    our local andover ddc guy had a pretty cool little meter, it ran on a 9v battery and could send out a 4-20ma or 0-10vdc output for testing actuators and stuff, they got them from a controls rep. never got the name, anyone know who makes this and how much $$$ i think it would be a nice accessory to my fluke meter

    For the Johnson and Siemens actuators on the 10 VDC
    I use a 9 Volt battery
    works great
    Long as the battery ground is connected to the 24 V.A.C.
    neutral
    The Siemens tech gave me the tip

    I PULLED A JOHNSON SERIES 350 CONTROL OUT OF A JUNK UNIT HOOKED IT UP TO A TRANSFORMER AND CORD, DOES 4-20 AND 0-10 VOLTS .PLACE A RESISTOR ACROSS SENSOR TERMINALS (1000 OHMS I BELIVE}HAS A LED GRAPH ON THE FRONT THAT TELLS YOU WHAT THE OUTPUT IS WORKS GREAT AND ISNT EXPENSIVE

    Forget the Fluke and the Johnson M-9000. Buy a Kele ASG. Runs on 9 vdc battery or external power (comes with own converter). Generates 0 to 10 vdc or 0 to 20 mA outputs. Also has a nice little ramp output feature. Comes in own little pouch. Great, inexpensive, portable tool for testing motors like Belimo or Barber-Colman "beer" cans and the like. Oh, can also "source" mA signal from own power supply or be used in a "loop powered" circuit. Think it cost me like $130.00 plus shipping.

    I have the KELE one that cost about $130, great tool, saves alot of time when setting up actuators and such.
    Your poor planning does not constitute an emergency on my part!!!!

    I have also used a JCI A350P for a long time (Way to think out of the box, bobbym).

    The only drawback is having to drag around a cord but it didn't cost me anything as it was also a takeout from a CW AHU.
