Open up RsLogix 500 and create a new file by clicking the white icon in the top left corner of RsLogix 500. An arrow pointing up or down close to the instrument is used to denote either of direct-acting or reverse-acting. All the loop wires have resistance, usually expressed in Ohms per length. Basically, don't add a resistor. Am I understanding this correctly? Now you are probably wondering, what does that 32,000 value mean? Check the 3 jumpers on the module for channel selection also per the manual. The switch can be pressed to reset operations to the start once the open circuit has been rectified.
On the diagram there are R1,R2,R3,R4. But now you have to make sure that the flow meter is floating not grounded on the power supply -ve if your analogue input is common -ve is grounded. Is there something else I should of done? Here is the diagram of the circuit: setting pins and the open collector outputs can be connected to do any local control of switching. Therefore, many current loop circuits use a Receiver Resistor R in our case to convert the current into a voltage. Current loops are ideal for data transmission because of their inherent insensitivity to electrical noise.
This design will interest technicians who work on pneumatically operated valves and other -20mA controlled devices. All devices connected to make up a 4 to 20 milliamp current loop are connected in series. I know this because if you configure the module for voltage but hook up current, the input is half as 0-5V would be. I can't find where it says the module provides the loop power but it sure looks like it. In this situation the power for the loop is delivered by the external power supply, the A2007 current source controls the current in the loop, the current is received by the connected device.
The current allowed by the transmitter is called the loop current and it is proportional to the parameter that is being measured. Author: Allan Doust — Copyright: Silicon Chip Electronics. The current flowing through R produces a voltage that is easily measured by the analog input of a controller. In some industries, to control the some equipments they are use computer-controlled 4-20mA. A few notable ones are 6241 will be 1, 12,482 will be 2, 18,724 will be 3, 25,965 will be 4, and 31,206 will be 5 on the analog meter. You still haven't supplied the transducer part number, never mind a link.
As a design tool I always draw arrows indicating current direction on my drawings. Since the A2007 is a passive device and also does not supply power to the loop an external power supply is necessary. The flow meter wiring diagram is given by the supplier themselves too. The Loop Wires When current flows through a wire, it produces a voltage drop proportional to the length and thickness gauge of the wire. As shown in the connection diagram below. We also provide images such as wiring diagrams, engine diagrams, parts diagrams, transmission diagrams, replacement parts, electrical diagrams, repair manuals, engine schemes, wiring harness, fuse boxes, vacuum diagrams, timing belts, timing chains, brakes diagrams, and engine problems , you can find it in the search box above the right side of this website. Details of this can be seen in the accompanying program listing.
Your diagram of the water meter suggest that the meter itself is the current source and just requires a dc supply as shown to function. When first powered up, the sinks 4mA of current. This loop is used transmit a signal over a long distance wires. Now enter some values into the 0:1. Is your potentiometer working backwards as in all the way to the right is near 0 instead of all the way to the left? If you need a refresher on these two types of analog signals see the lesson. The issue here is just whether I should connect my plc analog module to the 24 vdc supply.
AlexHey Alex, ok so my error was that I hooked both V- up connections up and I shouldn't of, correct? Thanks, 24V supply and 250 ohm looks fine per the graph. All the devices in the loop drop voltage due to the signal current flowing through them. The A2007 current loop simulator is used to set the current in the loop. If you want to display the reading onto your analogue input then you need to connect it in series with the meter. I'm not trying to hammer you, just trying to help you help yourself out. This card is provided with a power supply for the connected field transmitters so the A2007 current loop simulator can be connected direct. In this configuration the module provides power to the A2007 current loop simulator.
I am just worried I spoil a new analog module again. The can be used in 2-wire 4-20 mA current loop circuits. The 4 — 20mA, 2 — Wire Transmitter The transmitter is the heart of the 4-20mA signal system. The potentiometer should be adjusted to produce an output current of 12. The remaining voltage is dropped by the transmitter to regulate the current in the loop. Loop drawings can be customized per customer taste although certain minimum standard information is required to be included in loop sheets. In the diagram above, R is a 250 ohm resistor.
