Q438 Input Signal Conditioner

Brand: Eurotherm
Does not ship to United States

The Q438 is a DIN rail mount, potentiometer input signal conditioner with 1,800 Vdc isolation between DC power and the input/ output circuitry.

The input provides a constant voltage and is designed to accept any three-wire potentiometer from 100 to 100 KiloOhms.

The field configurable output is switch selectable providing a 0 to 5 V, 0 to 10 V, 0 to 1 mA, 0 to 20 mA or 4-20 mA DC signal.

Wide ranging, precision zero and span pots, used in conjunction with DIP switches, allow 80% adjustablity of offset and gain to transmit a full scale output from any 20% portion of the potentiometer input.
