Acromag--New Signal Conditioning Catalog includes new remote I/O modules with Modbus network interface
Wixom, MI: Acromag recently released their new 200-page product catalog featuring new Modbus analog and discrete I/O modules, as well as a broad range of transmitters, isolators, and alarms. Application notes and drawings demonstrates how Acromag’s newest products can be used to reduce costs, improve performance, and increase safety. A price list, easy-to-use product selection tables, and diagrams help engineers select and specify the correct product for their application. Acromag’s comprehensive offering of accessories includes mounting racks, industrial enclosures, power supplies, and cables to complete the installation.

The new BusWorks™ 900MB series low-cost remote I/O modules interface analog and discrete I/O signals to a Modbus network. The multi-channel I/O modules are only one inch wide and mount compactly on a DIN rail. With up to four channels per analog module ($350) or twelve discrete channels per module ($275), these modules provide a more cost-effective solution for monitoring several I/O points than block I/O devices designed for high-volume signal processing. A variety of analog input sensors are supported including DC voltage, DC current, thermocouple, RTD, and frequency/pulse signals. Built-in relay trips enable local limit alarms and on/off control either under host control or independent of the network. Analog output modules transmit DC voltage or current signals to chart recorders, display devices, variable frequency drives, positioners, or motors based on data received from the network. Discrete I/O modules monitor and control on/off and high/low levels of industrial equipment and electronic devices.

Acromag’s newest transmitter and alarm products apply the latest microcontroller technologies to offer superior performance, additional capabilities, easier configuration and maintenance, and lower overall costs. High-resolution A/D converters and digital signal processing techniques increase accuracy and improve immunity to noise and temperature drift. Internal microprocessors are capable of performing calculations that previously required expensive controllers or software. Some models have menu-driven software to configure input/output ranges, setpoint limits, and other functions. Other units automatically sense the input type while pushbuttons simplify output calibration. Multi-channel units are ideal for tight budgets and tight fits with up to four I/O channels in a single, inch-wide enclosure for as little as $250 or just $62.50 per channel.

Acromag, a multimillion dollar international corporation, has been manufacturing and developing measurement and control products for more than 45 years. They offer a complete line of industrial I/O products including process instruments, signal conditioning equipment, data acquisition boards, distributed I/O systems, and communication devices.
