Monitoring Sensor with Ground Isolation and Current Output

In large engines, there are often distances of up to 30 meters between the location of the combustion pressure sensor and the evaluation electronics. If both the sensor and the evaluation electronics are connected to ground, high ground loop currents can flow between these two grounding points. As a result, the analog output signal of the sensor will be superimposed with strong interference...
