MTL SUM5 reduces the number of marshalling components by 65% compared to a standard solution. One MTL SUM5 universal ADIO isolator module supports the functionality provided by 20 different MTL4500 single channel modules, while the configurable parameters enable support for an even wider range of applications. The marshalling solution provides comprehensive diagnostics, notifying the process managers when action is required. It also features LED indicators for power, function and status, which simplifies commissioning and troubleshooting. The MTL SUM5 modules are designed for both cabinet mounting in the control room, or field mounting. They are designed for ambient operating temperatures from –40 to +70°C and for mounting in a Zone 2 hazardous area, thus providing reliable operation in remote locations.
The marshalling components have a width of 10 mm, which together with the options of mounting two or three columns in each side of a standard 800m cabinet, delivers the highest packing density of 512 or 768 I/O channels per cabinet. This reduces the number of cabinets required, which delivers savings on cabinet hardware, installation, weight. Furthermore, a footprint of 3m2 of control room space per cabinet is eliminated.
Standardizing on one cabinet simplifies procurement, inventory management and documentation significantly. With fewer cabinets to install, process managers can reduce costs associated with installation, commissioning, start-up and maintenance further.
“Project managers and engineers also have the benefit of being able to specify cabinets, associated power management equipment and accessories from Eaton as a single source, which has additional procurement advantages,” said Roger Highton.
MTL SUM5 is designed for ATEX, IECEx and North American certification requirements to ensure safety of the plant and employees, and therefore provides peace of mind to process managers. Eaton has over 40 years’ experience in harsh industrial environments and its MTL products are reliable and trusted for hazardous areas. For further information visit: www.eaton.com/mtlsum5.
