The Condition Monitoring Interface Module CSI-B-2 is another element in the HYDAC Condition Monitoring concept which connects the sensor level with the interpretation level.

It is an all-purpose electronic unit for converting the HSI signal from HYDAC SMART sensors into a standardized PC signal.

Using the HYDAC “CMWIN” PC software, it is possible to read the data and measured values of the connected SMART sensors directly.

The long-term memory can also be read, as well as making adjustments and setting parameters directly on the connected sensor (the setting options depend on the particular sensor).

The HSI signal can be converted either into an RS 232 or an RS 485 signal. The CSI-B-2 can be connected to any PC via the RS 232 interface (and possibly an additional standard RS 232-USB adapter*).

The RS 485 interface and appropriate additional coupling modules can also be used to connect to higher-level control and/ or bus systems.
