Transmitters convert analog input signals to digital data .

Press Release Summary:



DIN-100 Sensor to Computer Modules transmit data via RS-485 to controller, which may be computer or other processor-based equipment. Modules measure temperature, pressure, voltage, current, digital input, or digital output signals. They perform all signal conditioning, scaling, linearization, and conversion to linearized ASCII data values or Modbus RTU data values. Address, baud rate, parity, and echo are selectable using commands over RS-485 port.

DIN-100 OMEGABUS: Din Rail Mount Digital Transmitters


The DIN-100 Sensor to Computer Modules are a family of data acquisition modules that convert analog input signals to digital data and transmit via RS-485 to a controller which may be a computer or other processor-based equipment. The modules can measure temperature, pressure, voltage, current, digital input or digital output signals. The modules provide direct connection to a wide variety of sensors and perform all signal conditioning,
scaling, linearization and conversion to either linearized ASCII data values or Modbus RTU data values. Features such as address, baud rate, parity, echo, etc., are selectable using simple commands over the RS-485 port.

The selections are stored in nonvolatile EEPROM which maintains data even after power is removed. The key to the DIN-100 Series is that the modules are easy to use. You do not need engineering experience in complicated data acquisition hardware. With these modules, anyone familiar with a personal computer can construct a data acquisition system. This modular approach to data acquisition is extremely flexible, easy to use and cost effective. Data is acquired on a per channel basis so you only buy as many channels as you need. The modules can be mixed and matched to fit your application. They can be placed remote from the host and from each other. You can string up to 247 modules on a twisted pair of wires by using RS-485 with repeaters. All
modules are supplied with screw terminal plug connectors. The connectors allow system expansion, reconfiguration or repair without disturbing field wiring. No charge utility software is included to make the DIN-100 modules easier to learn and use.

Price Starts at $140.
