New High-Density Signal Conditioning Modules Offer Bluetooth¨ Wireless Technology Configuration of I/O Ranges and Alarms

Miniature isolated analogue
I/O modules are available with fixed or user-defined I/O ranges, configured
wirelessly on a mobile app, to provide a high-performance front-end for data
acquisition systems

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.

Advanced 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 available.

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.

Acromag has designed
and manufactured measurement and control products for more than 55 years. They are an international corporation with a
world headquarters near Detroit, Michigan and a global network of sales
representatives and distributors. Acromag offers a complete line of embedded
I/O products including bus boards, mezzanine modules, wiring accessories, and
software. Industries served include military, aerospace, manufacturing,
transportation, utilities, and scientific research laboratories.
