The ITMA accepts a thermocouple or millivolt input and converts it into a voltage or current output. The voltage or current output is linearly proportional to the temperature or millivolt input. This output is ideal for interfacing to indicators, chart recorders, controllers, or other instrumentation equipment.
The ITMA is DC powered. The DC power input is isolated from the signal input and analog output. The unit scales the analog output proportionally to the thermocouple or millivolt input signal. The analog output may be configured for one of the following: 0 to 20 mA, 4 to 20 mA, or 0 to 10 VDC. Making the signal conversion with the ITMA to a current output signal, makes the signal less susceptible to noise interference and allows accurate transmission over long distances. The 3-Way isolation allows the use of grounded thermocouples which can provide additional noise reduction benefits.
The ITMA uses a ten position DIP switch to accomplish the input sensor configuration, range selection, and unit calibration. A simple range setting technique (Field Calibration) is used so the actual input signal adjusts the output for scaling. This technique eliminates the need for potentiometers which are vulnerable to changes due to vibration.
The unit is equipped with a universal mounting foot for attachment to standard DIN style mounting rails, including top hat rail (T) according to EN50022 - 35 x 7.5 and 35 x 15, and (G) profile according to EN50035 - G32.
