DESCRIPTION
Each DI- 5B38- 100 programmabl e strai n gage i nput
modul e provi des a si ngl e channel of strai n gage i nput
whi ch i s fi l tered, ampl i fi ed, and converted to a hi gh
l evel vol tage output. The modul es are easi l y
confi gured usi ng a Wi ndows based spreadsheet styl e
setup program, whi ch accepts user i nputs and
communi cates to the modul es usi ng a standard RS-
232 seri al port. Standard communi cati ons ports 1- 4
can be used and the baud rate i s fi xed at 4800. Each
modul e has a uni que seri al number stored i n EEROM
that i s used for addressi ng up to 64 modul es i n a
system. However, the seri al number i s user program-
mabl e and can be set as an al pha- numeri c l abel . Ei ght
and 16- channel backpanel s are avai l abl e whi ch have
the communi cati on ci rcui try for i nterfaci ng to the
modul es and mul ti - droppi ng mul ti pl e backpanel s.
Once confi gured, the modul e(s) may be used i n the
same backpanel or removed and used i n any standard
“ 5B” backpanel .
The DI- 5B38- 100 can i nterface to transducers wi th a
nomi nal resi stance of 120Ω to 10KΩ. Input confi gura-
ti ons of ful l bri dge, hal f- bri dge or quarter bri dge can
be accomodated by sel ecti ng or de- sel ecti ng the
i nternal preci si on bri dge compl eti on resi stors. Strai n
gage exci tati on i s provi ded from the modul e by a
stabl e 5V source.
The key feature of the DI- 5B38- 100 modul e i s the
remote programmabl e bal ance and gai n. The ‘Bal ance’
command can be used to offset bri dge i mbal ances and
to provi de pedestal offsets up to +/ - 100% span wi th
16- bi t resol uti on. The ‘Gai n’ command can be used to
program the modul e gai n over the wi de range from 5
to 2500 wi th 12- bi t resol uti on. One of four preci si on
i nternal shunt cal i brati on resi stors wi th val ues of
20KΩ, 40KΩ, 80KΩ and 200KΩ can be sel ected
to si mul ate a ful l scal e condi ti on for setti ng modul e

When confi guri ng the modul es, a Wi ndows
spreadsheet- l i ke software i nterface i s used to enter the
confi gurati on parameters on a channel - by- channel
basi s. A secondary spreadsheet i s used to l i st modul e
seri al numbers for channel s 1- 64. Modul es 1- 64 are
di vi ded i nto 8 groups of 8 for l ocal i zed programmabi l -

addressed to i ndi vi dual modul es, groups of 8
modul es, or to al l 64 modul es. Among other thi ngs,

saved to a fi l e so modul es can be easi l y returned to

programmed to match previ ousl y programmed
modul es.
