The Isolated Splitter for Analog Signals is a critical component in automation systems, designed to connect the analog signal of a measurement device to two separate processing units. This ensures accurate and reliable data transmission.
This splitter accommodates a variety of standard analog signals, including 4-20mA, 0-10V, and 0-5V. The specific models and their respective input and output capabilities are as follows:
The Isolated Splitter provides dual output functionality. For instance, the output of a temperature transmitter can be connected to the splitter’s input, with output1 linked to a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and output2 connected to a display. This configuration enables effective system monitoring and control.
A key feature of the splitter is its four-way Galvanic Isolation. This isolates the Input, Output1, Output2, and the power supply from each other, significantly reducing the impact of interference and ground potential differences.
The Isolated Splitter for Analog Signals includes the following features:
- Four-way isolation
- 3500VDC isolation
- TS-35 DIN rail mounting
- +/-0.1% accuracy
- IP40 case
- Screw terminals
- Power LED
- Supply voltage 24VDC
- Manufactured in the EU
Industrial Automation Applications
The Isolated Splitter for Analog Signals is particularly useful in industrial automation. In short, mitigates errors caused by noise and signal interference and protects sensitive equipment, such as PLCs, from potential hazards.
In a scenario where a temperature sensor operates in a 4-20mA current loop, and you need to record the temperature in data acquisition hardware while controlling a manufacturing process with a PLC, the Isolated Splitter for Analog Signals is a really useful device. It isolates the input signal and provides two isolated output signals. You need to connect your sensor to the input, the data acquisition hardware to Output 1, and the PLC to Output 2. The outputs should be loop-powered for efficient operation.
Below, you can see an example video of how the Isolated Splitter for Analog Signals is connected to the 2 measuring devices, doubling one input signal.
