control power transformer when URTDM is located in motor starter assembly or
appropriate 120 volt circuit when located at the motor
4. The URTDM shall be suitable for location at the MPR or at the motor as indicated on
the drawings. The URTDM module, when located at the motor, shall be capable of
transmitting all temperature information to the MPR over 3 conductor shielded cable up
to a maximum distance of 2,000 feet or via a fiber-optic link up to a maximum distance
of 400 feet. The Contractor shall provide shielded cable or fiber-optic link, as shown on
the drawings, or as recommended by the manufacturer
5. The URTDM shall be suitable for operating temperatures from 0 to 70 degrees C and
suitable for humidity of 0 to 95% RH non-condensing. It shall be in a NEMA 1 enclosure
approximately 8 inches by 5 inches by 2 inches without communication module
6. When the drawings indicate the URTDM is utilized for monitoring temperature only,
without an MPR device, a communication module shall be supplied which jacks into the
URTDM and shall be capable of communicating temperature information up to 10,000
feet over a twisted pair network to a remote master control station

ANALOG INPUT MODULE


A. Where indicated on the drawings, provide an Analog Input Module (AIM), to monitor
customer utility information
B. The AIM shall monitor signals from primary measurement devices such as gas and water
flow transducers, pulse output contacts, BTU and steam flow meters, temperature and
pressure sensors, equipment run-time meters and other devices
C. The AIM shall be capable of monitoring 0-20 mA or 4-20 mA transducer signals, output
pulse counts and run-time hours. The device shall scale, identify units, perform BTU
calculations and track run-time hours within the unit
D. The AIM shall be equipped with (32) input channels and (2) output relays, which can be
controlled through the facilitys computer monitoring and control system
E. The unit shall be equipped with a 24 VA power supply for powering the unit, as well as the
digital inputs and 0-20 mA and 4-20 mA transducers. The power supply shall have a 100240 Vac (auto-ranging) input, and a 24 Vdc output
F. The AIM shall have a built-in communications card, capable of communicating via a twisted
pair network. Multiple AIM devices shall be capable of being daisy-chained together on the
network
G. The AIM shall be housed in a NEMA 1 enclosure, suitable for wall mounting
