Data Translation has launched a more powerful version of its Voltpoint and Temppoint instruments for battery and temperature measurement.

By incorporating proprietary ISO-Channel technology, users can achieve high-accuracy analogue voltage readings, regardless of environmental conditions.

ISO-Channel technology eliminates noisy results or ground loops by using galvanic isolation to guarantee 1,000V isolation between each sensor input, preserving accuracy on all input channels.

It is said to offer increased reliability over older relay front-end designs by implementing a separate DC-DC converter on each 24-bit A/D converter for all 48 channels.

Common-mode noise and ground-loop problems are eliminated with ISO-Channel design.

Sensors at varying ground reference are individually referenced to their own level, even at vastly differing voltages, including transients to thousands of volts.

The all solid-state design provides digital transfer of sensor data with optical and transformer isolation, resulting in preserved accuracy on all sensor input – regardless of grounding conditions.

Voltpoint and Temppoint measurements instruments have ISO-Channel floating front ends, with each input connected to an individual, floating A/D converter with on-board signal conditioning.

Voltpoint is a precision measurement instrument designed and newly enhanced for measuring voltage inputs of +/-10, +/-100 and +/-400V.

Applications include: hybrid-electric vehicle (HEV) battery performance; li-ion cell measurements; high-voltage, precision battery stack or cell-balance measurements; high-power portable equipment; motor-shunt measurements; commercial and military hybrid vehicles; fuel-cell stacks; high-voltage data acquisition; and battery back-up monitoring.

Temppoint is a series of temperature-measurement instruments designed for high accuracy and industrial robustness.

These instruments allow direct thermocouple, RTD and precision voltage or resistance measurements with a PC.

Temperature and voltage values can be viewed, graphed or exported to Excel and allow limit checking for control or monitoring of a process for manufacturing or research applications.

USB and Ethernet (LXI) versions are available.
