Module connects multiple analog signal conditioners to Ethernet

Acromag has released another member of its BusWorks Ethernet I/O module family to simplify the task of interfacing data from virtually any analog sensor to a Modbus TCP/IP network. The new 958EN model has 16 analog input channels and a quick-connect DB25 port to capture isolated and amplified sensor signals from a full panel of 8B signal conditioners.

Acromag has released another member of its BusWorks Ethernet I/O module family to simplify the task of interfacing data from virtually any analog sensor to a Modbus TCP/IP network. The new 958EN model has 16 analog input channels and a quick-connect DB25 port to capture isolated and amplified sensor signals from a full panel of 8B signal conditioners. The module performs 16-bit A/D conversions to make temperature, frequency, strain gage or other sensor data available to any control device via Ethernet. Typical applications involve processes requiring high voltage isolation or a mix of signal types, such as power generation, glass and metal processing, test and measurement instrumentation, and SCADA systems. Units are configured using any Internet browser to set operating parameters on embedded Web configuration pages. An auto-copy function lets users apply a saved configuration to multiple units. The automatic calibration function uses built-in precision sources, and an on-demand self-test capability verifies calibration and performance.
