Analog sensors connection

Analog sensors connection

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!

6P4C RJ11 cable wiring/pinouts

1- Yellow, 2- Green, 3- Red, 4 - Black

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 in 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.
