New high-density signal conditioning modules offer Bluetooth wireless technology configuration of I/O ranges and alarms

A full line of
microBlox™ isolated signal conditioning modules are now available from Acromag
microBlox™ uB Signal Conditioning Module. Offering over 175 models the microBlox
uB modules can safely interface a wide variety of voltage, current,
temperature, frequency, and other field signals with a ±5V or 0-5V DC output to
host measurement & control systems.

Users can select
modules with fixed ranges or wireless configuration via Bluetooth¨ wireless
technology on an Android™ or iOS¨ mobile device. Acromag’s free AgilityTM app
for smartphones and tablets simplifies setting custom I/O ranges and optional
alarm functions. The app can also display input signal values and create
sharable trend charts. uB modules snap securely into compact back-panels (no
screws) in any mix with 4, 8 or 16-channel capacities. With 1500Vac peak
(350Vdc continuous) channel-to-channel and field-to-host isolation, the
hot-swappable modules are ideal to front-end data acquisition systems or
Acromag remote I/O for communication to Ethernet, Modbus, or Profibus networks.
High performance is assured with up to 0.05% accuracy and 130dB noise rejection.

microcontroller and wireless technologies enable microBlox modules to bring
greater flexibility and signal processing capabilities into such a small,
economical package.

The microBlox
module’s small size (1.11″ x 1.65″ x 0.4″) and
channel-by-channel scalability is ideal for embedded or portable applications
such as test stands, defence systems, and process control applications.
Well-suited for use in harsh industrial environments, the over-moulded modules
resist shock, dirt, and moisture with dependable operation from -40 to 85¡C.
Hazardous location UL/cUL Class 1 Div 2 and ATEX Zone 2 approvals are also

Accessories include a
selection of back-panels with slots to insert 4, 8, or 16 modules. Fuse clips
hold the modules securely without screws for easy insertion/removal. The back-panels
support surface or DIN rail mounting and include CJC for use with temperature
input modules. Blue LEDs indicate modules that are ready for Bluetooth wireless
technology communication. Connections are provided for a 5V power source or a
10-32Vdc supply when used with the plug-in 5V power module. A DB25 header
facilitates a single cable connection to interface all uB I/O signals directly
to the host data acquisition system.
