8B modules are an optimal solution for monitoring real-world process signals and providing high-level signals to a data acquisition system. Each 8B49 module accepts an input signal from a non-isolated source, then isolates, filters and converts the signal to a high-level process voltage output.
Signal filtering is accomplished with a 4-pole filter optimized for time and frequency response which provides 80dB per decade of normal-mode rejection above 100Hz. One pole of this filter is on the system side and the other three are on the isolated field side.
A special output circuit in the 8B49 module provides protection against accidental connection of power-line voltages up to 40VAC continuous. Clamp circuits on the I/O and power terminals protect against harmful transients.
The modules are designed for installation in Class I, Division 2 hazardous locations and have a high level of immunity to environmental noise.
A wide range of backpanels, DIN rail mounting options, cables, racks, power supplies and other accessory items are available for the 8B49 current output module.
