Kryo-Base modules - network connectivity for all lab sensors
Kryo-Base modules are used to connect measurement devices fitted to laboratory equipment such as freezers, liquid nitrogen storage vessels, incubators etc. with a monitoring system such as Kryo-Assure or Data-Later.
Each Kryo-Base module has a number of input connections, to accommodate various devices - such as such as temperature measurement probes, level, humidity etc - and a single Ethernet connection terminal, which enables the data from the module to be shared across a local area network (LAN).The Assure24seven system takes advantage of high-integrity, low-cost CAT 5 LAN cabling and there are several Kryo-Base modules in the range, each designed to match particular types of transducer interface.
Kryo-Base-Status modules have the capacity for up to 6 digital inputs and 6 digital outputs which take the form of voltage-free contacts. Using this module door and lid switches, for instance, can easily be monitored and the Assure24seven system will retain a record of which rooms, freezers, vessels or even containers, have been accessed - how many times, for how long, and on which date etc.Because of the open nature of the Assure24seven system, and the ease with which users can scale and configure new variables, modules can be added at any future date, without the need for specialist programmers or expensive call-outs.Virtually any physical parameter, whether digital or analogue, can be measured and connected to the Assure24seven system, by means of these modules. For instance... * Temperature * Humidity * Pressure * liquid level * Oxygen gas concentration * Carbon Dioxide gas concentration * Particle Density etc.
The Kryo-Base-Analogue module accommodates up to 8 analogue voltage or current inputs - for instance 4-20mA signals - and from a wide variety of sources such as temperature, humidity, pressure, liquid level, gas concentration etc.
A Kryo-Base-PRT7 module, for instance, can accommodate up to seven separate Pt100 3-wire temperature measurement probes. With up to seven devices connected to a single module, a very cost-effective solution is provided. The modules automatically detect broken sensor wires and store maximum and minimum values measured over a given time.
