The VME-3418 board is an isolated, 8-channel analog input board which provides complete excitation and signal conditioning for strain gauges and resistance temperature detectors (RTDs). Isolation is provided up to 1,000 VDC in two groups of four channels with each group isolated from the other group and from the VMEbus.

  • Constant current or constant voltage bridge excitation
  • Open sensor detection
  • Individual sensor excitation for each channel
  • Four-, three-, or two-wire resistance temperature detectors (RTDs); prescaled RTD ranges available
  • Full, half, or quarter strain gauge bridges, with on-board bridge completion
  • Isolated to 1,000 VDC or 700 VRMS in two groups of four channels
  • 8 isolated strain gauge and RTD signal conditioning channels
  • Input ranges selectable from ± 10 mV to ± 10 V
  • Optional low pass input filters; 4, 40, or 400 Hz
  • Buffered high-level analog outputs
