Dataforth’s DSCT series of loop powered 2-wire transmitters consists of seven family groups with a total of 48 transmitter models that interface to a wide variety of voltage, current, temperature and position measuring devices.
DSCT 2-wire transmitters condition and send analog signals from sensors located in the field to monitoring and control equipment, usually computers, located thousands of feet away in central control areas
They accept a wide range of inputs, including millivolt, volt, milliamp, thermocouple, RTD, potentiometer, and slide wire
They operate on power from a 2-wire signal loop and modulate the supply current to represent the input signal within a 4 to 20mA range
Two-wire transmission loops provide very economical connections between sensors and distant control rooms. Since the DSCT operates from the signal loop current, only low cost, twisted pair wiring is needed.
