• 12-32V DC power
The TT234 model is a space-saving two-wire transmitter that isolates and converts a resistive sensor input to a proportional 4-20mA signal. Power is received from the output loop current or a DC supply when using a three-wire connection. The transmitter provides sensor excitation plus performs linearization, lead-wire compensation, and lead-break detection.
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.
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.
