Potentiometer Converter, KFD2-PT2-EX1-5

  • 1-channel isolated barrier
  • 24 V DC supply (Power Rail)
  • Potentiometer input
  • Current output 4 mA ... 20 mA
  • Lead resistance compensation adjustment
  • Accuracy 0.05 %
  • Up to SIL 2 acc. to IEC/EN 61508

This isolated barrier is used for intrinsic safety applications. It provides the source voltage to a potentiometer and transfers its wiper position from hazardous areas to safe areas. It then converts the signal to a 4 mA ... 20mA current output.

The unit can be used in a 3-, 4-, or 5-wire configuration depending on the required measurement accuracy. Terminals 2 and 5 are used as the sense line for the potentiometer lead resistance compensation in a 5-wire configuration.

The barrier’s potentiometer can be used to compensate for lead resistance up to 5 % of the hazardous area potentiometer value.
