FMP-2 - A Two channel processing and displaying unit The second generation of ARNOLD‘s Moisture Processing Unit „FMP“ is now available in a two channel version. Up to two independent moisture sensors can be connected to the FMP-2. More, up to two independent PT100-temperature sensors can be connected, mounted in the moisture sensors or external. All cables are connected to the back plane of FMP-2 by the help of pluggable clamping bars. Standardly, the FMP-2 provides an USB-interface and a galvanically isolated RS485-interface, which allows the control of the FMP-2 and transmission of signals over very long distances (RS485).

Product description

The operation of FMP-2 is intuitive and simple and is supported by a big touch screen and high-resolution graphic display (LCD). Thanks to the use of modern SMD-technology the device is very compact.
Fife different calibration curves per channel with up to 40 calibration points each can be programmed by the help of an intuitive teach-in procedure. A linear interpolation is used between the calibration points.
All calibration points are comfortably stored and edited, either by entering the data by teach in of the calibration points, by calibration table or by directly moving the points in the displayed calibration curve on screen.
The moisture signal can also be displayed in the “Show Measure Curve“ mode, like with the well known transient recorder, which can be very helpful during the first steps, when the FMP-2 is put into operation and during the calibration procedure.
Additionally, in „manual setting“ mode an control signal can be set and emitted by the output of FMP-2, to simulate certain moisture signals.
The FMP-2 is standardly emitting 0-10V, optionally 0-20mA or 4-20mA. The FMP-2 can communicate with the following process control also via the built-in USB- and RS485-interfaces.
