Analog FlexPort

Models

  • FP-4A: 4 ports
  • FP-8A: 8 ports

Device Support

  • Collect data from virtually any analog device

Connectivity

  • Each input is setup individually with settings for resolution and engineering units (the value that the voltage represents)
  • Analog input +/-10 vdc and/or 4-10 mA inputs
  • Simultaneously combines the signal from multiple tools and converts it to a standardized format (RS232 serial) for collecting into WinSPC
  • 16 bit resolution

Cabling

  • Standard 5 pin DIN connectors for ease of use

Indicators

  • Front panel display includes multiple Data Send LED's to signal successful data sending
  • LED's turn on when data is requested; automatically turn off when data has been sent

Sending data
Models 4A and 8A offer two ways to request a reading (Data Send) to be sent to your PC:

  • Footswitch jack (contact closure)
  • Host commands from the PC

Data send capability

  • Trigger a static or dynamic (TIR) reading
  • Trigger all or any combination of ports
  • Send serial requests to a gauge
  • Notify a PC that a data request has occurred

Pass-thru port
additional (DB9M) port

  • Connect directly to a serial gauge and extract 1 to 5 readings from the output
  • Used as a backplane for connecting interfaces to the PC
  • Uses standard cable to connect to the PC; will combine all FlexPort products (digital, serial, analog, display, and more) for up to 99 inputs.
