: Signal Conditioners
What are signal conditioners?
With the variety of process control systems available, it is often necessary to convert an input signal into a format that the system will accept. Signal conditioners take signals from an assortment of field instruments such as thermocouples and RTDs, and convert those signals into any of several standard instrument signals (1…5V, 4…20 mA, etc.).
Signal conditioners are also beneficial to the accurate transfer of these signals, isolation and the elimination of ground loops.
