Overview

CTS-4-20 LVDT system consists of either an HCI Series LVDT linear position sensor or an R36AS RVDT rotary position sensor, along with an electronics module which provides a 4-20mA current loop output.  The CTS-420 operates on an unregulated 10 to 36VDC supply voltage. The electronics module provides the position sensor with the required AC voltage excitation voltage and converts the AC voltage output into a smooth 4-20mA signal. The zero and span adjustment potentiometers, as well as the sensor and loop supply connection terminals, are all conveniently located on the front panel for easy installation and calibration.
