Cable wiring for sensor / tester

Cable wiring for sensor / tester

Cable wiring for sensor / tester

I need to make some wiring between SMC ISE40 pressure switch and Hydrotechnik Multisystem 5070. The problem is I am not so good with electrics.
The tester is able to provide sufficient power supply for the sensor, so I won't need external power source and only use one cable between sensor and tester to cover it all.

Here is the pin assignment for 5070 tester. LINK for full datasheet.

And this one is from the ISE40 sensor. LINK for datasheet.

Power supply (+) and ground (-) are pretty simple. My ISE40 is model -T, so it sends analog voltage output (gray wire) which I should attach to pin 4?

But the sensor has 5 wires, with black and white for PNP outputs (on-off switches?). I don't need these PNP outputs at all, so is it OK to only connect the pins 2, 3, 4 from tester to blue, brown and gray to ISE40 sensor? Is it sufficient for analog output to work?

And if I choose to also connect the black and white, should I connect them to tester pin 2?

There is no ISD (intelligent sensor detection) on this sensor, so I need to manually parametrize the values needed. But that's no problem, it's easy to do with this tester.

RE: Cable wiring for sensor / tester

It appears that the 5070 measuring device supplies DC power to 2-wire or 3-wire field sensors, probably to avoid ground loop issues. So power the SMC sensor with the 5070 DC power.

The pressure sensor is a 3 wire device:
+ Signal Out on Gray
+ DC power on Brown
signal (-) and DC power (-) on Blue

0/10V analog input on 5070
pin 4 is + signal > Gray
Pen 2 is GND > blue
Pin 3 is +DC power > Brown

Do not connect the Black and White open collector outputs to Blue (DC -) without a load (like a relay coil). Just leave Black and White unconnected.
