Re: ADC-24

Hi Gerry,

OK, will try that. Thanks.

ADC-24

Hi,

I am using the ADC-24 to hook up a mV pressure sensor with differential output (+SIGNAL and -SIGNAL). I connect up the 2 signal leads to channels 7 and 8, but I am not sure if I should also connect the GND from the power supply to the AG of the ADC-24. Can anyone advise? Cheers.

Re: Connecting Picolog 1216 with Analog Pressure Sensor

Hi Gerry,

I have contacted the customer support of the sensor company to find out. In the meantime, should I go ahead and experiment with the resistor values that you have suggested, what is the worst thing that can happen? I assume the readings will be just wrong, but it won't blow things up right?

Re: Connecting Picolog 1216 with Analog Pressure Sensor

Hi Gerry, I have another sensor, from EFE Sensor, which is the 4-wire millivolt output type. The 4 wires are: RED: + EXCITATION (+10 V) GREEN: + SIGNAL (Channel 5) WHITE: - SIGNAL (Channel 6) BLACK: - EXCITATION (GND) SHIELD: SENSOR HOUSING (Leave it alone? Or connect to GND?) The datasheet stated t...

Re: Connecting Picolog 1216 with Analog Pressure Sensor

Hi Gerry, I found the error. For C9, I should solder the 10kohm resistances to R17 and R18, and for C11, to R21 and R22 respectively, as shown in Figure 5 (Page 5).

Re: Connecting Picolog 1216 with Analog Pressure Sensor

Hi Gerry,

Yes, I cut the connections for both R9 and R11, hence I was able to measure the resistances after soldering.

Re: Connecting Picolog 1216 with Analog Pressure Sensor

Hi Gerry, Finally soldered the solid state resistors to the terminal board, on R9 & R10 and R11 and R12. This would correspond to C9 and C11 right? Decided to use C9 and C11 as C1 was too close to the edges. I measured that the resistances were 10 kiloohm (thereabouts) across the connections. I appl...

Connecting Picolog 1216 with Analog Pressure Sensor

Hi,

I am trying to setup the Picolog 1216 to work with an analog pressure sensor:

Can someone show me where and how to get started?

Thanks in advance.
