Dataforth Corporation, Tucson, Arizona announces the introduction of its new DSCL24 DIN railnmount series of configurable multi-channel isolators. These isolators provide a simple low-cost solution for providing 2300Vrms-transformer isolation protection for analog signals. They are designed for preventing the transfer of interference voltages or currents and for breaking signal distorting ground loops. The DSCL24 can be ordered as a single channel, dual channel, or a one input and two output “splitter” in one package.

The DSCL24 provides 2300Vrms I/O isolation and 3700Vrms power supply to I/O isolation for all models. Two model versions are offered that accept universal power of either 24 to 60V AC/DC or 85 to 230V AC/DC, with the AC usage accepting 45 to 400Hz power. The single channel model has four user configurable jumpers that provide 36 different I/O settings. A unique snap-in tool allows quick extraction of the module’s circuit board to permit the user to reposition the jumpers for different I/O requirements. The multi-channel DSCL24 is factory configurable for up to 252 different configurations of process current or voltage inputs and outputs.

Accuracy over the entire operating range is better than ± 0.2%. The load resistance range is 0 to 600Ù in current mode and 2000Ù minimum in voltage mode. Bandwidth is 20Hz. Packaging is a narrow DIN rail case measuring only 0.69 inches (17.5mm) wide for high density mounting. Mounting tabs can be extended from the case for panel mount applications. Operating temperature is -25°C to +55°C, and storage temperature is -40°C to +70°C.
