Available 24 VDC four-channel analog input modules with 13-bit resolution include 0-20 mA current input and 0-10V voltage input versions, priced at $89; 12-bit resolution four-channel output modules in 4-20 mA current and 0-10V voltage versions are priced at $119.
The Echo transducers are said to provide the industry standard 3.33 mV/V, 4-20 mA and voltage signals designed to work with most pressure indicators.
All models provide simultaneous linear outputs of 0-10 VDC and 4-20 mA. To improve the resolution of a PLC or data system, the 4-20 mA signal can be changed in the field to spans of either 0 to 1.
