DSCA-Current In/Out

Isolated Signal Conditioners for DIN Rail

Analog Current Input Signal Conditioners 100 Hz (DSCA32)

Each DSCA32 current input module provides a single channel of analog input which is filtered, isolated, amplified, and converted to a high-level voltage output. Signal filtering is accomplished with a five-pole filter which is optimized for step response. An anti-aliasing pole is located on the field side of the isolation barrier, and the other four poles are on the system side. After the initial field-side filtering, the input signal is chopped by a proprietary chopper circuit. Isolation is provided by transformer coupling, again using a proprietary technique to suppress transmission of common mode spikes or surges.

Module output is either voltage or current. For current output models a dedicated loop supply is provided at terminal 3 (+OUT) with loop return located at terminal 4 (-OUT). The system-side load may be either floating or grounded.

Special input circuits provide protection against accidental connection of power-line voltages up to 240 VAC and against transient events as defined by ANSI/IEEE C37.90.1. Protection circuits are also present on the signal output and power input terminals to guard against transient events and power reversal. Signal and power lines are secured to the module using screw terminals which are in pluggable terminal blocks for ease of system assembly and reconfiguration.

The modules have excellent stability over time and do not require recalibration, however, zero and span settings are adjustable up to ± 5% to accommodate situations where fine-tuning is desired. The adjustments are made using potentiometers located under the front panel label and are non-interactive for ease of use.


Current Output Signal Conditioners 1 kHz (DSCA39)

Each DSCA39 current output module provides a single channel of analog output. The input signal is buffered, isolated, filtered and converted to a unipolar or bipolar current output. Signal filtering is accomplished with a five-pole filter which provides 100 dB per decade of attenuation above 1 kHz. An anti-aliasing pole is located on the system side of the isolation barrier, and the other four poles are on the field side. After the initial system-side filtering, the input signal is chopped by a proprietary chopper circuit. Isolation is provided by transformer coupling, again using a proprietary technique to suppress transmis-sion of common mode spikes or surges.

2-Wire Transmitter Interface Signal Conditioners with Loop Power 100 Hz (DSCA42)

Each DSCA42 2-wire transmitter interface module provides a single channel of 4 to 20 mA process current input which is filtered, isolated, amplified, and converted to a high-level voltage output. An isolated 24 V power supply is provided to power the 2-wire transmitter. Signal filtering is accomplished with a five-pole filter which is optimized for step response. An anti-aliasing pole is located on the field side of the isolation barrier, and the other four poles are on the system side. After the initial field-side filtering, the input signal is chopped by a proprietary chopper circuit.
