Press Release Summary:
OMEGABUS D5000 Modules convert 4 analog input signals to engineering units and transmit in ASCII format to any host with standard RS-485 or RS-232C ports. They provide direct connection to sensors and perform all signal conditioning, scaling, linearization, and conversion to engineering units. Address, baud rate, parity, and echo are selectable using commands over communications port. Selections are stored in nonvolatile EEPROM.
Original Press Release:
D5000 OMEGABUS(R) Series Four Channel Sensor to Computer Interface Modules
The D5000 Four Channel Sensor to Computer Modules are a
family of complete solutions designed for data acquisition
systems based on personal computers and other processor-based equipment with standard serial I/O ports. The modules convert four analog input signals to engineering units and transmit in ASCII format to any host with standard RS-485 or RS-232C ports. These modules can measure temperature, voltage and current. The modules provide direct connection to a wide variety of sensors and perform all signal conditioning, scaling, linearization and conversion to engineering units. The modules contain no pots or switches to be set. Features such as address, baud rate, parity, echo, etc. are selectable using simple commands over the
communications port without requiring access to the module. The selections are stored in nonvolatile EEPROM that maintains data even after power is removed. You string up to 30 modules on one set of wires by using RS-485 with repeaters. The D5000 Series is completely hardware and software compatible with OMEGA's D1000, D2000, D3000 and D4000 series and may be mixed in any combination. All modules are supplied with screw-terminal plug connectors that allow systems expansion, reconfiguration or repair without disturbing field wiring.
