General Info

The B-Engine(BE) is a C/C++ programmable controller with +-10V bipolar analog inputs. It is intended for industrial control, power-line monitoring, high-speed data acquisition. With its high reliability and low cost, it is ideal for industrial OEM applications. A true bipolar, simultaneous sampling ADC (AD7606, 16-bit or AD7607, 14-bit) can accept +-10V or +-5V true bipolar analog signals while sampling at throughput rates up to 200 kSPS for all 8 analog inputs. Each analog input contains second-order antialansing filter, sample-and-hold amplifier and clamp protection tolerant up to +-16.5V.

With 1M ohm analog input impedance, a 7KV ESD rating, and sustaining up to +-10 mA input current, the analog inputs are designed to survive in a rough industrial environment. The BE allows simultaneous sampling on all eight analog inputs. Via 16-bit parallel interface, DMA operation can transfer 8 16-bit data into RAM or CompactFlash cards with low software overhead.

A 4 channel, 16-bit parallel DAC (DAC8544) can be installed. Its on-chip output amplifier allows rail-to-rail voltage output (0-5V). A Fast Ethernet Module can be installed to provide 100M Base-T network connectivity.

The BE supports mass storage CompactFlash cards with Windows compatible FAT16 file system. The BE features 16-bit ACTF Flash, battery-backed SRAM (256 KW), timers, PWMs, 20+ PIOs, EEPROM, two UARTs, counters, and a watchdog timer. PIO pins are multifunctional and user programmable. A real time clock (RTC27423, Epson) is available. The BE is powered via regulated 5V.

Features

Worry about ADC inputs damaged in the field due to input signal over voltage, reverse polarity, power surge ?

The ADC on the B-Engine is a true bipolar, simultaneous sampling ADC (AD7606, 16-bit or AD7607, 14-bit). The ADC can accept +-10V or +-5V true bipolar analog signals while sampling at throughput rates up to 200 kSPS for all 8 analog inputs.

Each analog input contains second-order antialansing filter, sample-and-hold amplifier and clamp protection tolerant up to +-16.5V. With 1M ohm analog input impedance, a 7000V ESD rating, and sustaining up to +-10 mA input current.
