MTL4500/MTL5500 range
Machine Monitor Interfaces
Vibration Probes - MTL4531, MTL5531
Temperature Sensors - MTL 4582B, MTL5582B

1.1 Application and function
The MTL4531 and MTL5531 are single channel isolator modules which enable vibration sensors and
probes located in a hazardous area to be connected to monitoring systems in the safe area. For resistance
temperature detectors, rtds, the MTL4582B and MTL5582B module is a single channel isolator module
that repeats the resistance value from hazardous to safe area. The modules are also designed and assessed
according to IEC 61508 for use in safety instrumented systems up to SIL1, without hardware redundancy.
Higher integrity levels for a SIF can be achieved by hardware duplication, for example by using the modules in
a voting architecture.
The vibration modules are compatible with three-wire eddy-current probes and accelerometers or two-wire
current sensors. The RTD isolator is compatible with two, three or four-wire devices. There are configuration
switches to be set on the modules that define the type and arrangement of the connected sensors.
These modules are members of the MTL4500 and MTL5500 range of products.

1.2 Variant Description
Functionally the MTL4500 and MTL5500 modules are the same but differ in the following way:
 - the MTL4500 modules are designed for backplane mounted applications
 - the MTL5500 modules are designed for DIN rail mounting.
In both models the hazardous area field-wiring connections (terminals 1-3, and 4-6) are made through the
removable blue connectors on the top of the modules, but the safe area and power connections for the
MTL4531 modules are made through the connector on the base, while the MTL5531/MTL5582 uses the
removable grey connectors on the top and side of the module.
Note that the safe-area connection terminal numbers differ between the backplane and DIN-rail mounting
The specific models covered by this manual are:
 MTL4531 and MTL5531 vibration transducer interfaces
 MTL4582B and MTL5582B resistance isolators

Note: To avoid repetition, further use of MTLx531 in this document can be understood to include both DIN-rail
and backplane models. Individual model numbers will be used only where there is a need to distinguish them.

MTL4531 – MTL5531



The MTLx531 repeats a signal from a vibration sensor in a hazardous
area, providing an output for a monitoring system in the safe area.
The interface is compatible with 3-wire eddy-current probes and
accelerometers or 2-wire current sensors; the selection is made by a
switch on the side of the module.

MTL7700 range

The MTL7700 range follows closely in the footsteps of the MTL700 but as a DIN rail mounting barrier providing quick and easy installation without the need for special hardware. Removable terminals are used for ease of installation, maintenance and for providing a loop disconnect by simply unplugging the terminals from the side of the module. Wire entry is also angled to assist wiring within limited space enclosures. MTL7700 barriers clamp simply and securely onto standard T-section DIN rail, simultaneously making a reliable IS earth connection. For applications where field power is required for switch inputs or 2-wire transmitters, the MTL7700 range provides a bussed power feed facility. When used in conjunction with the MTL7798 power feed module the user has a fully protected, electronically fused supply to many barriers with no additional wiring required.
