    control simulator

    Hi Guys

    What do you guys use for 0-10vdc/4-20ma control simulation for bench testing controls? I have searched and found a few 4-20ma simulators but cant find any 0-10vdc simulators. I know it would be easy to use batteries eg. 1.5v steps but want to buy/make a potentiometer with readout.

    Anyone have any pics of homemade simulators?

    Thanks

    It's not homemade, but I have this one, It works pretty good for the money.

    I have a Johnson M9000-200 Commissioning Tool. I have had for awhile. I like the fact that will also do 135ohm, floating point(with a switch), and goes up to 20vdc.
