SCM7B22 voltage output modules accept input signals in the ±10V range from the process control system. The signal is isolated, buffered, and filtered to provide a unity gain field voltage output.

These modules incorporate a five-pole filtering approach to maximize both time and frequency response by taking advantage of both Thomson (Bessel) and Butterworth characteristics. One pole of the filter is on the process control system side of the isolation barrier; four are on the field side.

After the initial process control system-side filtering, the input signal is chopped by a proprietary chopper circuit and transferred across the transformer isolation barrier, suppressing transmission of common mode spikes and surges. The signal is then reconstructed and filtered for field-side output.

Modules accept a wide 19 - 29VDC power supply range (+24VDC nominal). Their compact packages (2.13"x1.705"x0.605" max) save space and are ideal bfor high channel density applications. They are designed for easy DIN rail mounting using any of the "-DIN" backpanels.

Frequently Asked Questions


How do the SCM7B22 and SCM7B41 differ?
The main difference is the SCM7B41 is an input module and the SCM7B22 is an output module.
This means that.

The 7B41 module has its input on the isolated field side of the module connect to it through screw terminal blocks. The 7B41 module has its output on the system and power supply side of the module connect to it through DB-25 connector (SCM7BP01, SCM7BP02, SCM7BP04, SCM7BP08, and SCM7BP16).

The 7B22 module has its output on the isolated field side of the module connect to it through screw terminal blocks.
The 7B22 module has its input on the system and power supply side of the module connect to it through DB-25 connector (SCM7BP01, SCM7BP02, SCM7BP04, SCM7BP08, and SCM7BP16).

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

Analog Devices announced a last time buy and discontinuance of their signal conditioning modules. Can I replace them with Dataforth signal conditioning modules?
Yes, in general, Dataforth signal conditioning modules are a direct replacement for all Analog Devices signal conditioning modules. e.g. "SCM5B35-xx: Linearized 4-Wire RTD Input Modules" will replace Analog Devices "5B35: Isolated 4 Wire RTD Input Signal Conditioning Module".

Please note that Dataforth signal conditioning modules are RoHS II compliant.

For SCM7B22 modules when I give LabVIEW (or other DAQ software) an output command, I get no output from the backpanel, why?
That’s because the SCM7B22 and the SCM7B39 are output modules, are connected the reverse of input modules, they have their inputs on the system side (power supply side) of the backpanel. They provide their output on the isolated field side of the backpanel.

Can SCM7B22 drive +/-10V, 2.5mA input with 0-200Hz sine wave?
“I am generating a sine voltage signal with frequency range 0-200Hz, +/-10V using a national instruments module NI 9263 with current drive capability of 1mA. The power amplifier I am driving the sine wave generated with has an input impedance of 4K ohms .(so for a 10V sine wave input to the amplifier, it will send 2.5mA to drive it).

I am trying to double check if the SCM7B22 would be suitable for my application since it has output current capability of +/-20mA.”

It was confirmed that the SCM7B22 would be suitable for his application. I also asked him to keep in mind the 7B22 has a 400Hz bandwidth and the filter is already attenuating slightly at 200Hz. At 200Hz, the output amplitude will be about 91.4% of the input amplitude (about 8.6% attenuated).

How do I convert an RMS voltage to its corresponding peak voltage?
To convert an RMS voltage to its corresponding peak voltage, you simply take the RMS voltage value and multiply it by the square root of 2, or roughly 1.414.

For example, 1500Vrms corresponds to a peak voltage of 1500 * 1.414 = 2121 Vp

Is the SCMXPRT-003 DIN rail mountable?
The SCMXPRT-001 has an option for DIN rail mounting (part number: SCMXPRT-001D) but the SCMXPRT-003 does not. Instead, it can be mounted on the SCMXRK-002 which is a 19 inch metal rack for mounting the SCMXPRT-003 as well as various Dataforth backpanels and the SCMXIF interface board.

If the input range of my signal conditioner is -1V to +1V and the output range is 0 to 10V, does this mean that it ignores polarity?
A signal conditioner with these I/O ranges does not mean that the module ignores the polarity of your voltage input. The output of voltage input modules are scaled linearly, meaning an input of -1V would correspond to an output of 0V, an input of 0V would correspond to an output of 5V, an input of +1V would correspond to an output of 10V, and so on.

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.

If I purchase a backplane with no CJC, will I still be able to use modules that require the CJC enable jumper to be installed?
Yes. Backplanes with no CJC will still come with the CJC enable installed on the backplane.
