For Measuring Amplifiers and Sensors. Get Connected.
Backplane in 5B technology: Up to eight measuring amplifiers, converters, output modules, or any other function modules can be plugged into the analog backplane AP8a. The variety of available 5B modules provides for the solution of the most specific measuring tasks - individual and simple.
5B Technology. Industrial Standard.
The pin assignment of the backplane integrated in the AP8a corresponds to the 5B module standard of Analog Devices and Burr Brown. An additional 0EX pin has been introduced for sensors requiring unipolar supply to be suitable for connection.
Most of the 5B modules feature galvanic isolation of the channels from each other and from the data acquisition and control system. This perfectly protects the whole system against high potentials and interferences.
The AP8a is operated with 5V or 9-40V optionally. The supply voltage is connected via screw-clamp terminals.
Signal Connection. Clamp. Plug-in. Ready.
Sensors or other voltage signals can comfortably be connected via 7-pin spring terminal blocks (ZU7ST, packaging unit = 8 pcs.), which are plugged in the relevant input connectors of the AP8a.
Connection to the DAQ System.
The amplifier outputs are available at a 16-pin pin plug connector. They are connected to the input lines of a data acquisition system. Combining the AP8a with a measuring card or DAQ system from bmcm makes a powerful measurement system.
DIN Rail Mounting.
The AP8a comes with a DIN rail carrier with bracket to be easily mounted on a standard DIN rail as commonly used in electrical installation.
The Small Option. You Have the Choice.
For all needing less channels: The analog backplane is also available as a 2-channel version AP2.
