VME390

RTD Temperature Measurement Module VMEbus

The VME390 is a 24-channel RTD Measurement 6U VMEbus board that provides high-accuracy temperature measurement data for industrial automation applications to ensure both product quality and safety.

The VME390 features 24 independent channels configurable for 2-wire, 3-wire, and 4-wire high-accuracy PT100, PT200, PT500 or PT1000 measurement channels, each with programmable alarm limits on which an interrupt can be issued.

Quad local DSPs (TMS320C203) perform linearization, auto-calibration and alarm-limit checking. Sensor-data is available in °C, °F, K and Ohms. All inputs are optically isolated from the system.

This VMEbus board has a 6U form and is also available as 3U VMEbus.
