Accurately Measuring Pulse Current on the PCO-6131 and PCO-6141

To measure the output pulse current to the load from your PCO 6131 or the PCO-6141, you will need a Current Monitor assembly. The current monitor contains a current-to-voltage resistor (CVR), also known as a current sense resistor.  The use of this accessory board eliminates the uncertainty of the exact current and pulse shape that […]

How do I set the PCO-6131/PCO-6141 output current?

The output current is controlled by a small DC voltage that can be supplied by either an on-board source (Local Control mode) or by an external source (External Control mode). There are four items associated with setting the output current: I SET three-pin header CURRENT SET pot Current Setpoint input (pin 4 of J2) Output […]
