Mean Sensing (i4CA, i4VA), DC (i4Dx) Transducers and i4XS Communications Interface
The iSTAT i400 range of Mean Sensing AC transducers, DC transducers and communications interface provide easy installation and commissioning as well as simple and economical monitoring and communications. The iSTAT i400 Mean Sensing and DC transducers are simple and compact offerings available to measure AC or DC circuits respectively for utility and industrial applications.
The self-powered, i400 Mean Sensing AC transducers (i4CA, i4VA) are used to measure current or voltage and provide an output analogue signal as an indication.
The iSTAT i400 DC measuring transducers monitor values such as DC Volts (i4DB), DC Current (i4DC), Tap Position (i4DA), Resistance (i4DF), and Temperature (Resistance Temperature Detector) (i4DG) and provides an analogue output or communications. The i400 i4Dx DC measuring transducers also provide Modbus serial communications for integration into monitoring systems.
The iSTAT i4XS communications interface provides a Serial to Ethernet interface allowing easy connection and integration of devices to a communications network and monitoring system.
Supply for the following models remain available:

i4CA Current Transducer
The i4CA measures and monitors single phase current in an electrical
power network and provides an analog DC output that can be used for
devices such as PLCs, PCs, microprocessor control, indicators, alarms
Current input can be connected via a corresponding current
transformer (with standard 1A or 5A output).
i4VA Voltage Transducer GE has discontinued sales of iSTAT i4VA. Please contact us to discuss alternatives.
The i4VA measures and monitors single phase voltage in an electrical power
network and provides an analog DC output that can be used for devices
such as PLCs, PCs, microprocessor control, indicators, alarms units etc.
Voltage input can be connected either directly to low voltage network
or shall be connected to network via a corresponding voltage
transformer (with standard 100V output).
i4Dx Digital DC Transducers
Economical simple monitoring of key values and setting of analog outputs or communications
Configurable using QDSP software
Standard Serial (RS232 or RS485) communications
Easy installation with compact size, DIN mountable with available universal power supply
iSTAT i4Dx DC Transducers (i4Dx)
The i4Dx DC measurement transducers have a variety of specific monitoring functions and applications for use in industrial or utility
applications to convert nonlinear resistance sensors (RTD – sensors) into DC current or DC voltage signal outputs.
iSTAT i4Dx transducers are customer configurable using GE iSTAT QDSP setup software and are supplied with Serial (RS232 or RS485)
communications to allow configuration of the transducer and communications of measurement values to a monitoring system. The
i4Dx transducers are compact and DIN mountable and are also provided with a standard AC auxiliary power supply with option of a universal
power supply for easy installation.
i4DA Tap Position Indicator
The i4DA indicates the tap position by measuring the resistance proportional to the actual tap position. It monitors up to 100 steps with
a minimum value of 30 Ohms per step, with a total resistance range of 100 to 500 k.
i4DB DC Voltage, i4DC Current
The i4DB voltage and i4DC current transducers measure DC voltage or current values respectively and convert them to proportional DC
GE has discontinued sales of iSTAT i4DF. Please contact us to discuss alternatives.
The i4DF transducer measures resistance values using 2, 3 or 4 wire connections and converts this to a proportional DC analogue value. The
measurement range can be 10 to 50 k Ohms or 100 to 500 k Ohms.
The i4DG transducer measures temperature using either Pt100, Pt1000, Ni100 RTD sensors and converts this to a proportional DC analogue
value. The externally supplied RTD sensors can be connected as 2, 3 or 4 wire. The measurement range can be -200°C to +850°C (Pt) or -608°C
to +250°C (Ni).
i4XS Communications Interface GE has discontinued sales of iSTAT i4XS. As an alternative, please refer to Multinet FE.
Serial RS232 or RS485 to Ethernet communications interface
Serial transmission rates from 1,200 to 115,200 bits per second
Easy installation with DIN rail mounting
Universal AC/DC auxiliary power supply
The i4XS connects devices with Serial (RS232 or RS485) ports to an ethernet network enabling
communications between devices and a monitoring or HMI system on a workstation.
The i4XS provides an Ethernet RJ45 10/100 BASE-T terminal and depending on the model
ordered a Serial RS232 bolted direct connection for a single connection or a Serial RS485 bolted
network connection for up to 32 connections. The interfaces are designed for reading data from
instruments (by means of corresponding software) with a communication rate of up to 115.2
kbps. A unique MAC address is provided for each Ethernet connection and an IP address can be
set in the i4XS for programming using a standard web browser.
The i4XS is easy to install with the housing designed for a standardized DIN 35x15 mm rail
mounting (in compliance with EN 50022) and an auxiliary AC supply that is selected at order is
Easy Configuration with QDSP Settings Software (i4Dx)
The iSTAT i4Dx DC transducers can be configured using iSTAT QDSP settings software via connection with the Serial (RS232 or RS485) communications
port. QDSP settings software is used across the range of GE iSTAT programmable measurement center and transducer products. The software provides
functionality for device setup, simulation and visualization.
