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

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

scale measurements of a selection portion of an input signal.
The differential input circuit on the field side is fully floating,
eliminating the need for any input grounding. Signal isolation
by transformer coupling uses a proprietary modulation
technique for linear, stable and reliable performance. 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.
