White Paper: Understanding Two-WireTransmitters and 4-20mA Loops
As the leading analog transmission standard for industrial I/O, the future continues to look bright for the4-20mA current loop. The current loop's lossless nature, lower-sensitivity to induced noise, live-zero offset, fail-safe operation, easy scalability and abundance of inexpensive compatible devices make it very popular. And loop-powered two-wire transmitters, which considerably simplify installation and conversion of real world signals (flow, level, temperature, pressure, etc.) into 4-20mA, continue to evolve with modern technologies. But despite their popularity, two-wire transmitters and 4-20mA loops are often misapplied and many misconceptions exist. This white paper explains the proper way to use and install transmitters in a current loop. You'll also learn how to determine required supply voltages, filter out noise, add fault protection, and compensate for wire resistance.
Conformal Coating Protection
Acromag's automated conformal coating process is a great improvement over hand application because it ensures a uniform and consistent application of the conformal coating. See how Acromag's boards can be protected from moisture and humidity with a conformal coating in this video.
