2-channel Analog Input, 1-channel Digital Input and 4-channel Digital Output data acquisition module, supports Strain Gauge, Voltage Input and Current Input. Communicable over Modbus RTU and RS-485. Supports operating temperatures between -25 to 75°C (-13F ~ 167F).
In the industrial environment, there are numerous examples where force needs to be converted into a measurable electrical output. In most cases, a strain gauge or a load cell can be used. But the question is, how do we then deal with these electrical output measurements? In this situation, the I-7016 is definitely the No. 1 choice. Not only can the module process data from a load cell or a strain gauge, it also features linear mapping that can be used to directly convert the resulting data into weight via a user-defined correspondent table. The I-7016 supports full-bridge strain gauges and provides 2 Analog Input channels, 1 excitation voltage output channel, 1 Digital Input channels and 4 Digital Output channels. The module provides a programmable input range (±15 mV, ±50 mV, ±100 mV, ±500 mV, ±1 V, and ±2.5 V) and each Analog Input channel can be individually configured. Excitation voltage output can be in the range of 0 ~ +10 V, with a 40 mA driving efficiency. Digital Output channels can also be set as high or low alarm outputs. The M-7016 supports both the Modbus RTU and DCON protocols, which can be configured via software, and all hardware specifications are the same as the I-7016.
