Analog PLC Inputs are crucial for modern control systems. They are utilized for pressure sensors, temperature sensors, weight-scales, flow meters, level transmitters & other devices which report a range rather than a simple ON/OFF signal. These devices typically send a 4-20mA or a 0-10VDC signal back to the main panel. At this point, the control system needs to provide an input capable of capturing this specific signal.
