Controlling a Forta actuator from PLC system

Issue

Controlling a Forta actuator from PLC system using 0-10V output.

Environment

TAC Forta actuator 

PLC controller

Cause

The PLC system is using a 0-10V control output to control the TAC Forta (MX and X1 input), powering the TAC Forta (G and G0 input)using a separate transformer.

Resolution

As long as the PLC system and TAC forta units are fed from separate transformers, this should cause no problem, and galvanic isolators on the control signal should not be required.

Make sure to not mix up G and G0 in case several TAC Forta actuators are fed through the same transformer.
