4-20 mA & Serial Data Transmitter for AC RMS Voltage or Current
Responds in 1 power line cycle response with 0.1% accuracy. DIN Rail mounted, digitally programmable.
The Laureate 4-20 mA and RS232/RS485 output, AC RMS input transmitter provides six voltage input ranges and four current input ranges, all factory calibrated and jumper selectable. A special 5.000A range utilizes a built-in 0.01 ohm shunt resistor to accept the output of 5A current transformers, with no need for a stepdown transformer. The current readings can be scaled digitally as needed. High common mode rejection allows stable readings with current shunts located on the high side of the line. Digital filtering is selectable for noisy signals.
True RMS precision circuitry is used to determine the root-mean-square of complex waveforms from DC to 10 kHz. Spikes up to 3.0 times the maximum of each range are accurately measured.
Accuracy is an exceptional 0.03% of full scale for signals from DC to 10 kHz and signal amplitude down to 0. The crest factor (Vp / Vrms) is 3.0 at full scale, increasing to 300 for a signal amplitude of 1% of full scale.
True RMS readings in as little as one 50/60 Hz AC line cycle are unmatched in the industry. Such a high read rate allows anomalies to be detected and alarmed before they become expensive problems. On/off control and alarm are provided by dual solid state relays, which are standard. The transmitter can also capture peak and valley for times as short as one 50/60 Hz AC power line cycle.
AC or DC coupling is jumper selectable. AC coupling accommodates signals from 10 Hz to 10 kHz and is suitable for applications such as measuring the ripple on a DC power supply. DC coupling accommodates signals from 0 Hz to 10 kHz. Multiple integral cycles are averaged for signals above 50/60 Hz. A single cycle is captured for signals from 3 Hz to 50/60 Hz. Below 3 Hz and at DC, the capture rate is every 333 ms.
Standard features of Laureate LT transmitters include:
Easy Transmitter programming is via Laurel's Instrument Setup Software, which runs on a PC under MS Windows. This software can be downloaded from this website at no charge. The required transmitter-to-PC interface cable is available from Laurel (P/N CBL04).

Please see our explanations and limitations applicable to pricing and online orders Prices shown are in US Dollars and are Laurel's manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) in the USA. Orders are processed manually, not directly by our shopping cart system. You don't have to supply credit card information when placing an online order.
North American Orders. Laurel does not sell factory-direct in the USA or Canada. Online sales orders are filled through distribution. During the ordering process, you will have the chance to select an authorized Laurel distributor, or you can ask Laurel to refer you to a distributor. The distributor will then contact you to quote shipping, tax and duty (where applicable), and arrange for payment.
International Orders. If your ship-to address indicates that you are outside of the USA or Canada and Laurel has a distributor in your country, we will forward your order to that distributor for follow-up. If Laurel does not have a distributor in your country, we will email you an order acknowledgment and a pro forma invoice which states the product price, shipping charges, and wire transfer information, which includes a $25 bank wire transfer fee.
