Transmitter, High Voltage Input, Loop-Powered
• Multi-range ±15V, ±75V or ±150V DC input
• 4-20mA ouput (sink/source)
• 12-32 V DC loop/local power
The TT238 model is a space-saving two-wire transmitter that isolates and converts a high level DC voltage input to a proportional 4-20mA control signal. A single unit supports multiple voltage input ranges for extra flexibility. Power is received from the output loop current or a local DC supply when using a three-wire connection.
High-voltage isolation separates the input from the output circuit. Isolation protects from surges, reduces noise, and eliminates ground loop errors.
Setup and calibration are fast and easy with a convenient USB connection to your PC and Acromag’s Windows configuration software.
Advanced signal processing capabilities, variable range input, and convenient USB programming make this instrument a very versatile temperature measurement device. These transmitters can withstand harsh industrial environments and operate reliably across a wide temperature range with very low drift. They feature RFI, EMI, ESD, EFT, and surge protection plus low radiated emissions.
Agility™ Config Tool is available for free.
IMPORTANT: To prevent damage or errors from grounded PCs and surges, Acromag strongly recommends use of their USB-ISOLATOR when configuring a TT230 Series transmitter.
