CONVERTER 420VX - current to voltage converter (transducer) board with DIN-RAIL mounting option.

 

The CONVERTER-420VX board is designed to perform industrial standard precision current to voltage linear conversion (transducer). If used properly, it will eliminate the need for an expensive board, which would otherwise be needed to carry out the same tasks.

 

The CONVERTER-420VX  is easy to install, setup and operate. If you want to do professional remote linear current measurement related functions, The CONVERTER-420VX offers the features you need. It can be mounted easily via two 0.125" mounting holes utilizing 4-40 screws.

 

Simply connect the board to 15V DC Power supply, connect your current source 4-20mA to the input and our board will convert it to linear voltages (see tables for different output ranges). 

 

The current to voltage transducer module CONVERTER-420VX, converts and conditions 4-20mA signals to DC voltage. 

 

The CONVERTER-420VX transducer is typically used to convert currents 4-20mA to a stable constant-voltage source. A precision instrumentation amplifier and filter combination provide an accurate, conditioned 10 or 5 V output from a 4-20mA current input.

 

Other input current are available:

 

1 to 5mA, 10 to 50mA and 20 to 100mA

 

 

 

CONVERTER 420VX, precision Voltage-to-Current transducer board is an accurate, linear, and an efficient way to convert current standards 4 to 20mA, 0 to 20mA signals to industrial standards voltages:

Model A, 0 to 10V, 0 to -10V,  10 to -10V,  -10 to 10V,  -5V to 5V,  5V to -5V... Model B, 0 to 5V, 0 to -5V,  5 to -5V,  -5 to 5V,  -2.5V to -2.5V,  2.5V to -2.5V, 0 to 10V, 0 to -10V... Model C, 0 to 3.3V, ... Model D, 0 to 3V, ...

The board come standard with SPAN and ZERO adjustments.


 

 

Current 4-20mA (4...20mA) to Voltage Converter receive signals from a hazardous area instrument i.e., temperature sensors, potentiometers or load cells and then convert and condition them into Industrial signals: 0-10V (010V) or Bi-polar +/-10V (-10010V)

 

 

Precision Current-to-Voltage Converter/Transmitter

 

Precise calibration with simple SPAN and ZERO adjustments:

 

1. Zero calibration via multi-turn trimmer adjustment.

2. Span calibration via multi-turn trimmer adjustment.
