The FPS-COM-PLUS VA R-C is a portable battery powered voice amplifier unit with the ability to attach an intrinsically safe radio.
The equipment consist of four printed circuit boards (PCBs):
Battery_Board PCBFPS Microphone PCBFPS COM PLUS PCBRadio Male PCB
Intrinsic safety is assured by limitation of voltage, current and power, limitation of capacitance and inductance and infallible segregation and use of specified batteries.
The enclosure is made of a moulded plastic casing. The casing includes a hinged lid which provide access to the battery compartment.
The enclosure provides a degree of protection of at least IP20.
The battery compartment provides a degree of protection of at least IP6X
The FPS-COM-PLUS VA R-C maybe powered by either two Duracell Plus MN2400 or Duracell Procell MN2400 1.5 V AAA alkaline-manganese cells.
The FPS-COM-PLUS VA R-C maybe connected to an intrinsically safe radio compatible with the following input parameters:
Ui = 10 VIi = 3 A Ci = 220 nFPi = 7.5 W Li = 1 µH
Ambient temperature in T4/T130˚C environment: -30°C ≤ Ta ≤ 60°CAmbient temperature in T5/T95˚C environment: -30°C ≤ Ta ≤ 40°CThe batteries must only be replaced with either:
Duracell Plus MN2400Duracell Procell MN2400
The batteries must only be changed in non hazardous area.
Equipment assessed for use within explosive dust environments, additional markings applied to product:
