Functional Description

5437-418 is a FTM Analog Derivative Module developed by Woodward. Field Termination Modules (FTM) serve seamless connections between field wiring and the front of MicroNet control's I/O Modules. Designed to optimize efficiency and reliability, FTMs play a critical role in ensuring robust communication and data exchange within complex control environments.


  • FTMs are specifically engineered to interact with the subminiature D-type connectors located on the front surface of MicroNet control's I/O Modules. These connectors act as vital interfaces through which data and signals flow. By securely engaging with these connectors, FTMs establish a dependable link that forms the foundation of reliable communication.
  • What sets FTMs apart is their incorporation of cage-clamp terminal connection points. These points are strategically designed to accommodate the termination of field wiring. The cage-clamp mechanism provides a secure grip on the wires, ensuring stable and vibration-resistant connections. This advanced technology enhances the overall reliability of the system, enabling consistent data transmission even in challenging industrial environments.
  • The synergy between the subminiature D-type connectors and the cage-clamp terminals of FTMs is where the convergence of physical and digital worlds takes place. This partnership is responsible for converting real-world sensor data and signals into actionable insights within the control system. FTMs play a pivotal role in this translation process, guaranteeing that the data collected from the field is accurately and swiftly interpreted for control and monitoring purposes.

Product Attributes

  • If an external power source is employed to ensure contact wetting, it is essential to connect the common terminal of the external source to the discrete input common of the FTM.
  • Each of the two sets of relay drivers (Discrete Outputs) necessitates its own external power supply.
  • The power source for contact wetting, whether it's an Internal or External Discrete Input, benefits from short circuit current limiting directly onboard the FTM. Thanks to this protective measure, the module is incapable of detecting a power fault condition located at the FTM.
  • While the module does keep tabs on the power source to the FTM, the scope of fault coverage is confined to internal module anomalies. For situations where the discrete input power holds critical significance, Woodward recommends monitoring the voltage using one of the discrete inputs. Achieving this entails designating one discrete input for the monitoring task. By configuring a jumper for this input to consistently read logic high (TRUE), any indication of a logic level low (FALSE) in the dedicated discrete input signal can be flagged by the GAP application. This provides the capability to initiate appropriate actions in response to a power fault on the Discrete I/O FTM.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is 5437-418?
It is a Analog Field Terminal Module developed by Woodward.

Does the module monitor its power source to the FTM?
Yes, the module does monitor its own power source to the FTM. However, it's important to note that this monitoring is primarily focused on identifying internal module faults.

How can critical I/O involving discrete input power be safeguarded against potential faults?
Woodward recommends monitoring the voltage of the discrete input power by dedicating one of the discrete inputs for this specific monitoring purpose. By configuring this input to consistently read logic high (TRUE) through a jumper, deviations in the logic level can be detected.

How can the detection of a power fault on the Discrete I/O FTM be utilized for appropriate actions?
The dedicated discrete input configured for voltage monitoring can play a pivotal role in flagging abnormal conditions. If the dedicated discrete input signal displays a logic level low (FALSE), the GAP application can be triggered to initiate suitable actions in response to the identified power fault.
