Module Expander Makes Isolated Industrial Measurements Convenient and Cost Effective
AKRON, OH, April 15, 1999 — DATAQ Instruments introduces a new unit for isolated industrial data acquisition measurements, its DI-75B backpack expander. The unit is designed for the company's DI-720 and DI-730 products and may also be used with DI-400 Series plug-in data acquisition cards. By accepting up to eight 5B style modules, the DI-75B brings the universe of isolated industrial measurements to the DI-720, -730 and -400 products, including thermocouple, true rms, voltage, strain, frequency, process current, RTD, potentiometric, and DC transducer.
These signal-conditioned measurements can be mixed and matched in any combination to suit any individual application. A maximum of two 75Bs can be used with any supported data acquisition engine to yield sixteen 5B-conditioned inputs, in addition to any remaining channels provided within the original data acquisition unit.
Key Product Features.
The DI-75B also features:
- Stackable design with optional mounting hardware that enables the unit to be easily mounted to the top of the 720 or 730.
- Built-in process current shunt sockets that allow a 20-ohm shunt to be placed inside the DI-75B enclosure.
- "Power" and "Low Power" LED indicators that indicate when power is applied and when that power is inadequate for use by the DI-75B.
- The ability to be powered from any 9-36VDC source, which makes the unit completely portable.
The unit is priced at $795 US and is available from stock.
