556 Converter

Dual Channel Optical Converter

The dual channel converter 556 provides continuous inline, real-time measurement and control of turbidity. The customer’s specific factory calibration of the converter can be configured in ppm (DE), FTU or EBC. Combined with an optek TF56-N scattered light sensor the 556 converter is a cost-saving measuring system, providing reliable process measurements.

Used For

  • For NIR Absorption sensors (Turbidity)
    • Turbidity (EN ISO 27027)
      • ppm (DE)
      • FTU
      • EBC

The 556 converter provides continuous inline, real-time measurement and control of concentrations or turbidity in a variety of industrial processes. With four fixed measuring ranges and one variable measuring range, the converters can be set to match your specific process parameters. The 3-digit LED indicator displays the percentage of the selected measuring range. Two independent set points and one mA output are provided for alarms and real-time process monitoring when wired to the plant's process control system. An additional failsafe relay output is built in for remote sensing of lamp or power failure.
