Product short description:
  • USB Programmable
  • Plug-In Input Modules
  • Dual Current or Voltage Output
  • 6-32V DC Power

The uBSP carrier is used with plug-in Acromag microBlox (uB) input modules to build a flexible signal splitter/duplicator. Select from a variety of uB modules to match your input signal type for conversion to two proportional process current or voltage outputs. A third auxiliary voltage output is driven directly by the uB module.

The uBSP carrier is used with plug-in Acromag microBlox® (uB) input modules to build a flexible signal splitter/duplicator. Select from a variety of uB modules to match your input signal type for conversion to two proportional process current or voltage outputs. A third auxiliary voltage output is driven directly by the uB module.

High-voltage isolation separates the input from each output circuit. The isolation protects from surges, reduces noise, and eliminates ground loop errors.

Setup is fast and easy with a USB connection to your PC and our Windows software. Acromag’s Agility™ mobile app enables configuration on an Android smart phone or tablet. Software simplifies I/O range scaling, calibration, and advanced signal processing capabilities.

These rugged instruments withstand harsh industrial environments to operate reliably across a wide temperature range with very low drift. They feature high immunity to RFI, EMI, ESD, and EFT, plus low radiated emissions.
