You know that signal conditioners convert field signals into standard signals and avoid interference from ground loops - but did you also know that they protect personnel and equipment from dangerous overvoltage?
Discover other useful features of signal conditioners.
Signal conditioners protect signal circuits against high-frequency coupling. For example, for drive motors with variable frequency control, the input filter of the signal conditioners filters coupled interference. Thus, measurement and control circuits in environments with high-frequency interference are effectively protected.
Signal conditioners double input signals. When signals are needed for several parallel outputs, such as in DCS and ESD systems, or data acquisition systems, signal conditioners provide the input signal at the output in parallel. The input signal can be used independently by several systems. In case of system failure the other signal remains available.
Signal conditioners adapt sources and sinks within a signal circuit. When a field device and a control unit feed current at the same time into the channel, the result is a non-functional circuit. Signal conditioners ensure the potential equalization within the channel. All combinations of current sink, current sources, and voltage sources can be realized.
