DUAL-CHANNEL TRANSMITTERS SAVE SPACE AND REDUCE COSTS

25-01-2019

Acromag now offers dual-channel versions of its popular process transmitters for signal conditioning of temperature, voltage, current and resistance sensor inputs. Its new DT series offers a cost-effective and space-saving way to interface a variety of process and sensor signals to control systems.

With two independent signal-conditioning channels in a 17.5mm wide module, users can achieve significant savings compared with using multiple single-channel transmitters. A signal splitter mode lets one input drive both outputs. Loop-powered 2-wire and externally-powered (7-32V DC) 4-wire versions are also available.

Input options include process current, DC voltage, thermocouple, RTD and resistance signals with proportional process current or unipolar/bipolar voltage output.

A USB port simplifies setup on a PC with Windows software or on an Android mobile device using Acromag’s Agility app. Hazardous location approvals, high noise immunity and a wide operating temperature range mean the transmitters can be used in harsh environments.

High-resolution analogue-to-digital converters perform high accuracy measurements with repeatability and stability. High voltage isolation separates each input, output and power circuit. The free configuration software helps users quickly select input/output ranges and precisely scale input/output limits. Each model supports several input ranges and can output a proportional 0/4-20mA, 0-10V or ±10V DC signal. Removable, front-facing terminal blocks facilitate wiring. A rail power bus option can supply multiple units from a single connection or establish redundant power.
