Eurocard Part-Number Suffixes
Suffixes: Determine the model number you need
Microstar Laboratories Eurocard part numbers include a three-character suffix that holds information on how the Eurocard connects to a DAP and on how it connects to the world outside. To use this information, refer to the table below. It partially decodes the three-character suffixes for all Eurocards listed for sale. Each row shows a suffix preceded by appropriate cable/connection to a DAP, followed by enclosure[:<number of slots>] and type of connector for sensor/actuator. (For bare boards, refer to the product description for type of connector.) Some customers use ribbon cables in special cases. However, the cables listed here fit every case, and most people choose them.
Example 1: The suffix E2C in the part number MSXB028-05-E2C, for example, indicates that the MSXB028 Simultaneous Sampling board (hardware rev 5) connects to a DAP through the analog backplane in an Industrial Enclosure (IE) like the MSIE002-06. It samples inputs applied to 20 BNC connectors in a front panel that covers five slots. (A full-size backplane has 20 available slots; a half-size backplane has 9.)
Example 2: The suffix C3C in the part number MSXB039-01-C3C, indicates that this Eurocard, the MSXB039 Opto Isolation board (hardware rev 1), occupies a Single Board Enclosure (SBE) with 20 BNC connectors on its front panel, and connects to a DAP through a 100-line cable, an MSCBL054.
