V230 64-channel VME analog input module

Analog Input Module - V230
  • Multiplexed, 64-channel differential A/D converter
  • Each channel is independently programmable for input range and digital lowpass filtering
  • Input ranges of ± 102.4 mV, ± 1.024 volts, and ± 10.24 volts with 16-bit resolution
  • Common-mode rejection 80 dB typ, ± 12 volt common-mode range
  • Overload protected to ± 30 volts on all ranges
  • 15.625 KHz sample rate per channel, 1M s/s total
  • Programmable 200 Hz and 17 Hz filters. The 17 Hz filter notches 50/60 Hz and all harmonics
  • No realtime handshaking is required. Once channel parameters are set up, measurements appear in dual-port memory registers with VMEbus-speed access. Users can read digitized data at any time.
  • Optional test connector supports in-crate calibration check
  • Clearly labeled dipswitches set VME address; no jumpers, headers, or trimpots
  • Optional built-in self-test (BIST)

The V230 provides high channel-count data acquisition for dense monitoring applications. The 64 channels are individually programmable for both input range and filtering. The three input ranges slightly exceed ±10 V, ±1 V, and ±100 mV, allowing confident measurements all the way to the end of common signaling ranges. For low frequency applications, the programmable sinc2 lowpass filters provide excellent rejection of 50 Hz and 60 Hz harmonics without generating transient overshoots.

From the moment of power-on, with no configuration, the V230 begins scanning all 64 differential input channels and posting the results to VME memory space. Data is presented in real-time as a simple array of 64 values with no handshakes, interrupts, or driver calls required.

Optional built-in self-test provides an on-board voltage source that can be switched into any of the channels for verification, as well as the D9 OpenCal bus to allow verification against external equipment without disconnecting field-wiring connectors.
