        How do you calculate the dB loss for a Remote I/O system?

        How to calculate the dB loss for a remote I/O network.

        Product Line:
        Remote I/O



        RG6 is .36db/100 feet
        RG11 is .17db/100 feet

        To calculate maximum attenuation, add all sources of attenuation between the RIO
        head processor and a drop adapter; the total loss must not exceed 35 dB (32 dB for
        controllers without pre-amps). The maximum attenuation for the system is generally
        measured from the RIO processor node to the last drop adapter on the network. The
        last adapter usually represents the maximum loss of the entire cable system. There
        are exceptions however adapters near the end of the cable system with long drop
        cables may have greater attenuation.
        Maximum system attenuation at 1.544 Mhz can be calculated as follows:
        dB loss = TCA + DCA + TDA + (NOS x 6) + (NOT x 0.8)
        TCA = the trunk cable attenuation from the head to the end of the trunk
        DCA = the drop cable attenuation, generally at the last drop
        TDA = 14 dB, the tap drop attenuation
        NOS = the number of splitters in the system
        NOT = the number of taps between the last node and the head

        Note: The Quantum is obsolete and has been replaced by the M580, the M580 can run the Quantum remote I/O or can be upgraded to the x80 I/O that is Ethernet. For more information on this contact local Schneider office or distributor.  

        Can a 60 Hz rated Transformer be energized with 50 Hz source?

        Transformers rated for 60 Hz ONLY are sometimes chosen to be installed in a location that has a 50 Hz Distribution system. 

        Product Line:
        LV Transformers 

        Applies to MOST Transformers made by SquareD/Schneider Electric.  Exceptions are 9070 series Control Transformers and Export Model Transformers which are dual rated for 50Hz and 60Hz.

        Domestic (USA) power systems are rated 60 Hz.   Many other power systems in the world are rated at 50 Hz.

        A 60 Hz rated transformer can only be used on a 60 Hz system (with certain exceptions -- read further.) Whereas a 50 or 50/60 Hz rated transformer can be used on either a 50 or a 60 Hz rated system.
        Exception: If the energizing voltage does not exceed 83% of the transformers nominal voltage, the transformer can be used. Remember that transformers are simple ratio devices and the output will also be lower. Another important factor to remember is that the transformer`s capacity will also have to be derated at the same ratio of the applied voltage divided by the nominal voltage.

        Example: An EE30T3H, 30kVA 480 delta to 208Y/120 transformer 60 Hz, can be utilized on a 50 Hz system as long as the applied voltage does not exceed 50/60 or 5/6 of the nominal 480, or rather 400 volts. With 400 volts 50 Hz applied, the output voltage will be 400/480 * 208 = 173 volts line-to-line, and 100 volts line-to-neutral, or 173Y/100 50 Hz. As well, the capacity or kVA of the transformer will be 400/480 * 30 = 25kVA. Transformers cannot change frequency, thus frequency in = frequency out.
