DSCT32

Analog Current Input Transmitters

Each DSCT32 current input transmitter provides a single channel of analog input which is filtered, isolated, amplified, and converted to a process current output. Signal filtering is accomplished with a five-pole filter, which provides 80dB per decade of normal-mode rejection above 100Hz. An anti-aliasing pole is located on the field side of the isolation barrier, and the other four are on the process loop side. After the initial field-side filtering, the input signal is chopped by a proprietary chopper circuit. Isolation is provided by transformer coupling, again using a proprietary technique to suppress transmission of common mode spikes or surges.

Special input and output circuits on the DSCT32 transmitters provide protection against accidental connection of power-line voltages up to 240VAC and against transient events as defined by ANSI/IEEE C37.90.1. Signal and loop power lines are secured to the module using screw terminals, which are in pluggable terminal blocks for ease of system assembly and reconfiguration.

The modules have excellent stability over time and do not require recalibration, however, zero and span settings are adjustable up to ±10% to accommodate situations where fine-tuning is desired. The adjustments are made using potentiometers located under the front panel label and are non-interactive for ease of use.

FAQ

Due to resource constraints on my computer, I'm unable to open the three dimensional CAD models provided on your website. Does Dataforth provide two demensional CAD models for download as well?
Two dimensional CAD models can be generated upon customer request. Please contact Customer Service for assistance.
What is the MTBF for DSCT32?
The MTBF for DSCT32 is 624,000 hours.
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.
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 support@dataforth.com
Is an external conversion resistor required in order to use the DSCT32 module?
No, an external conversion resistor is not required in order to use the DSCT32 module. The current/voltage conversion is achieved by an internal resistor as shown in the block diagram in the data sheet.

An external conversion resistor in the case of the DSCT32 could be used to shunt off some of the current from the module and allow a larger input current range; then they could also be used with voltage input modules to convert a non-standard current range into an input voltage range.
