Multi Function Transducer – MFT

  • Multi Function Transducer MFT has versatile capabilities for electrical parameter monitoring and communication. It measures all electrical parameters including Voltage, Current, PF, Power and Energy.
  • All essential measuring values can be programmed to the output and are available through Modbus / Modnet communication, the connection of the input signals can be freely programmed for 3 phase 3 wire as well as 3 phase 4 wire, for both balanced and unbalanced load. It provides RS485 port & RJ45 Port supporting Modbus-RTU protocol & Modnet protocol Repectively. MFT has isolated interface between device’ internal electronics and field to ensure personal safety.
  • High sampling rate and true RMS measurement of Multi Function Transducer gives accurate reading under all harmonic conditions. measured electrical parameters in MFT can be converted to equivalent current or voltage signals. These signals can be flexibly assigned to four analog o/p channels.Any parameter can be assigned to any channel as well as single parameter can be assigned to multiple channels.
