Moore Industries has met the requirement for very narrow instruments with the MiniMoore family of multi-channel analogue signal conditioners.
MiniMoore delivers up to four low-cost I/O channels in a 25.4mm footprint, which equates to 6.35mm per channel.
Providing 1,000Vrms input-to-output and channel-to-channel signal isolation, the complete MiniMoore family can be used to isolate, convert, boost and split analogue signals.
Despite their small size, MiniMoore signal conditioners feature rugged, industrial metal housings.
The metal housing provides protection against the unpredictable and harmful effects of radio- frequency (RFI) and electromagnetic (EMI) interference that is common in most industrial environments.
Sources of RFI/EMI include walkie-talkies, motors, transformers and even fluorescent lights.
MiniMoore signal conditioners come in compact 2-channel and 4-channel models.
The 2-wire (loop-powered) and universal AC/DC 4-wire (line/mains-powered) versions accommodate every available industrial power supply.
On the 2-channel versions, a conveniently located DIP-switch is used to select analogue input types of 4-20mA, 0-5V, 1-5V or 0-10V.
A low-cost 4-channel model accepts 4-20mA inputs.
Both 2- and 4-channel models provide isolated 4-20mA outputs, ready for interface with an indicator, recorder, DCS, PLC or PC-based Scada system.
