuously monitored for change levels and connection. System is operational at all times
