Isolated thermocouple/mV signal conditioner
The FC-T1 is a DIN-rail or side-mount, thermocouple/mV input signal conditioner with isolation between input and output. The field configurable input allows a wide ranging capability for J, K, E, R, S, T, B, N, C type thermocouple and -156.25 mV to +156.25 mV.
The FC-T1 has built-in self-calibration, but also has OFFSET (zero) and SPAN (full scale) potentiometers for adjustment of the output signal. The FC-T1 is also equipped with cold junction compensation (CJC) circuitry to provide an internal ice-point reference. The temperature calculation and linearization are based on data provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
The FC-T1 field configurable thermocouple/ mV input signal conditioner is useful in eliminating ground loops and interfacing sensors to our PLC analog input modules. If your requirements are just for one channel of temperature you can add the signal conditioner to your 4-20 mA input modules.
Or, if your requirements are for a single millivolt signal source, you have the freedom of adding this input to your analog module. The FC-T1 uses a combination of sophisticated circuitry to accomplish the conversion tasks, state of the art analog to digital converter and DAC chip.
Upscale or downscale thermocouple burnout detection selection is also provided.
