Precision Filters, Inc. is excited to announce the release of the new SCB-2U-16FA-UNV to its lineup of high-performance stand-alone signal conditioners that is designed to precisely measure temperature, pressure, and voltage inputs in aerospace applications such as rocket propulsion testing.
The SCB-2U-16FA-UNV is a programmable 16-channel universal signal conditioner designed for RTDs, silicon diodes, 4-20 mA output sensors, or any voltage output device up to 60 V. The balanced differential input, low-noise gain stages, and programmable 4-pole low-pass filter remove aliases and maximize dynamic range for an attached A/D converter system.
The SCB-2U-16FA-UNV is packaged in a compact 2U rack-mounted enclosure for versatility and durability. High-quality front-panel 6-pin 38999 circular input connectors provide the inputs for each channel, with additional BNC connectors for testing, monitoring, and other diagnostics. Analog channel outputs on the rear panel are mass terminated to industry standard 37-pin D-shell connectors for easy connection to A/D converter inputs.
The SCB-2U-16FA-UNV is a fully programmable unit that is controlled by either high-level remote commands or an easy-to-use Windows-based graphical user interface. The software provides intuitive control panels for setting the mode and cutoff frequencies of the unit’s LP4FP filter module, as well as the gain of the amplifier stages. The software includes real-time monitoring reports for system performance and health, along with numerous quality-control checks that can be initiated at the push of a button.
When purchased with Option F, the SCB-2U-16FA-UNV includes built-in test hardware and software to enable NIST traceable system calibration on site without the need to remove the system from an equipment rack. The test subsystem includes GUI control and a 3rd party instrument package. The Option F test subsystem enables Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT) to be performed on site with the same rigor as those done at the factory. The SCB FAT verifies filter and amplifier frequency response, gain accuracy, AC coupling, noise, common-mode rejection ratios (CMRR), excitation levels, and maximum signal levels.
