The MSXB 065 Signal Conditioning Expansion Board provides filtered analog signal conditioning for voltage signals for Data Acquisition Processor systems. Each board has

  • differential inputs
  • jumper-selectable simultaneous sampling
  • jumper-selectable gains of 1, 5, and 25
  • fourth-order anti-alias filters, cutoff frequencies from 100 Hz to 50 kHz

Signal Conditioning Expansion Boards are used in multichannel spectral analysis and other applications that require simultaneous acquisition of several channels. MSXB 064 and MSXB 065 usually are used for applications that require interchannel phase measurements such as applications that perform transfer function computations. These boards eliminate the phase error introduced by sequential sampling.

Sampling introduces alias errors when the input signals contain energy at frequencies above half of the sampling rate. In addition to simultaneous sampling, the MSXB 065 board has fourth-order lowpass filters to eliminate the aliasing errors inherent in sampling under these conditions.

The MSXB 065 Signal Conditioning Expansion Boards each have 8 differential input channels and 8 differential outputs to a DAP board. Each channel on MSXB 065 has a four-pole analog lowpass filter on a daughterboard; the daughterboard can be changed to adjust the cutoff frequency. The available cutoff frequencies are 100 Hz, 250 Hz, 500 Hz, 1 kHz, 2.5 kHz, 5 kHz, 10 kHz, 25 kHz, 50 kHz.

Each Microstar Laboratories DAP board has an onboard processor with built-in filtering commands. By applying onboard digital filters to the output data from MSXB 065, it is possible to construct a wide range of filter responses, including very sharp lowpass filters.

The MSXB 065 provides signal conditioning expansion for Analog Backplane systems. The Signal Conditioning Expansion Board is compatible with Microstar Laboratories Industrial Enclosures and the MSXB 030-01 and MSXB 031-01 Analog Backplanes.
