What is i/e or o/p transmitter(ma/v)?..

Answer / carl_ellis

An i/e converter is a current to voltage converter. A
current to voltage converter is a resistor. Electrical
current through a resistance develops a voltage. Ohms Law
determines the voltage drop, E = I/R.

An i/e resistor is typically used in the process world in
4-20mA current loops as the component installed across the
(+) and (-) terminals of an analog input because analog
inputs expect a voltage input. The majority of DCS, PLC,
recorder, controller and indicators use 250 ohms as an input
but other values are used, 1 ohm, 10 ohms, 62.5 ohms, 50
ohms, 100 ohms. Do not assume an analog input is 250 ohms.

I have installed a RTD whose length is 2250mm(RTD stem length), but it's upper 200 -250mm is out of the reactor, and this upper 200mm stem is surrounded by atmospheric temp. And the lower portion i.e. 2000mm is in contact with the measuring fluid, then does the final measuring temp. Gonna change as the upper 200mm RTD stem is out of reactor?
