SELF-DIAGNOSTICS AND BUILT-IN TESTING

Chameleon PAC modules offer a variety of on-board self-diagnostic capabilities. Included is the unique ability for analog outputs to monitor the connection to actuators for loss of signal and unexpected impedance changes. All diagnostic information is available to the programmer to facilitate status transmission over a network and initiate automatic switchover and/or automatic reduced-capability operating mode.

INTEGRATED DATA LOGGING

Chameleon modules can log any number of user-selected signals at user-configured time-intervals.

They can record data

continuously (loop recorder mode) or for “snapshots” triggered by user-defined events or record signals both before and after the triggering event occurs. Data can subsequently or network interface.

ENCLOSURELESS SOLUTION REDUCES INSTALLATION COSTS

The Chameleon PAC provides an enclosureless solution: it doesn’t require the use of third-party enclosures for environmental protection. Enclosureless solutions reduce space requirements and equipment weight, and eliminate the added costs associated with

hardware such as switches, buttons, alarms, key-locks, etc., to be seamlessly incorporated into the Chameleon platform. These fully customizable modules are also equipped with terminal connectors and can serve as convenient junction boxes.

Chameleon was designed with an emphasis on ease of assembly,

installation, and maintenance.
