The Current Loop Simulator/Generator was developed to assist maintenance personnel and integrators in 4 to 20 mA analog input testing, troubleshooting and application development for a reasonable cost.
You can also see our store for our Pro version that is self powered.
There are many reasons that we have came up with this and our other integrator tools, some include...
1. Small and light enough to fit in your tool pouch or laptop bag.
2. Easy to use.. just wire it up and start troubleshooting your system and producing a usable signal.
3. So many times you need to generate a signal, then go to the other end (PLC, Controller, etc) and watch that signal
4. For the price you can not afford to do without one or two... under 50.00 (free shipping in the US)
It simulates a 2-wire loop powered transmitter.
Five fixed output settings are available: 4 mA, 8 mA, 12 mA, 16 mA or 20 mA.
A specific output selection made by connecting signal wire to one of the five output terminals
Simulator can work with wide range of loads from 0 to 1000 Ohm, typical analog input impedance is 250 Ohm.
Loads above 400 Ohm require 24V or higher loop power supply
Output accuracy is ±1% of the full scale or ±0.20mA
A typical 2-wire installation requires a loop power supply usually provided by an external 24VDC power supply
Some sourcing Analog Input modules can provide loop power also.
