Question

How can the analog signal output 4-20mA of the Displacement Sensors be covered to 1-5V?

Answer

The conversion can be achieved in such a way that a voltage of 1-5V is taken from the analog output terminals to which the resistance of 250 Ω (1/4W or more) is connected in parallel.

Example:

Connection between the Displacement Sensor (analog signal output 4-20mA) and the Digital Panel Meter (DC voltage input type)

*It is required that the connecting resistance value is within the allowable load resistance of analog output of the Displacement Sensor.

*Be aware that the tolerance of resistance value of 250 Ω indicates an error of output voltage.
