PP6RTD - 6 RTD Input Module

The PP6RTD module is a 6 RTD input module. The module can accommodate either 2 or 3 wire RTD sensors. The RTD inputs are isolated from the logic. 

The RTD resistance is read by the module circuitry, linearised and converted to degrees Centigrade or degrees Faranheit. No ranging is required as the module covers the full range of the RTD. The value that is read from the temperature register is the actual temperature in degrees centigrade to 0.1°C resolution. ie: a value of 3451 corresponds to a temperature of 345.1°C. 

The RTD type is setup by writing a value to the RTD Type register. The value is obtained from the table below. For example to select a PT100 RTD, the value "1" must be written to the RTD Type register. Each 6 RTD input can be configured with a different RTD type. 

A value of -32767 is used to indicate downscale burnout. 

Note: As there is no inter-channel isolation, isolated RTD's must be used in order to prevent ground loops and reading errors.
