What is the 4-20 mAmp converter used for?
The AKCP 4-20 mAmp converter is used to connect specialised sensors that are not available from AKCP to the securityProbe range of environment monitors. The 4-20 mAmp is a standard for highly precise sensors. Examples of the types of sensors that support the 4-20 mAmp standard are Air Pressure Sensor, Photo Electric Light Sensors, Soil Moisture Sensors, Toxic Gas Sensors, Radiation Sensors and Water Flow Sensors.
The sensor must have a two wire termination.
