Category: Potentiometer Transmitter
A potentiometer transmitter allows industry standard potentiometers to be directly connected to PLC 4.20mA inputs and industrial IO modules to be used as position sensors. The 4.20mA potentiometer transmitter connection is a standard format in industrial measurement and control systems. The 4.20mA signal allows the position sensor measurement to be run much further than the direct connection of the potentiometer position 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.
