Multivariable Trip Switch
for Smart Transmitters
The Multivariable Trip Switch (MTS) supplies a
stand-alone safety shutdown solution that can range from simple shut-off of a pump or motor to part of a larger system solution.
MTS works with Honeywell Smartline® field instruments or with any analog instrument to provide a configurable
high or low trip. A second relay and one analog repeat output are optionally available.
The MTS is compatible with all Honeywell Smartline transmitters, including the SMV 3000 Smart
Multivariable Transmitters, ST 3000 Smart Pressure Transmitters, SCM 3000 Smart Coriolis Mass Flowmeters,
STT 3000 Smart Temperature Transmitters, the SGC 3000 Smart Gas Chromatograph, and MagneW 3000 and
MagneW 3000 PLUS Smart Flowmeters. In addition, MTS works with any of Honeywell's DE control system interfaces
(STDC, STI-MV). Honeywell's hand-held communicator, the SFC Smart Field Communicator, and the PC-based SCT 3000 Smart
Configuration Toolkit may be used with no disturbances to the analog repeat output or status.
The MTS may be installed without disconnecting or disrupting the existing installation and may be used
stand-alone or as an addition to an integrated control solution.

- Allows elimination of Hi/Hi and Lo/Lo alarms.
SAFETY SYSTEM ADVANTAGES
MTS provides a cost effective zero-error digital shutdown solution. The independent "smart status" output enhances the
speed safety shutdown systems are able to respond by tracking the transmitter's status. "Smart status" also eliminates the need
for separate Hi/Hi and Lo/Lo trips. The MTS fully supports forced I/O manual mode for validation testing of safety
shutdown system. Multiple MTS s may be used with the same transmitter.
The MTS design
has taken into consideration the emerging requirements of IEC 1508.
HOW IT WORKS
MTS monitors a single transmitter's digital PV/SV or analog
signal and compares its value with the configured trip point. With a DE signal, MTS also provides an independent "smart
status" derived from the digital transmitter's status and MTS module status. The "smart status" may be OR'ed with the
PV/SV trip state.
The compact module design is suitable for DIN rail mounting and
is intended to be mounted within an appropriate enclosure. MTS operates from a single +24VDC source and is internally
