Resistor Wattage for Converting Analog Input 4-20mA to 1-5V

2019-04-30T11:40:30-06:00April 8th, 2016|Categories: Process Control|Tags: , , , |0 Comments

Choosing the correct wattage for Converting Analog Input 4-20mA to 1-5V is very important. With higher DC voltages you can quickly reach the upper limits of your resistors and possibly blow them up. For understanding how to convert 4-20mA to 1-5V Analog Inputs see our blog post converting analog input 4-20ma to 1-5v.   Calculating [...]

There are essentially 2 ways to read Analog inputs: reading current or reading voltage. Current is generally the most common because it can reach longer distances across the wire without losing analog input signal. Voltage, on the other-hand, will degrade over long distances producing inaccurate readings. When working with devices that only read 1-5V [...]
