Industrial signal filtering
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

current outputs and a 26-pin connector for high-level single-
ended voltage outputs to the user's equipment.

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

signal conditioning modules which amplify, isolate, filter and
protect analog input voltages and provide simultaneous
precision voltage and current outputs. Each module performs
complete signal conditioning, including isolating (+1500V peak
input-to-output and power) and protecting their computer side
outputs from damage and loss of signal integrity, and shielding
their inputs from damage from field-side over-voltage faults up
to 220V rms. The current output withstands 130V rms without
damage and interfaces user equipment through screw terminals
located on the 3B Series backplane. Each plug-in, mix-and-

programmable Models 3B30-00 and 3B31-00, enable 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.
zero-scale input voltage is subtracted from the input signal to
the input range. This is ideal fro expanded-scale applications
requiring high-resolution measurement of a selected portion of
an input signal. For users convenience, the zero and span can be
factory configured to meet custom range needs (Models 3B30-
CUSTOM and 3B31-CUSTOM) or can be externally
programmed (Models 3B30-00 and 3B31-00) via user supplied
resistors inserted in the optional AC1310 plug-on ranging card.
Internal low-pass filtering with a 4Hz cutoff (-3dB) two-pole
Butterworth filter enhances both 60dB normal-mode and 160
dB common-mode rejection at 50/60 Hz, enabling accurate
measurement of small signals in high electrical noise.
proprietary modulation technique for linear, stable and reliable
performance. The differential input circuit on the field side is
fully floating, eliminating the need for any input grounding. A
demodulator on the computer side of the signal transformer
recovers the original signal, which is then filtered and buffered
to provide a low-noise, low-impedance output voltage; this
output also drives a voltage-to-current (V/I) converter to
provide a simultaneous current output for interfacing versatility.
