The GT-ARES transmitter is an interface that accepts a DIP switch selectable analog input (voltage or current) and uses that signal to proportionally control a variable resistance output. The device output simulates a three-wire slide wire or rotary potentiometer and has both ends of the potentiometer and the wiper available on a terminal connector. The resistive output is electrically isolated from the input signal.
The GT–ARES includes a regulated power output that can be used to power a current-loop transducer and also features a failsafe input that will connect to the output terminals in case of a power loss or for manual output control. There is an LED power indicator and manual override jumper for failsafe operation.
