Description

Function :

To convert low level input signal such as Thermocouple, RTD, Potentiometric Signal, mA signal, micro Amp signal, AC Voltage, AC Current and V DC signal into galvanically isolated mA signal, linearly proportional to the input. Two Wire Transmitter relies on Loop Power from the receiving device, usually 24V DC, to operate the Transmitter interface & send the signal back to the receiving device.

This Converter carries both the signal from the Transmitter and the power to the Transmitter on a single pair of wires. Hence it is called as 2 Wire Converter.

Various Types of 2-Wire Signal Converters depending upon Input Signal :

  1. V DC to mA converter
  2. mV DC to mA converter
  3. mA DC to mA converter
  4. micro Amp DC to mA converter
  5. AC current (Through C. T. up to 5A) to mA Converter
  6. R (Resistance)/ Potentiometer to mA Converter (Position Transmitter)
  7. AC voltage (up to 415 V AC) to mA converter
  8. RTD Transmitter with lead length compensation
  9. Thermocouple Transmitter with Ambient Temperature Compensation

  Eliminates ground loop problems.
  Provides immunity from line drops and interference signals.
  Input and Output circuits are galvanically isolated to the level of 1.5 kV peak. Simple twisted pair cable is sufficient to carry output signal for long distance, without any interference.
  Converters suitable for multirange potentiometric inputs are available.
  Cold Junction Compensation is provided for Thermocouple Input & Lead Length Compensation is provided for RTD Input.
  No need to lay separate power cable.
  Thermoplastic, DIN rail mounting type housing for mounting inside the panel.
  Cast Aluminium OR ABS / Polycarbonate, IP-65 grade, Enclosure suitable for field mounting.
