Universal current/voltage multiplexing input card with 16 user-installable 6:1 voltage attenuation resistors and 16 user-installable 250 Ohm current shunt resistors
Each DBK15 multiplexing input card provides 16 channels of current or voltage input to IOtech’s data acquisition systems. A system can accept up to 16 DBK15 cards, for a total of 256 potential analog input channels per system.
The DBK15 features a 16-channel multiplexer and a programmable gain input amplifier. Its durable component sockets accept resistors that configure each channel for either current-to-voltage conversion or for voltage attenuation.
The DBK15 is supplied with sixteen precision 250 Ohm resistors for making 4 to 20 mA measurements, and sixteen sets of 6:1 voltage dividers for accommodating up to ±30V* inputs.
The DBK15 can also accept other usersupplied resistor values, facilitating userselectable current-to-voltage conversion or
voltage attenuation factors.
When employed without resistors, the DBK15 provides 16 differential voltage inputs, which accommodate ±5V full scale inputs.
The DBK15’s input amplifier is software programmable for x1 or x2 gain per channel, and for unipolar 0 to +10V or bipolar -5 to +5V input per channel.
