Electropneumatic transducer

Unread postAuthor: rp181 » Tue Jun 10, 2008 9:55 pm

I have a transducer shipping and i was wondering if anyone here has used one of theese, if so, how did you control it? Im thinking using a 12v Voltage regulator and a pot should be sufficient.

Im getting: http://www.omega.com/ppt/pptsc.asp?ref=IP610 from omega.

EDIT: I've never worked with flows, so is that flow (20 SCFM) enough to act as the actuall valve?

Yeah, that sounds good, I don't think 20mA is enough to fry a good sized pot.

20 CFM isn't a hell of alot. The most powerful PC fan around moves 119 CFM.

I'm not exactly sure how you plan on using a regulator as a valve...
