The 6B Series delivers sensor-to-host signal-conditioning for
www.DataSheet4U.com remote applications. Software-configurable for a wide variety of
sensor types, including: analog input, analog output, and digital
I/O, the 6B Series is intended for remote data acquisition,
machine monitoring, remote energy management and process
monitoring and control applications.
Including transformer-based isolation, ranging, linearization,
A/d conversion and RS-232C/RS-485 serial communication for
up to 256 channels per serial port, the 6B Series modules and
boards are a complete, low-cost interface between computers
and analog signals.
All 6B Series input/output modules are fully encapsulated and
identical in pin-out and size, facilitating their ability to be mixed
and matched with all other 6B Series modules on the same
backplane. The 6B Series is fully rated over the industrial
temperature range of -25oC to +85oC.
Each 6B Series module and board is a complete
microcontroller-based process monitoring and control system,
with all calibration, address and linearizing parameters stored in
non-volatile memory. Being microcontroller-based, 6b Series
modules can be configured for various sensor types, including
RTD and thermocouple, and a wide variety of input ranges. This
reduces the number of different modules that need to be used
6B50-1 / 6B50-2
in a given application and carried in inventory.

Designed for industrial applications, the 6B Series modules
incorporate transformer-based isolation with surface-mount
manufacturing technology – providing increased reliability at
low cost. The compact, rugged 6B Series analog modules can be
mixed and matched on a 16-channel backplane for high density,
remote process monitoring and control.
Communications between backplanes, modules and host is in
ASCII over an RS-232C link or RS-485 bi-directional serial bus.
Circuitry to convert RS-232C to RS485 is built into the 6B
backplane. Baud rates are software programmable, with speeds
up to 19.2 K Baud.
The 6B Series digital subsystem communication is compatible
with the overall 6B Series communication protocol. Each digital
I/O board can be configured for its address, baud rate and
checksum status. Connection to the 16 and 24-channel solid
state relay backplanes is by a 50-conductor ribbon cable. This
enables interfacing with input and outputs from 4 V to 240 V.
Power control modules are also available that can switch up to
3A and come with a variety of ratings for low voltage DC up to
