DC INPUT ADD/SUBTRACT TRANSMITTERS
PLUG-IN MODULES, FIXED RANGE

 
Model Numbers:
JH4400I: Output = (A+B+C+D)/4
JH4401I: Output = (A+B+C)/3
JH4402I: Output = (A+B)/2
JH4408I: Output = A-B

The JH4400 Series offers DC outputs representing 2, 3 or 4-input sums or (A-B) difference. Input and output ranges need not be the same; for example, the inputs could be 0/10Vdc while the output could be 4/20mA. These are fixed-range devices, precisely calibrated to your specified ranges at the factory.

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.

Input/output isolation is standard. (The inputs are not isolated from each other.)  Available options include, AC or DC power choices and reverse-action Option RT (decreasing output with increasing inputs).

UNDERSTANDING THE INPUT FUNCTIONS

Standard calibration provides low-end output (0%) when all inputs are at 0%. Full-scale output (100%) occurs when all additive (+) inputs are at 100% and all subtractive (-) inputs are at 0%. Standard calibration assumes the output always will be 0% or higher, never negative. All calculations are on a percent-of-span basis. With 4/20mA, for example, 4mA = 0% and 20mA = 100%. Likewise, for –5/+5V, -5V=0%, 0V=50% and +5V=100%.

Nonstandard setups and calibrations are possible. For example, we have created a number of specials providing unequal input weightings (such as A+2B+0.5C+0.5D), and with up to six inputs. Please contact the factory with your requirements.
