Product Highlights

This signal conditioner is a two-channel analog input module with discrete outputs and Modbus communication. It conditions periodic or pulse waveform inputs and provides solid-state relays for limit alarms or ON/OFF control.

Versatile inputs accommodate many applications using TTL, magnetic pickups, proximity sensors, or a variety of switches (high/low-side transistor, dry contact, open drain, open collector). Bipolar and unipolar waveforms are supported with a selectable input bias that accepts both zero and non-zero crossing signals. Voltage threshold and relative hysteresis are also user selectable.

Inputs may also function as event counters with separate microcontrollers for each channel. The module counts pulses on the positive or negative edge. It can wrap around to zero for continuous counting, latch at a programmed count value (setpoint), or automatically reset itself to zero after reaching a setpoint value. Software controls enable remote resets. A variety of filters help remove noise, jitter, and other mechanical effects to prevent false counts.

The discrete outputs can operate as independent alarms or provide on/off control regulated by the host system. As limit alarms, each output can be set for high and/or low setpoints exclusively tied to an analog input. These low cost modules are ideal for standalone alarms as well as for local backup of the primary control system. See the Circuit Connection Diagrams.
