Pulse Control Modules

Convert 4 to 20 mA to Proportional Power Control

PCM Series


Basic Unit

Model PCM1

Model PCM2

Convert 4 to 20 mA Input from Temperature Controller or Computer to Time Proportional ac Output Mounts Directly on an OMEGA 3 to 32 Vdc Input SSR Two Models Available for Singleand 3-Phase Operation
The OMEGA PCM series converter module allows simple conversion of a 4 to 20 mA output to an on/off time proportioning output. The module mounts directly to the input terminals of the SSR. Screw terminals are provided on the converter for the 4 to 20 mA control signal. The SSRs power section connects in standard fashion to the line and load. The PCM module with a solid state relay provides a rectangular shape, time proportional (zero-fired) control signal to the load. Thus, the average power to the load is proportional to the 4 to 20 mA input signal.
