Analog sensors connection

This section includes child pages:

Connecting analog sensors

Connect the analog sensor by a supplied RJ-11 (6P4C) cable to any analog port "A1 .. A8" or "Sensor" port. The determination of the sensor type and connection will occur automatically.

If strong electromagnetic interference is present, we recommend using a 3-pair cable CAN FTP for sensor connection!

1- Orange, 2- White Blue, 3- Blue, 4 - White Orange

Colors are true for this telephone cable. Both ends match the colors and pinouts (identical).

Please refer to the RJ connectors comparison table:

Daisy chain connection

Some of the analog sensors can be connected to a daisy chain. Please refer to the article "Chain Connection of analog sensors".

Extending the number of analog sensors

Using CAN extension "VT408 / Sensor extension unit" it is possible to increase the number of analog sensors connected to the monitoring unit up to 80 sensors.
