Loop Calbrators - 2 Wire or 4 Wire?

Loop calibrators are the most common calibration and troubleshooting tool used in the instrumentation field. A loop calibrator normally can generate and measure the 4 to 20 milliAmp (mA) signal used in instrumentation loops, hence, the name. So what is the difference between 2 Wire and 4-Wire?


2 Wire uses loop power from an outside instrument power supply to generate a controlled 4 to 20mA signal


4 Wire means the source of power for the mA signal is coming from the battery in the calibrator. It's called four wire because it simulates the 4 to 20mA signal as though it were coming from a 4-Wire transmitter.


Still confused? Application Note with Illustrations: Loop Calibrators - 2 Wire or 4 Wire?
