Description

The iD Series signal conditioners combine the accuracy of laboratory instrumentation with the performance required by demanding industrial applications. The iD Series signal conditioners are ideal for those applications in Data Acquisition, Test & Measurement, Process Control, and Industrial Automation where accuracy, performance, and reliability are critically important. The iD Series signal conditioners mount on a 35mm DIN rail, and operate on any voltage between 10-32 DC power. (A matching 24 Vdc 850 mA switching power supply is also available.) The devices feature three-way isolation of up to 1800 V between the signal inputs, outputs, and power supply.

The iD series feature seven (7) models designed for each of the most widely measured signal inputs: Process (DC) Voltage and Current; Strain Gage; Thermocouples; RTD's; AC Voltage; AC Current; Frequency/Pulse. The iD series devices are designed to work directly with a variety of sensors and transducers; no other components are necessary. For sensors such as RTD's, strain gages, and some process transducers, precise stable excitation is provided directly from the iD module.

The iD series are available with two different types of signal outputs: Analog or Digital. The iDRN series provides a totally scalable analog output in DC voltage or current. The iDRX series provide a digital RS-485 output. Both iD Series signal conditioners are intelligent microprocessor based instruments that can be scaled and programmed by computer via serial communications, or over an Ethernet network.

iDRN SERIES ANALOG OUTPUT
The iDRN series feature a 0-10 Vdc, or 0-20 mA (including 4-20 mA) analog output signal that is typically scaled to be directly proportional to the input signal. It is an ideal component in a system with PLCs or PC's with analog data acquisition boards.
The iDRN series are an excellent choice for applications that demand an extra measure of accuracy and performance that is not possible with conventional "analog" signal conditioners or transmitters. Unlike conventional analog devices that are scaled by adjusting zero and span pots, the programmable, micro-processor based iDRN instruments are scaled precisely on a PC with free and simple Windows software. The iDRN modules connect directly to a PC's RS-232 Serial Communications port for programming and scaling. Once the module is configured, the parameters are saved in nonvolatile memory. The device can be disconnected from the PC, or the RS-232 output from the module can be used for continuous data acquisition in addition to the analog output.
Alternatively, the iDRN signal conditioner can be connected to a PC's Ethernet port or an Ethernet network using the EIT-D module as a Serial/Ethernet bridge.

FREE SETUP and CONFIGURATION
If an iDRN signal conditioner is not going to be connected to a computer, it can be ordered preconfigured by the factory at no extra charge. The user can select the input types, ranges and output scale, and OMEGA will program the instruments to those specific requirements in our calibration lab prior to shipment. For custom factory setup and scaling of the iDRN model, please specify the -FS option.

iDRX SERIES DIGITAL OUTPUT
The iDRX Series Signal Conditioners provide highly accurate digital outputs. Each module provides an RS-485 Serial output that can be transmitted directly to computers and other devices with serial communications capability, or converted to Ethernet. On an RS-485 bus, up to 32 modules can be connected over a distance of 1200 m (4000 ft) on a single pair of wires. With optional RS-485 repeaters, up to 254 modules may be connected to a single RS-485 port. The iDRX Series digital conditioners may be connected to an RS-485 bus using either screw terminator or RJ-12 connector.

ASCII AND MODBUS The user can select between an easy-to-use, straightforward ASCII protocol, or the popular MODBUS protocol found in many existing industrial installations. With the simple ASCII commands, writings programs using the iDRX does not require special drivers or libraries. In addition, many off-the-shelf software packages can be used with the iDRX devices without any programming. OMEGA also provides a number of useful programs and demos for the iDRX at no charge.

OPC Server and ACTIVE X CONTROLS
OMEGA offers an optional OPC Server (OLE for Process Control) and ActiveX Controls for the iDRX Series. These programs make it easy to integrate the iDRX devices with information systems using Active Containers such as Microsoft Visual Basic and Microsoft Excel as well as with popular OLE and OPC compliant data acquisition, process control, and industrial automation software from OMEGA®, Iconics, Wonderware, Intellution, Rockwell Automation, and GE Cimplicity among others.
