Model LTE42RMA4 includes:
Model LTE42RMA4 by Laurel Electronics is a 0 to 5.000 A True AC RMS input, Ethernet I/O plus 4-20 mA or 0-10V analog output and dual relays. DIN rail transmitter. Model is configured for Extended main board and Power over Ethernet.
The Laureate 4-20 mA output, DC 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 to accept the output of 5A current transformers, with no need for a stepdown transformer. The current readings can easily be scaled digitally as needed.
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 0.1% 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 can be achieved dual solid state relays, which are standard. 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.
Use with current Transformers. High common mode rejection allows stable readings with current shunts located on the high side of the line. Five amp input capability allows the output of 5A current transformers to be applied directly to the transmitter, with no need for a stepdown transformer. The transmitter output can easily be scaled for the type of current transformer. Digital filtering is selectable for noisy signals.
Three analog output transmitter settings are jumper selectable: 4-20 mA, 0-20 mA or 0-10V. The output tracks the reading up to 99,999 counts that would be transmitted digitally. For AC RMS signals, this reading has an accuracy of 0.1% of full scale from 1% to 100%, 10 Hz to 10 kHz, and can be calibrated in software. Output isolation from signal and power grounds eliminates potential ground loop problems. The supply can drive 20 mA into a 500 ohm (or lower) load for 10V compliance, or 10V into a 5K ohm (or higher) load for 2 mA compliance.
