Actuator wiring (modulating)

With AC supply, the G0 line has a AC 0.23 A supply current and a DC 0.1 mA
positioning signal current (from Y = DC 0...10 V). The AC voltage drop on the G0 line
does not impact the positioning signal Y.

Determining the line lengths for four actuators GEB16..1 and AC 24 V supply. Only the
AC currents in line 1 (G) and 2 (G0) determine the line sizing.
Max. permissible voltage drop = 4% per line.
Consumption = 4 x 5.5 VA = 22 VA.
Line current = 4 x 0.23 A = 0.92 A.
Permissible single line length for G, G0:
2
90 m at 1.5 mm
line cross section, or
2
149 m at 2.5 mm
line cross section.
