These back panels serve as a carrier for up to 16 microBlox I/O modules. They provide power connections, input/output wiring terminals, and earth grounding (host-side) for the I/O modules. Each module slot (I/O channel) has switches to enable Bluetooth communication (with LED) and cold junction compensation for thermocouple inputs.
An industry-standard analog I/O bus aggregates all host I/O channels on a DB25 connector to facilitate simultaneous access by high-speed data acquisition systems. Field points are isolated channel-to-channel and as a group to the host analog I/O bus (host includes power).
Acromag’s microBlox® uB Series I/O modules offer a compact, high-performance solution for interfacing sensors and field devices with data acquisition systems. uB signal conditioning modules are ideal to isolate, filter, convert and amplify a wide variety of signal types for test, measurement and control systems. Just plug uB modules into 4, 8, or 16-channel back panels in any mix for a high-density analog I/O interface. Channel-to-channel isolation provides optimal noise and surge protection from ground loops, spikes, and high common mode voltages.
