PRODUCT OVERVIEW
The 3B Series of Signal Conditioning I/o Subsystems provide a
low-cost, versatile method of transferring analog transducer
signals to a data acquisition, monitoring or control system
without the inherent noise, non-linearity, drift and extraneous
voltages. The modules are designed to directly accept analog
signals from Thermocouples, RTD's, AC and DC Strain Gages,
Torque Transducers, Frequency Transducers, LVDTs, millivolt
or process current signals. The modules amplify, isolate,
linearize and convert the transducer output signals to
standardized analog inputs for high-level analog I/O
subsystems. The 3B Series Subsystem consists of a 10" relay
rack with universal mounting backplane and a family of plug-in
(up to 16 per rack) input and output signal conditioning
modules.
Eight and four channel backplanes are also available. Each
backplane incorporates screw terminals for sensor inputs and
current outputs and a 26-pin connector for high-level single-
ended voltage outputs to the user's equipment.
The input modules feature complete signal conditioning
circuitry optimized for specific sensors or analog signals and
provide two simultaneous high-level analog outputs: 0 to +10V
(or +10V) and 4-20 mA (or 0-20 mA).
FUNCTIONAL BLOCK DIAGRAM
Figure 1. 3B18 Functional Block Diagram
Output modules accept 0 to +10V (or +10V) single-ended
signals and provide an isolated 4-20 mA (or 0-20 mA) process
signal. All modules feature a universal pin-out and may be
readily hot-swapped under full power and interchanged without
disrupting field wiring.
The Analog Devices 3B Series Signal Conditioning Subsystem is
designed to easily handle signal conditioning problems in
measurement and control applications. Some typical uses are in
microcomputer-based data acquisition systems, programmable
controllers, analog recorders, dedicated control systems, and any
other applications where monitoring of temperature, pressure,
flow and analog signals are required. Since each input module
features two simultaneous outputs, the voltage output can be
used to provide an input to a microprocessor-based data
acquisition or control system while the current output can be
used for analog transmission, operator interface, or an analog
backup system.
Each input module is a single-channel signal conditioner which
plugs into a socket on the backplane and accepts its signal from
the input screw terminals. All input modules provide input
protection, amplification and filtering of the input signal,
accuracy of +0.1%, low drift of +1 uV/
o
C (low-level input
modules), and feature two high-level analog outputs that are
compatible with most process instrumentation. The isolated
input modules also provide +1500 V peak isolation.
The choice of a specific 3B module depends upon the type of
input signal. Input modules are available to accept millivolt, volt,
process current, thermocouple, RTD, AC and DC strain gage,
frequency and LVDT inputs. The voltage output of each module
is available from the system I/O connector while the current
output is available on the output screw terminals.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The 3B18 is a wideband (20kHz) single-channel signal
conditioning module which interfaces, amplifies, and filters
signals from balanced 4-arm full-bridge strain-gage bridges
with a resistance from 100 to 10 k, providing simultaneous
precision voltage and current outputs. The module provides two
user-selectable (via front-panel switches) bridge excitation
voltages: +10 V for bridges with a load impedance down to
300W or +3.33V for 120W bridges or others below 300W.
Module bandwidth is also user-selectable between 20 kHz and
100 Hz, with user-supplied filter capacitors installed in the
optional AC1310 ranging card. The 3B18 protects the computer
side from damage due to field-side over-voltage faults up to
130V rms. In addition, the current output withstands 130V rms
without damage and interfaces user equipment through screw
terminals located on the 3B Series backplane. The 3B18 is a
plug-in, mix-and-match, hot-swappable module which is easily
field calibrated via front-panel zero and span adjustments for
both voltage and current outputs.
3B Series Custom-Ranging Program
Externally-
programmable Model 3B18-00, enables the user to configure a
special input range by using the optional plug-on AC1310
ranging card, which houses user-supplied resistors to determine
zero and span. To facilitate selecting resistors, a Windows
program, 3B-CUSTOM, calculates resistor values based on the
user-desired input/output ranges.
A chopper-stabilized low-drift (+1uV/
o
C) input amplifier
assures long-term stability. For user convenience, the zero and
span can be factory configured to meet custom range needs
(Model 3B18-CUSTOM) or can be externally programmed
(Model 3B18-00) via user supplied resistors inserted in the
optional AC1310 plug-on ranging card.

+24 V dc loop power is required for driving the current output at loads up to 850
. If a current output load of 400
or less is applied, +15 V dc is sufficient for loop power. If only
voltage output is used, loop power is not required.

ESD CAUTION
ESD (electrostatic discharge) sensitive device. Electrostatic charges as high as 4000 V readily accumulate on the human
body and test equipment and can discharge without detection. Although this product features proprietary ESD
protection circuitry, permanent damage may occur on devices subjected to high energy electrostatic discharges.
Therefore, proper ESD precautions are recommended to avoid performance degradation or loss of functionality.
