AKCP intelligent sensors
The AKCP 4-20 mAmp signal converter is used for integration of the AKCP sensorProbe and AKCP securityProbe remote security devices with a 4-20 mAmp transmitter. The 4-20 mAmp technology is used to transmit analog signals over long distances in enviroments with electrical interference.
The process control industry uses this technology to collect the analog values from remote sensors because current signals are much less susceptible to noise than voltage signals. A voltage signal can be converted to current and then broadcast over a long distance before it is converted back to voltage and read by the AKCP sensorProbe or AKCP securityProbe device.
