Declaration of Conformity – iMAC Controller

In May 2018, the iMAC / iMAC2 Controller operating system firmware was modified to extend the iMAC Module Serial Number range. These changes occurred in iMAC Controller Operating System Firmware v4.0 (O.S. v4.0). Marcus Punch Pty Ltd was engaged to perform a safety integrity verification of these changes. iMAC2 report AMP-15-01-A1 Revision 3 (including Revisions 4 & 5) and iMAC report AMP-11-05-A2 Revision 2 (including Revisions 3 & 4) assessed these changes to be in compliance with the requirements pertaining to software modification and as a result the existing safety metrics (PFD and PFH) for the iMAC Controller, iMAC2 Controller, 2-wire and 3-wire iMAC systems remain unchanged.

User Manual – iMAC Module Programming Procedure

iMAC Modules typically need to be programmed (configured) when connected to the iMAC L1 Fieldbus communication line. The iMAC Controller is used to program the modules. Each module (data register) must be programmed with an address and up to three other parameters. The parameters are used to control how a particular module behaves.

Safety Alert: ISA Burden

The user manual for the programmable ISA (Part # 121603) depicts a 1.9V DC voltage drop across the ISA when used in 4-20mA mode.

The user manual should state a voltage drop range of 1.9V – 4.3V DC.
