The SCMPB01 16-channel backpanel (Figure 1) can accept any of the SCM5B analog modules in any mixture. It can be mounted on the SCMXRK-002 19-inch metal rack. The SCMPB01 has 16 non-addressable analog I/O signal channels which provides each module with it’s own analog bus. The module output switch is continuously “on” when using this backpanel and all sixteen module outputs are simultaneously accessible to high-speed data acquisition (ADC) boards. A set of inter-channel bridge jumpers permits connecting an input module’s output to an output module’s input, providing two levels of isolation. A temperature sensor is mounted on each channel to provide cold junction compensation for thermocouple input modules (see Figure 2 for schematic). Field connections are terminated with four screw terminals at each module site. Use system interface cable SCMXCA004-XX for connection to the host system.
