The Fairchild T5420 Digital-Pneumatic Transducer featuers a fail safe High or Low, which will return the output to 3 psig for Direct Acting Mode or to 15 psig for Reverse Acting Mode if the power is lost, regardless of the logic selected. It is compatible with most digital systems using TTL and CMOS Logic.
The Fairchild T5420 Transducer is a digitalpneumatic device that provides a pneumatic output signal controlled by 8 bit digital data instructions from a central control location. This device is made up of three sections, the Signal Conversion Section, Pneumatic Section and Booster Section.
The Signal Conversion Section (PC Board) accepts an 8 bit parallel wired digital signal. Full scale output is divided into 255 parts and the output level is based on the logic state (high or low) of the 8 bits. An enable line allows the unit to accept information from a parallel bus. The digital input signal is converted to an analog signal. The signal is then applied to a Coil which creates a magnetic force that moves a Flexure Arm.
The Pneumatic Section operates as a force balance system. A Sapphire Ball floats inside a Nozzle and controls the output pressure by exhausting air supplied through an Orifice.
The Booster Section amplifies the output pressure of the Pneumatic Section.
