The new 9250/9251 amplifier generation unites all the features that make modern measurement data acquisition actually possible for the first time. Network-compatible, high-precision, user-friendly, smart and versatile: the combined system of amplifier module and Fieldbus controller can be integrated into any existing setup.
The Fieldbus controller delivers all signals exactly where they are needed, to be combined, checked and linked. With the available Fieldbus interfaces, you are flexible, perfectly connected and you save time, costs and other resources when linking to and integrating into existing systems. Due to the integrated measuring input, the use of a Fieldbus controller module is sufficient for single-channel applications. For multi-channel applications, the system can be expanded to up to 9 measuring channels.
Up to 8 bus-compatible model 9250 instrumentation amplifiers can be cascaded on the model 9251 Fieldbus controller. Automatic detection and addressing of the instrumentation amplifier modules allows easy expansion. By means of measuring input, the fieldbus controller can be operated as a stand-alone device.
Some applications require large amounts of measurement data to be acquired and transmitted within a very short time. Very fast PLC communication with high update rates is needed. To optimize data throughput, the model 9251 Fieldbus controller can transmit a whole data array with the last 32 measured values per channel. The scaled measured values are read simultaneously in the real-time data of the Fieldbus link.
