Moore’s NCS is ready for any hazard

Moore Industries’ NET Concentrator System has achieved Factory Mutual (FM) approval as a Non-Incendive Apparatus (multiple device system), allowing the smart and rugged I/O system to be used in Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C & D Hazardous “Classified” Areas in both the U.S. and Canada.

This industrial I/O system is being used for data acquisition, process control, machine control, and as a communications concentrator in the most difficult environmental conditions, ranging from operation in unheated and un-air-conditioned cabinets in Canada to desert installations in Saudi Arabia and Australia. The NCS is rated for operation in temperatures ranging from -40°F to +185°F (-40°C to +85°C), and is protected against RFI/EMI, high vibration, and shock common in heavy industrial applications.

With FM safety certifications acquired in accordance with the applicable U.S. and Canadian standards, the NCS can now be used in both General /Ordinary (safe) Locations and in Hazardous Locations (potentially explosive atmospheres) classified as Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C & D. This makes it possible for the NCS to be used in chemical plants, refineries, offshore rigs and pharmaceutical plants where potentially explosive gases and liquids may be present.

For process control, the NCS has the ability to act as a PID loop controller with simple cascade, split action, and inverse capabilities, plus complex math functions. For machine control, it has sequential control language programmability based on the IEC 61131-3 Programmable Controller Languages including Ladder, Function Block Diagram, Structure Text, Sequential Flow Charts, and Instruction List.
