The SP233 model is a high-performance signal splitter that converts one millivolt or thermocouple sensor input into two proportional isolated 4-20mA control signals. Power is received from one or both output loop currents.

Setup is fast and easy with a USB connection to your PC and our Windows software. Acromag’s Agility™ mobile app enables configuration on an Android smart phone or tablet. Software simplifies I/O range scaling, calibration, and advanced signal processing capabilities.

High-voltage isolation separates the input and between the output circuits. The isolation protects from surges, reduces noise, and eliminates ground loop errors.

These rugged instruments withstand harsh industrial environments to operate reliably across a wide temperature range with very low drift. They feature high immunity to RFI, EMI, ESD, and EFT, plus low radiated emissions.

Performance Specifications

IMPORTANT: To prevent ground loop error between a grounded PC and a grounded input signal, Acromag strongly recommends use of a USB isolator like Acromag’s USB-Isolator when configuring a SP230 Series transmitter.

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.
