Data Translation Announces New Ethernet Data Acquisition Module Extending Precision Measurements up to 600V with 1000V Isolation

This technology, ISO-Channel™, guarantees that all signals are protected from environmental and system noise.

Marlboro, MA ─ September 11, 2012 ─ Data Translation, Inc. today announced the release of the DT8824-HV Ethernet module, extending ultra-accurate, high-stability measurements to high voltage ranges. The DT8824-HV features a standard full scale range of 600V, with input gains of 1, 8, 16, and 32 to provide effective ranges of: 600V, 75V, 37.5V, and 18.75V. The DT8824-HV provides 1000V galvanic isolation channel-to-channel on all analog input signals and to the host computer to protect signal integrity. This technology, ISO-Channel™, guarantees that all signals are protected from environmental and system noise.


Applications such as measuring battery stacks for bus vehicles, energy grid transfer from DC voltage to grid-ready AC voltage, and measurement of wind and solar equipment, have needed this capability to measure up to 600 volt ranges with appropriate isolation safeguards. Spiking caused by switching from discharge to charge at coasting puts energy back into the battery, further necessitating the need for isolation at these levels.

According to Fred Molinari, President and CEO, "The DT8824-HV enables new measurement limits for alternative energy measurements without the constraints of older equipment, and furthers the new power grid formation taking place around the world."

The DT8824 has held an industry leading position for the best accuracy and stability. These same attributes are now available with the higher voltage ranges of the DT8824-HV. Accuracy of 10ppm, temperature coefficient of 0.05V/° C, CMRR of greater than 150dB, 1.5ppm maximum noise, all at a sampling rate of up to 4800 Hz per channel.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
