Large-scale industries like manufacturing and mining produce millions of gallons of wastewater every day. This wastewater can be reused or returned to the environment after going through a wastewater treatment plant. The average time it takes to successfully treat water once it enters the plant is heavily influenced by the technology available. While treatment can take less than a day in some plants, it can take up to 36 hours in others. But if a plant is equipped with the latest process automation technology, wastewater treatment takes less time.
A signal conditioner is a device that changes or boosts the signal between the controller and the field device to make sure the communication works properly. A common application for signal conditioners is when you have a mV input from a thermocouple going into a
4 mA … 20 mA input card. A signal conditioner converts the mV signal into a 4 mA … 20 mA signal. In this blog, we will discuss 6 signal conditioners that all engineers should be aware of.
