JH5800 POTENTIOMETER INPUT TRANSMITTER
DIN-RAIL MOUNT, FIXED RANGE
The Model JH5800 Potentiometer Input Transmitter provides an isolated DC output proportional to the position of a potentiometer or slidewire wiper. The input range may be 0-100% or any 10% or wider portion of the wiper's travel. Calibration is unaffected by the potentiometer's end-to-end resistance.
Red-green Quick-Check LEDs give a quick indication of the relative output. Red is brighter at the low end, green at high, while at mid-scale both are approximately equal. Red-only indicates offscale low while green-only indicates offscale high.
Standard transmitters include filtering to smooth measurements and minimize noise pickup. When fast response is needed, Option HS speeds the response time to approximately 1 millisecond. Other response speeds are available on special order.
Available options include AC and DC power choices and reverse-acting transmitter (decreasing output with increasing input).
Approximately 1 msec (See Specifications). Specify Option HS.
Model JH5800 snaps onto 35mm DIN rail. Connections are made to the front-panel terminals. The terminal strip unplugs to facilitate calibrating or replacing the transmitter.
Connections to the 8 terminals (top to bottom) are:
1: Counterclockwise (0% travel).
3: Clockwise (100% travel).
4: No connection.
5: Output plus.
6: Output minus.
7: Power (AC or, if DC power option, DC plus).
8: Power (AC or, if DC power option, DC minus).
Standard: Under 100 milliseconds. Option HS: Approximately 95% complete in 1 msec. Frequency response 3dB down at approx. 600Hz.
