  • Multi-range ±20mA or ±500mV input
  • 4-20mA ouput (sink/source)
  • 12-32 V DC loop/local power

The TT236 model is a space-saving two-wire transmitter that isolates and converts a DC current or low voltage input to a proportional 4-20mA control signal. A single unit supports both voltage and current input for extra flexibility. Power is received from the output loop current or a DC supply when using a three-wire connection.

The TT236 model is a space-saving two-wire transmitter that isolates and converts a DC current or low voltage input to a proportional 4-20mA control signal. A single unit supports both voltage and current input for extra flexibility. Power is received from the output loop current or a 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.

Performance Specifications

USB-Isolator: includes USB cable

  • Description

    This compact, industrial-grade isolator provides a high-voltage isolation barrier between a computer and a connected USB device.

    The isolation protects equipment from electrical surges and transient voltage spikes. It also eliminates ground loop currents flowing between the PC and peripherals which can cause damage and inaccurate measurements. Additionally, isolation minimizes conducted noise from static discharge, magnetic fields, and radio frequency interference.

    Acromag’s USB isolator is very easy to use. The isolator inserts in-line with the USB connection and operates transparently. No special software drivers are required. The unit receives power from the PC’s USB port and isolates that power to the connected device. High noise immunity and low radiated emissions ensure reliable data transfer in sensitive applications.

    A number of high-performance features help provide convenient and dependable operation. The green LED indicates that power is being received and blinks if the connected device draws too much current. An internal jumper lets you switch from Full Speed (12 Mbps) to Low Speed (1.5 Mbps) communication. The reset button offers a simple way to reinitialize a connected device without breaking the cable connection. High-retention USB sockets keep cables securely attached under shock and vibration.
