The company's signal-conditioning expansion boards for its DAP boards are designed to make it easy to implement signal conditioning in data acquisition systems. MSXB 064 and MSXB 065 provide differential instrumentation amplifiers with optional sample-and-hold circuits and jumper-selectable gains of 1, 5, and 25. MSXB 065 also includes fourth-order anti-alias filters. They can eliminate alias frequencies from acquired data, and they slot into a backplane in a standard industrial enclosure.

For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
