thermistor temperature transmitter

A thermistor temperature transmitter allows industry standard RTD temperature sensors to be directly connected to PLC 4.20mA inputs and industrial IO modules. The 4.20mA transmitter connection is a standard format in industrial measurement and control systems. The 4.20mA signal allows the RTD temperature sensor measurement to be run much further than the direct connection of the RTD temperature sensor itself. 4.20mA signals can be run directly for thousands of feet, when using the correct cable and power supply. Many PLC inputs either standardly or optionally can be configured for 4.20mA, and it is not unusual to find spare inputs in an installation.

Example 4-20mA thermistor transmitter wiring diagram A Simple 4-20mA Transmitter Operation Description The 4-20mA transmitter can be looked at as a temperature controlled variable load. It is in series with the power supply and current measurement shunt resistance. The effect is similar to the transmitter acting like a potentiometer. One that will vary total load
