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 backpanels 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.

The uBDC1 power module allows a backpanel populated with I/O modules to operate off DC power voltage levels other than 5V. This optional module plugs into a special socket on the backpanel to convert a power supply voltage from 10-32V DC to 5V/1A which will drive up to 16 I/O modules. uBDC1 modules include over-voltage, reverse-voltage and short-circuit protection (current limiting).

With the uBDC1 power module, users can also implement redundant power methods for the backpanel. In redundant applications, the uBDC1 becomes the primary power source.

  • Description

    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.

    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).
