  • Red 5-pole plug-in bridges (3 pcs). The bridges are included in the CAB100B accessory bag (included in the delivery)
  • Small screwdriver
  • Wire cutters
  • Wire-stripping pliers

CAB100 analog input channels are not surge protected. Therefore, note the following:

  • The analog input channel wiring must not exceed 30 meters.
  • The wiring must not come from outside the building where CAB100 is installed.

If CAB100 cannot be installed in an environment that meets the above criteria, use a suitable surge protection device that has been installed following local regulations.

CAUTION Before connecting any external measurement device to CAB100, refer to the wiring instructions in the device-specific user documentation.
CAUTION Loop-powered and externally powered measurement devices cannot be connected in the same analog channel terminal block.
To avoid measurement errors, make sure that the analog outputs of the external measurement device are galvanically isolated.

Follow the steps below to connect an externally powered measurement device, for example Vaisala Humidity and Temperature Transmitter Series HMT330 transmitter, to the CAB100B analog terminal block.

For instructions on using the 24 V DC power block in CAB100B for powering measurement devices, see Supplying power to external measurement device from CAB100B.
