Detailed Product Description

MTL4840 Series communicate with, configure and monitor HART® smart devices in safe and hazardous areas

I. SIL3 rating

II. Connect up to 7936 loops to a single PC

III. LED indication of loop being scanned

The MTL4840 HART® connection system provides a simple interface between smart devices in the field and HART® instrument management software run on a PC.

The system is based on 16-channel modularity to provide a compact, easily configurable and expandable system. Using a standard RS485 serial link, up to 7936 individual HART® devices can be connected to a single workstation.

For the optimum solution, choose from a range of general purpose and IS termination boards. For maximum flexibility the BPHM64 HART® backplane locates an MTL4841 communications module and up to four MTL4842 interface modules. General purpose HART® connection units and IS backplanes are also available, each fitted with an interface cable for connection to the BPHM64 HART® backplane.

MTL4841 and MTL4842 modules can also be located on HMU16 termination boards for general purpose applications or on BPMH16 / BPMH16U / BPSH16 / BPSH16-32 backplanes for IS isolator


The DIN-rail mounting HCU16 and HCU16AOHART® connect to 16 general purpose field instruments while maintaining channel to channel isolation. Resistor conditioning options are compatible with all I/O cards. It allows pass-through connections for transmitter power supply, input signal and common.

I. Easily scalable modular system

II. Compact, ideal for new projects and upgrades

III. Channel to channel isolation option

The HCU16AO unit includes HART® filters for I/O cards incompatible with HART® signals. BPMH16/BPMH16U/BPSH16/BPSH16-32 backplanes with MTL4840 HART® modules fitted, connect either 16 or 32 IS field instruments. Adapter cards are available for the BPMH16U for easy integration to I/O cards and users have a choice of a DIN-rail mounting option.

Numerous features may be included in the connection units and backplanes, as required.

Channel to channel isolation; resistors where required for HART® signal conditioning; and HART® filters for analogue systems where the output signal interferes with HART® data or becomes unstable with the presence of the HART® signal.

Customised backplanes and connection units are available to provide direct connection from DCS I/O cables, replacing the standard termination board.

MTL HART multiplexers are certified by BASEEFA as a safety related sub-system to IEC61508. See the SR Series Interfaces section of this catalogue.
