Solution: The difference in potentials between two grounded, non-isolated devices may result in a ground loop. Installing an SIY or ECT to break the galvanic path prevents the effects of ground loops, motor noise and electrical interference.

Model Number Example
SIY / PRG / 4-20MA / 10-42DC [DIN]
ECT / 4-20MA / 4-20MA / 12-42DC [DIN]
