Frequently Asked Questions
Can Dataforth provide calibration reports for modules I purchased?
Yes we can provide calibration reports for the modules that you purchased.
You can either
a) visit https://www.dataforth.com/TestDataReport.aspx to search for Test Report Datasheets by Serial Number or
b) you can send us a list of model numbers and their serial numbers to email@example.com
Can terminals 6 & 8 on DSCP62 be connected together without damaging the unit?
Yes. However, keep in mind, when those terminals are not connected together, the module offers up to 1500Vrms isolation of the output section from the power section.
When those terminals are connected together, that isolation is cancelled, so the input of the device the module output is driving can no longer float.
Module still retains 1500Vrms withstand capability to the T/C or other type of input when pin 6 and 8 are tied together.
Can I create a custom 4-20mA output curve from a linear 4-20mA input signal with the DSCP81?
Yes, custom non-linear output curves can be configured from a linear input with the DSCP81 using the DSCX-557 software. The DSCX-787 and DSCX-587 cables are required to connect to the PC to configure the module.
How does the load resistance of a module affect the noise at the output?
Noise at the output of a module is independent of load resistance.
