PLC Tools SIM-TRT Temperature RTD Simulator User Manual

The RTD Simulator was developed to assist maintenance personnel and integrators in RTD analog input testing, troubleshooting and application development.

It temporarily replaces and simulates a 2-wire,3wire or 4-wire Platinum 100 Ohm 385 RTD resistor.

Five fixed output settings are available: 32°F, 100°F, 250°F, 500°F and 1000°F.

A specific output selection made by connecting signal wire to one of the five output terminals

Do not connect more than one output at the same time

Important: Do not use this device for calibration of input modules or instruments. This device is a simple tester that provides simulated signal within a selected range.

Typical Two-Wire RTD Connection

Connect Com and one of Output terminals directly to the PLC input

Typical Three-Wire RTD Connection

Connect dual wires to the Com terminal anda single wire to one of the Outputs

4-Wire RTD simulation:
Connect dual wires to the Com terminal and dual
wires to one of the Outputs
Do Not Operate Device Unless Area Is Non-Hazardous
