Analog Expansion Console

The C-50 Analog Expansion Console interfaces with the C-100 SmartBob Control Console to provide multiple 4-20mA outputs, enabling monitoring of multiple bins equipped with SmartBob2 or SmartBob TS-1 sensors from a single C-100 SmartBob Console. The C-50 Analog Expansion Console connects to the C-100 SmartBob Console via a dedicated RS-485 cable. Then, the C-100 SmartBob Console is connected via a daisy chained RS-485 network to monitor from 1 to 120 SmartBob sensors.

Both SmartBob2 or SmartBob-TS1 sensors and the C-50 Analog Expansion Console are programmed and controlled by the C-100 SmartBob Control Console. Wiring and installation costs are considerably reduced by utilizing a single cable RS-485 network and locating the C-50 Analog Expansion Console close to the location the 4-20 mA outputs are hardwired.
