5B40/5B41 Isolated, Wide Bandwidth Millivolt and Voltage Input

Introduction

The 5B40 and 5B41 are wide-bandwidth single-channel signal conditioning modules that amplify, protect, filter and isolate analog input voltages. Both modules provide a 10 kHz bandwidth which ideally suits them to measuring signals that vary rapidly with time. Examples include pressure inside a plastic injection molding machine, strain on an automobile chassis during a crash test and vibrations on a machine bearing shortly before failure.

The 5B40 and 5B41 protect the computer side from damage due to field-side overvoltage faults. All models withstand 240 V rms at their input terminals without damage thereby shielding computer-side circuitry from field-side overvoltage conditions. In addition, 5B40 and 5B41 Series modules are mix-and-match and hot swappable, so can be inserted or removed from any socket in the same backplane without disrupting system power.

Inside 5B40/5B41 Modules 

A chopper-stabilized input amplifier provides low drift and stable gain. At the amplifier input, a stable, laser-trimmed zero-scale input voltage is subtracted from the input signal to set the zero-scale value. For user convenience, the zero can be optionally factory-set to meet custom needs. This allows suppression of a zero-scale input value many times larger than the total span for precise expanded-scale measurements.

A single-pole anti-aliasing filter resides at each modules input. A three-pole, low-pass filter in the output stage sets the bandwidth and yields optimal noise performance for accurate measurement of small signals in high electrical noise.

Signal isolation by transformer coupling uses a proprietary modulation technique for linear, stable and reliable performance. The differential input circuit on the field side is fully floating, eliminating the need for any input grounding. A demodulator on the computer side of the signal transformer recovers the original signal, which is then filtered and buffered to provide a low-noise, low-impedance output signal. The output common must be kept within 3 Vdc of power common.

Convenience Features 

A series output switch eliminates the need for external multiplexing in many applications. The switch is turned on by an active-low enable input. The enable input should be grounded to power common if the output need not be switched.
