The MC6-Current Limiter is designed to install in 4-20mA loops and prevent short circuits from causing a power supply to turn off. In the event of a short circuit the maximum current draw from the power supply is 24mA. Thus a short in one loop will not cause the power supply to turn off and shut down a complete system. Although preventing the power supply from shutting down is desirable it is also important to know there is a fault. For this the MC6-Current Limiter provides a digital output to indicate it is in current limiting mode. When the short is corrected the module automatically reverts to normal operation.
