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.
