Question
Can the outputs on the sc 200 controller be read using volts instead of mA's?
Summary
sc 200 controller output testing/reading using volts instead of mA's.
Answer
Below is a conversion table to assist in measuring the mA signal on a controller with a portable voltage meter. If a voltage meter does not have a mA option, volts can be used instead. This can be utilized when calibrating, testing, or scaling the outputs with a 4-20 mA signal.
 
mA Amps x Resistance Volts
4 0.004 x 250Ω 1
5 0.005 x 250Ω 1.25
6 0.006 x 250Ω 1.5
7 0.007 x 250Ω 1.75
8 0.008 x 250Ω 2.0
9 0.009 x 250Ω 2.25
10 0.010 x 250Ω 2.5
11 0.011 x 250Ω 2.75
12 0.012 x 250Ω 3.0
13 0.013 x 250Ω 3.25
14 0.014 x 250Ω 3.5
15 0.015 x 250Ω 3.75
16 0.016 x 250Ω 4
17 0.017 x 250Ω 4.25
18 0.018 X 250Ω 4.5
19 0.019 x 250Ω 4.75
20 0.020 x 250Ω 5
