4-20mA sensor connection to DCE

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by Gabor Novak on 2019-11-20


I’m searching a solution to connect 20 x 4-20mA sensor readings to the DCE system.

The NetBotz 570 support 4 x 4-20mA sensors input. I have found in the manual that I can connect 4-20mA Input Pod 120, which is discontinued, the replacement is NBPD0129.

 

I haven’t found documentation for this input pod 120 and the Netbotz 570 connection.

How many pod can I connect to the Netbotz 570?

This type of Input modul is connected via USB cabel?

Does it need external power supply?

 

There is another solution to connect external 4-20mA sensors to the DCE system?

Hi Gabor,

 

The NBPD0129 IS the old 4-20 sensor pod. The documentation for the pod can be found here:

https://download.schneider-electric.com/files?p_File_Name=ASTE-6Z5S7S_R0_EN.pdf&p_Doc_Ref=SPD_ASTE-6...

The pod connects via USB. There is nothing different about the connection to the 570 than there was from the old 420 or 500 models. All configuration should be nearly identical.

Hi Steve,

 

If I want to connect 12 pods, how can I make this?

There is just 4 usb port on the Netbotz 570.

 

The pod is powered through the USB cable?

Hi Gabor,

 

You'd want to use powered USB hubs.
