DT5

Enhanced 16 Discrete/Switch I/O Channels (±80 V, 625 mA/Ch.)

The DT5 module (the enhanced version) features 16 independent, isolated, programmable channels that can be used for input voltage measurements (±80 V), or as a bi-directional current switch (up to 500 mA per channel). When programmed as a switch with the switch closed, both the current through the switch and the voltage across the switch can be monitored. These modules include diode clamping on each channel. Clamping is useful for inductive loads, such as relays and short circuit protection. Additional features of the DT5 (Enhanced Version) are listed below.

Features
  • 16 channels available as inputs or outputs
  • Programmable for Input voltage or switch closure for each channel
  • Continuous background built-in-test (BIT) (during normal operation, status provided for channel health and operation feedback)
  • In bidirectional current switch mode, enhanced features can be used to trigger switch opening or closure using pulse width, number of pulses or pattern generation
  • Ability to read switch I/O voltage and current
  • Ability to handle switch closure currents of up to 625 mA DC
  • Automatic switch overcurrent protection, programmable to 625 mA max
  • Open Circuit Detection
  • Supports ‘dual turn-on’ (series channel output) applications (e.g. dual series ‘key’ missile launch control)
  • Clean, bounce-free switching
  • Enhanced DT5 Functionality Features: Additional Enhanced Input Mode Operation: Pulse Measurements, Transition Timestamps, Transition Counters, Period Measurement and Frequency Measurement. Additional Enhanced Output Mode Operation: In bidirectional current switch mode, enhanced features can be used to trigger switch opening or closure using pulse width, number of pulses or pattern generation

  • Switch Formats: Isolated bidirectional (AC/DC) MOSFET switch.
  • Switch Current: 0-625 mA per channel (load determined) / (±80 V peak)
  • Switch Impedance Open: 2 MΩ / (200 kΩ if/when Open Circuit Detect Logic enabled)
  • Switch Impedance Closed: 0.5 W typical, 1 W max.
  • Current Measurement: User can read AC/DC current through switch, independently for each channel, LSB=3 mA; Accuracy: The greater of ±10% of Signal or ±20 mA over temperature.
  • Measurement Update Rate: Each channel is updated every 10 µs.
  • Isolation: 500 V (between channels and each channel to system GND).
  • Power: 5 VDC/0.98 A max
  • Weight: 1.5 oz. (42 g)
