Yoctopuce Yocto - 4-20mA - Rx
Valarm Tools Cloud supports this 4-20mA sensor adapter.
This device will let you connect a Valarm compatible connector device (like GSM sensor hubs, WiFi sensor hubs or Ethernet sensor hubs) to any industrial sensor for monitoring and recording the status of up to 2 4-20mA sensors. Your Industrial IoT, remote monitoring, and sensor telemetry information will be available at tools.valarm.net. The 4-20 mA signaling standard is a broadly adopted industry standard for reliably sending sensor data along great distances over inexpensive wiring (thousands of feet and meters).
Here are some real world applications where this exact sensor adapter is used with Valarm Tools Cloud for monitoring:
- Water levels / depths in wells
- Chemical, liquid, & fluid levels in tank farms
- Water levels and volumes in ponds
Have a look at our Customer Stories page for more on how this industry standard sensor is used by businesses and organizations in different verticals around the world.
How can you and your team use this Industrial IoT information? See our Web Dashboards for Remote Monitoring, Telemetry, Sensors & Industrial IoT.
The Valarm compatible Yocto-4-20mA-Rx sensor allows you to monitor and record the status of up to 2 4-20mA sensors. The 4-20 mA signaling standard is a broadly adopted industry standard for reliably sending sensor data along great distances over inexpensive wiring (thousands of meters).
You can use this flexible 2-channel device for an incredibly broad array of applications like:
- Water Resources Management - Telemetry for Water Usage, Water Well Levels, Fluid Flow Meters
- Chemical Distribution, Tank Levels, Fluids Monitoring
- Soil Moisture
- Leaf Wetness
- Precision Temperature
- pH, turbidity, and other water quality factors
- Pressure (Fluid / Gas)
- Linear & Rotary Position Sensors
- AC Current sensors
- Chemicals and Gases, e.g., H2S (Hydrogen Sulfide) & NH3 (Ammonia)
- Water Monitoring Solutions & Systems
These are just a few ideas that come to mind when you realize that any sensor implementing a 4-20mA interface is now connectable via USB.
You can find sensors for all kinds of physical measures using the standard 4-20mA interface. Transmitting the measure using a 4-20mA current loop makes it possible to get a very precise reading (up to 0.01%), and works even when the sensor is far away from the Yoctopuce module.
The Yocto-4-20mA-Rx support 2-wire sensors (powered from the current loop) as well as 3-wire sensors (sensors that require an additional power supply with shared ground) and 4-wire sensors (with an isolated power supply). It can even provide up to 80mA to power 3-wires sensors that do not require too much power. The supply voltage is regulated 23V, isolated from the USB bus but common to both inputs.
Enclosures sold separately, this sensor uses the long, thick with vents Yoctopuce enclosure or the much less expensive, custom snap-together enclosure.
There's also a Mounting Bracket for screwing this module down to an enclosure panel.
