PCV10 is a multirange converter / isolation amplifier with current, voltage and pulse inputs and current, voltage, pulse or relay outputs.
The unit is supplied with 3 current and 3 voltage input connections, which makes it possible to program any input range between 15 μA and 10 A or 15 mV and 1000VAC/1500 VDC. With DC-inputs it is possible to monitor both positive and negative signals.
With AC inputs the converter monitors the RMS value of the signal, which means the signals are converted without any errors, no matter which shape they have.
The unit can also be programmed with frequency input, where the same input connections are used. The frequency of the input signal is then monitored instead of the analogue level.
You can select between 2 different output configurations:
Type A is supplied with analogue current output, programmable between 0 and 20 mA and analogue voltage output, programmable between -10 and +10 V.
Type B has the same outputs as type A, but in addition it is also supplied with pulse output, programmable to a maximum frequency of 10 kHz.
The unit is supplied with 2 trimming potentiometers, which can be used to fine-adjust the metering range, if the unit is used with analogue outputs. In either case the potentiometers can be disabled and fixed values selected, if adjustment is not required.
If you want, you can order the unit with specified metering ranges, or you can program it yourself, by means of the C-mac programming software for PC and a small interface to connect between the PC and the module.
