Isolated DIN Rail Analog Current Input Transmitters

Each DSCT32 current input transmitter provides a single channel of analog input which is filtered, isolated, amplified, and converted to a process current output. Signal filtering is accomplished with a five-pole filter, which provides 80 dB per decade of normal-mode rejection above 100 Hz. An anti-aliasing pole is located on the field side of the isolation barrier, and the other four are on the process loop 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.

Special input and output circuits on the DSCT32 transmitters 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. Signal and loop 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 ± 10% 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.
