Connecting measuring sensors
You can connect different measuring encoders to the analog input module:
● Current transmitters as:
In this chapter you will find out how to connect the measuring encoders and what to watch
out for when doing so.
Cables for analog signals
You should use shielded and twisted-pair cables for the analog signals. This reduces the
effect of interference. You should ground the shield of the analog cables at both ends. If
there are differences in potential between the cable ends, an equipotential bonding current
that may interfere with the analog signals will flow across the shield. If this is the case, you
should only ground the shield at one end of the cable.
Analog input modules
The analog input modules are electrically isolated:
● Between the logic and backplane bus
● Between the load voltage and the channels.
