Laureate 4-20 mA output, DC input transmitters provide six voltage ranges and four current ranges, all factory calibrated and jumper selectable. The 200.00 mV and 2.0000 V ranges provide a high input impedance of 1 Gohm to minimize the load on the voltage signal. A 5.000A range measures the IR drop across a built-in 10 mW current shunt. The transmitters can also easily be scaled in software for use with external shunts.

Laureate DC input transmitters duplicate the performance and programmable features of their Laureate DC digital panel meter counterparts. Features include exceptional accuracy at high read rate, and optional dual solid state relays for local alarm or control. The transmitters are housed in a DIN rail case that is only 22.5 mm (0.89") thick. Signal connections are via detachable screw-clamp plugs.

In addition to the 4-20 mA output that would typically be used for signal transmission in an industrial environment, a 0-10V analog output is selectable. Either selection provides 12-bit (0.025%) resolution of output span and is ultra-linear to within one bit. The output tracks the reading that would be transmitted digitally. For DC signals, this reading has a rated accuracy of ±0.01% of full scale input and can be scaled in software so that its resolution exceeds output resolution. DC transmitter accuracy is set by the DAC and is ±0.05% of output span.

Output isolation from signal and power grounds is provided by a separate on-board transmitter power supply, thereby eliminating potential problems caused by ground loops. The supply can an drive 20 mA into a 500 ohm (or lower) load for 10V compliance, or 10V into 5K ohm (or higher) load for 2 mA compliance. Transmitter programming is via a three-terminal RS-232 port using Laurel's PC-based Instrument Setup Software. This software can be downloaded from this website at no charge. The required transmitter-to-PC interface cable is available from Laurel (P/N CBL03).
