Product short description:
  •  Dual channels
  •  ±20mA, ±500mV inputs
  • 4-20mA outputs (sink/source)
  • 7-32V DC loop power

The DT236 model is a dual two-wire transmitter that isolates and converts DC current or low voltage inputs to proportional 4-20mA control signals. Power is received from the output loop current or a DC supply when using a three-wire connection.

DT236: Current/mV Input Two-Wire Dual Transmitter Description

DT230 series signal conditioners provide two independent I/O channels in a single, space-saving unit.

The DT236 model is a dual two-wire transmitter that isolates and converts DC current or low voltage inputs to proportional 4-20mA control signals.

Power is received from the output loop current or a DC supply when using a three-wire connection.

High-voltage isolation separates all input and output circuits from each other.

Isolation protects from surges, reduces noise, and helps eliminate ground loop errors.

Setup and calibration are fast and easy with a convenient USB connection to your PC and Acromag’s Windows configuration software. The Android app enables setup with mobile devices.

Advanced signal processing capabilities, variable range input/output, and convenient USB programming make this instrument very versatile.

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.

Why Do I Need Electrical Isolation? - 8500988 (Log in to view the file)
Why do we need signal isolation? Acromag is in the business of signal conditioning. We manufacture circuits that amplify, isolate, filter, and convert one signal form to another. Most of these circuits also provide electrical isolation. However, added isolation has a cost. Thus, sometimes customers either question their need for isolation or fail to recognize...
Why You Need USB Isolation for Industrial I/O - 8500-901 (Log in to view the file)
USB Isolation and Industrial I/O Isolation is achieved by removing any direct electrical connection between two devices or portions of a circuit, but having them work as if they were electrically connected. Isolation is generally rated by how high a low current AC voltage can be set before there is arcing across the isolation barrier....
