      • 12 bits resolution, 5ms settling time
      • Multiple output voltage ranges possible, optionally current outputs for 8 channels
      • Buffered outputs, short-circuit-proof
    • Industrial Standard
      • Safety of operation by electrical isolation between VMEbus and process environment
      • Proper wiring of analog outputs and analog parts power supply to the backplane via P2 and at the front panel

    Output Circuit

    The VME-DAC1612 is an interface board designed for the generation of up to 16 analog signals for process control purposes. Select output voltages 0...+5 V, 0...+10 V, ±5 V or ±10 V. Set the corresponding jumper on the board to make your selection. Use the potentiometers to adjust gain and offset. The VME-DAC1612 includes adjustments for bipolar voltages.

    Adapter Board

    Conversion of the output voltage (0...+10 V) into an output current (0...20 mA or 4...20 mA) is possible with option VME-DAC812-20mA for 4 or 8 channels.

    Electrical Isolation

    Fast magnetic coupling barriers IL715 and DC/DC-converters perform the electrical isolation between VMEbus and analog process section.

    Wiring

    The P2 connector links both the external power supply inputs of the analog section and the process signals to the system. esd electronics, Inc. recommends the option DAC1612-ADAPT1 or DAC1612-ADAPT2 for connecting the signals from P2 with ribbon cable to an industrial mounted module (according to DIN EN 50022) with terminal blocks. Two 34-pin post connectors on the front panel allow easy accessibility to the analog outputs.

    Software Support

    Simple commands control the VME-DAC1612 via VMEbus so that no driver is necessary. However, drivers for all popular operating systems such as Windows and LINUX are available.
