The MSXB 082 Isolated 16-Bit Analog Input Signal Interface (SI) Module provides

  • differential inputs
  • programmable gain
  • simultaneous sampling
  • channel-to-channel isolation

MSXB 082 provides isolated analog inputs for DAP systems. Use these SI modules to eliminate ground currents – a potential source of noise in your measurement and control signals – and eliminate timing skew.

The four onboard converters are synchronized to within a few nanoseconds of each other, and each one can convert an analog signal to a 16-bit data stream at up to 1.25M samples/second. The maximum sample rate per channel depends on the number of channels used.

  • 1 channel used: 1.25 M samples per second (s/s)
  • 2 channels: 1M s/s on each channel, 2M s/s aggregate
  • 3 channels: 667k s/s on each channel, 2M s/s aggregate
  • 4 channels: 500k s/s on each channel, 2M s/s aggregate

All inputs are differential, and each analog channel is isolated from all the others and from any other system component.

You can set the gain of each channel to 1, 2, 5, or 10 in software, and channels can have different gains. Each module offers high signal density and enables high channel counts.

Up to eight of these analog input SI modules can be connected to a single DAP board for a total of 32 simultaneously sampled isolated analog inputs. You can also use both MSXB 082 and MSXB 080 in the same system when some channels are high-speed, some channels lower speed. When combining MSXB 082 for high-speed inputs and MSXB 080 for other inputs, a system can have 64 simultaneously sampled isolated analog inputs.

SI modules connected to multiple DAP boards can be synchronized for more inputs or higher throughput. Contact Microstar Laboratories for more information.

MSXB 082-01-E3K is installed in an Industrial Enclosure and uses a DB-37 connector. Stand-Alone and Single-Board Enclosure models also are available.
