4-20mA Sensors

Feature

Output Type


4-20mA analog current loop power output

Permanent Measurment


Portable Measurement


Available Frequency Range


Limited pre-configured frequency ranges

Cable Attenuation


Little to no attenuation occurs at long cable lengths

Diagnostic Information Provided


  • Provides output proportional to overall amplitude in selected frequency bands for tending alarms

  • Provides little information that can assist in diagnosing what is causing the vibration

  • Provides continuous output to PLC/DCS system for alarms to trigger shutdowns before catastrophic failures. No change in vibration will go undetected

Great for Use With


PLC, DCS, and SCADA sytems

Top and Side Exit Configurations Available


Molded Integral and Armored Integral Cable Options Available


Hazardous Rated Options Available


Dual Output and Multi-Axis Options


Dual output

Maximum Temperature


Maximum temperature:
212 °F / 100 °C

Backed by the CTC Line's Unconditional Lifetime Warranty


Signal conditioners are a great way to take advantage of the benefits of both Dynamic Vibration Analysis and 4-20mA Process Monitoring. Our SC300 Series Signal Conditioner is a 24 VDC powered transmitter that powers standard IEPE accelerometers and convert the vibration to a powered 4-20mA signal. These transmitters also offer a 4-20mA output for temperature when coupled with CTC dual output vibration and temperature sensors.
