The SCM5B49 voltage output signal conditioning modules provide a single channel of analogue output. Voltage input and outputs on the SCM5B49 module includes; 0-5V, ±5V, 0-10V, ±10V.
The track-and-hold circuit in the input stage can be operated in a hold mode where one DAC can supply many output modules, or a track mode where one DAC is dedicated to each module. In addition to the track-and-hold circuit, each SCM5B49 voltage output signal conditioning module provides signal buffering, isolation, filtering, and conversion to a high-level voltage output.
Setting of the track or hold mode is controlled by the logic state of WR EN\, module pin 23. When pin 23 is low, the track mode is enabled. If pin 23 is high, the hold mode is enabled. The module is designed with a completely isolated computer side circuit which can be floated to ±50V from Power Common, pin 16. This complete isolation means that no connection is required between I/O Common and Power Common for proper operation of the track and hold circuit. For a low state, simply connect pin 23, the Write-Enable pin, to I/O Common, pin 19.
SCMPB02 and SCMPB06 backpanels allow host computer control of the WR EN\ control line, which allows multiplexing of one host DAC to up to 64 SCM5B49 voltage output modules.
Circuit boards are potted within a rugged, compact and industry standard 5B package measuring just 58mm (H) x 57mm (W) x 15mm (D), making it ideal for applications where space needs to be considered. Identical gold-plated pin-outs are used to ensure a reliable connection. With a wide operating temperature of -40°c to +85°c and are also suitable for use in locations where there is presence of a flammable element such as vapours, gases or dust with being ATEX compliance pending. Other certifications include CE and CSA. The SCM5B49 voltage output signal conditioning module goes through a 48-hour burn-in operation and is tested twice whereby test results are uploaded to the website and can be found via searching the unique serial number.
