4-20mA signal

Postby Dave O'Mahony » Tue Feb 15, 2005 3:14 pm

I am using an ADC-16 Data logger. I was reading some of the solutions to other e-mails and Iwas wondering 1. if the data logger I have will accommodate this signal from a flow sensor and from a pressure sensor. I presume I would need a shunt resistor.

Hi

Thank you for your post.

Yes, if you wish to measure 4-20mA you can, but as you say you will need a shunt resistor. This will convert the signal to a voltage which the logger can read. You can then also scale this back to mA in the software.

Hope this helps

Best Regards
Sarah
