Since its beginnings in 1984, Dataforth Corporation’s commitment has been to successfully meet customer needs through ongoing design, development, and manufacture of top quality, low cost Industrial Electronics. Now, 30 years later, Dataforth’s high-performance Instrument Class® data acquisition control, signal conditioning, and data communication products continue to ensure rugged signal and data integrity, wide spectrum accuracy, and unrivaled reliability for wide-ranging industrial applications around the world.
“We have recently expanded into a second building to ensure we will have the facilities to enhance and grow our product lines for years to come,” said Bill McGovern, National Sales Manager. “As the needs of the marketplace continue to change, we are ready to meet whatever challenges come up. We have just introduced our powerful, high performance MAQ20 Industrial Data Acquisition & Control System, which we offer with a choice of two dedicated software packages. ReDAQ® Shape for the MAQ20 is ideal for data acquisition applications, while IPEmotion definitively represents the next step in test and measurement software.”

Renowned for their accuracy, reliability, cost-effectiveness, and overall outstanding performance, the Dataforth families of SCM5B isolated analog signal conditioning modules and SCM7B isolated process control signal conditioning modules provide ±0.03% accuracy and 1500Vrms transformer isolation. The 250+ different 5B modules offer 3-way isolation, 5V supply voltage, and “Lab” performance; the 202 7B modules provide 2-way isolation, 24V supply voltage, and “Industrial” performance. All modules are CSA C/US Certified and CE and ATEX Compliant. Custom modules are available.
The SensorLex® 8B isolated analog signal conditioning modules offer Instrument Class® performance in miniature size – making them ideal for embedded or portable applications. Since being introduced in 2005, the 8B line has grown to 20 family groups and 135 different modules, which provide ±0.05% accuracy, ±0.02% linearity, and 1500Vrms transformer isolation. All are C-UL-US Listed and CE Compliant with ATEX Compliance pending. Custom modules are available.
The SCM9B family is made up of isolated, intelligent, software configurable sensor-to-computer and computer-to-analog output modules. All are CE Compliant.
The miniature SCMD digital I/O modules provide a rugged, protective isolation barrier, effective to 4kV, between the field and the computer system. They are all UL Listed, CSA Certified, and CE Compliant.
The MAQ®20, Dataforth’s 3rd generation data acquisition system, offers the industry’s lowest cost per channel, as well as integral PID loop control, 1500Vrms channel-to-bus isolation, ±0.035% system accuracy, and two dedicated software packages for data acquisition or test & measurement applications. This powerful, flexible, compact system is made up of DIN rail-mounted, programmable, multi-channel signal conditioning input, output, and communication modules. It is ideal for test and measurement, factory and process automation, machine automation, military and aerospace, power and energy, environmental monitoring, and oil and gas applications.
The 8B isoLynx® SLX300 data acquisition system works with SensorLex® 8B modules and builds on the proven reliability of the SLX200 system. It can be configured with up to 12 isolated analog input channels, 4 isolated analog output channels, and 8 isolated digital I/O channels. The system also offers 7 advanced special functions and 4 alarm states. It can be panel or DIN rail mounted. ReDAQ® Shape for the SLX300 is an out-of-the-box DAQ software that provides the easiest and most efficient development tool to create, save, and open graphical user interface projects as well as to test, process, and analyze acquired data.
The SCM5B isoLynx® SLX200 is an intelligent, high speed, fully isolated data acquisition system that works with Dataforth’s SCM5B modules and implements industry standard Modbus RTU and TCP protocols. The system offers maximum flexibility of analog and digital I/O selection, and all I/O is channel-to-channel and input-to-output isolated. The analog I/O modules offer ±0.03% accuracy, ±0.005% linearity, and are certified to CSA C/US, CE, and ATEX requirements.
Dataforth’s high performance DSCA modules are DIN rail mount isolated signal conditioners that provide Instrument Class® performance, true 3-way isolation, and ±0.03% accuracy. They are C-UL-US Listed, and CE and ATEX Compliant. Custom DSCA modules are available.
Other products include CE Compliant 4 to 20mA DSCL, DSCP, and SCTP industrial loop isolators and transmitters. These offer passive, active, and programmable options and include the compact 6.2mm DSCP dip-switch configurable signal converters, which are ideal when space is limited. The DSCT loop powered 2-wire transmitters provide ±0.03% accuracy, 1500Vrms transformer isolation, and Instrument Class® performance in a DIN rail mount package. They are CSA C/US Certified and CE Compliant.
Dataforth’s family of CE Compliant industrial data communication products protects equipment from damage due to power surges, transients, and lightning; it includes line drivers and converters for RS-232, RS-422, and RS-485 systems.
