THE AI780 analogue module for B&R Automation's 2005 controller system is available from Procon Instrument Technology . It is distinguished by its high converter resolution, complete electrical isolation and the ability to provide detailed status information.
The AI780 module is equipped with eight analogue inputs with 16-bit resolution for current signals ranging from 0mA to 20mA. All inputs are electrically isolated from one another. In addition, each measuring channel has a separate electrically isolated sensor power supply.
Measurement signals are converted in one of two ways: either in a continuous conversion mode that runs independently of the application or by converting all channels simultaneously using an external trigger command.
It is also possible for the module to internally change measurement values into more reasonable physical values. This allows measurement range transgressions, overload, and short-circuits in the encoder supply to be detected. In particular, the AI780 is best suited to meet the high demands of common automation tasks.
The complete electrical isolation also allows existing systems to be connected to new automation devices. The module performs extremely well when handling the demands of process automation.
The AI780 input module is compatible with the entire B&R 2005 control system module series.
