F2A3X Frequency to Analog Converter/Tachometer


Regular price $299.00 Sale


View Accessories


The F2A3X Frequency to Analog Converter is a DIN rail module that converts a frequency input signal into a proportional analog voltage (0-5VDC) or current (4-20mA) output. The output signal is electrically isolated from the input signal and input power source, effectively eliminating troublesome ground loops. The input signal can be supplied from a Monarch sensor (measuring RPM for example) or any source of digital signal not exceeding 12 volts. The F2A3X is completely user-programmable using the free downloadable PM Remote Software. A NIST certificate of calibration is included.
