## User Guide

This differential pressure flow transmitter square root extraction 4 to 20 milliamp current output calculator provides a way to determine the flow output reading from the pressure drop measured across an orifice plate and the differential pressure transmitter range. A conversion scale graphic for each differential pressure and SqRt 4-20mA flow output range combination entered is also displayed below the calculated values.

### Formula

This dp flow transmitter output calculator uses the following formula to calculate the output over a SqRt 4-20mA range:

Linear mA out = 4 + (16 x ((Rdg – Low Limit) / (High Limit – Low Limit)))

### Parameters

#### Unit

Enter the unit used for measuring differential pressure, e.g. mbar, psi, kPa, inH2O etc…

#### Reading

This is the differential pressure measured by the dp flow transmitter that you wish to convert to a square root extraction 4 to 20 milliamp current output reading.

#### Low Limit

Enter the lowest pressure that the dp flow transmitter will measure. For example zero would be a typical value for most dp flow transmitters, but you can also add negative (-) or positive (+) values as well. Please enter the value in the same pressure units as specified for all other input values.

#### High Limit

Enter the maximum differential pressure that the dp flow transmitter will measure.

#### SqRt Output (mA)

This is the expected ideal dp flow transmitter current output signal in milliamps for the pressure drop specified.
