Moore Industries won the Control Engineering 2017 Engineers’ Choice Awards for Process Safety, Intrinsic Safety category with its innovative SPA2IS programmable alarm product. The award winning product is part of the company's extensive line of process controllers, alarms, and related devices.

The SPA2IS provides a versatile range of functionality and accepts inputs that include current, voltage, RTD, thermocouple, resistance, and millivolt signals. The device features universal power input that allows operation on AC or DC sources. The intrinsically safe field connections negate the need for IS barriers, plus the integrated transmitter excitation can be used to power an intrinsically safe loop.

There is much more to learn about the Moore Industries SPA2IS. A datasheet for the unit is provided below.
