Dataforth Corporation of Tucson, Arizona, announces the introduction of its newest SCM5B module: the SCM5B48 isolated and field-configurable accelerometer input module.

Specific applications for the new SCM5B48 module include the following:

• Aircraft and Aerospace R&D

• Automotive and Other Vehicles

• Environmental, Strength-of-Materials

More generic applications for the SCM5B48 include:

• Any process, industrial or other, that requires precise measurement of acceleration. Gain settings of 1, 10, and 100 offer a simple interface to sensors with a wide range of sensitivity.

• Situations where space is crucial; the SCM5B48 module provides signal conditioning and flexibility in the smallest package available.

• Monitoring applications where AC/DC coupling and/or rejection of low and high frequency noise is important; selectable high-pass cutoff frequencies of 0.2Hz or 10Hz and selectable low-pass cutoff frequencies of 2.5kHz, 5kHz, 10kHz or 20kHz offer ample options to tune the filter characteristic for optimum performance.

• 1500Vrms Transformer Isolation

• ANSI/IEEE C37.90.1 Transient Protection

• Input Protection to 240Vrms Continuous

• Low Drift with Ambient Temperature

• -40°C to +85°C Operating Temperature Range

• 5V Power

• CSA and FM Approvals Pending

• CE Compliant

• Mix and Match Module Types on Backpanel
