Superthin Analog Signal Conditioners

Nov. 4, 2004
The Mini MCR signal-conditioning product family comes in 6.2-mm housings and carries power-busing capabilities.

Universally configurable and dedicated versions of the modules are available to convert signals from RTDs, thermocouples, and various analog sensors. A signal splitter, single and multichannel, loop-powered modules are also available. Measuring range settings and input type selection are custom configurable, and there are three possible methods of powering the modules. Discrete wiring for power is no longer necessary with the optional system power supply, power terminal block, and T-foot power-bus coupler that mount on the DIN rail. These hot swappable modules are simply snapped on to the T-foot bus connector without removing any bus bars or bridging. Options include choice of screw or spring-cage terminals, and modules are UL-listed Class I, Div. 2 approved (Groups A, B, C, D).
