DI-8B modules are an optimal solution for monitoring real-world process signals and providing high level signals to a data acquisition system. Each DI-8B34 module isolates, filters, amplifies, and linearizes a single channel of temperature input from an RTD and provides an analog voltage output.

RTD excitation is provided from the module using two matched current sources. When using a 3-wire connection, this method allows equal currents to flow through the sensor leads, cancelling the effects of lead resistances. The excitation currents are small (0.25mA) which minimizes the self-heating of the RTD.

Signal filtering is accomplished with a three-pole filter optimized for time and frequency response which provides 70dB of normal-mode-rejection at 60Hz. One pole of this filter is on the field side of the isolation barrier for anti-aliasing, and the other two are on the system side.

A special input circuit on the DI-8B34 module provides protection against accidental connection of power-line voltages up to 240VAC. 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.
