User’s Manual DRF Series
GENERAL INFORMATION
The DRF series of Isolated Signal
Converters, allow to convert process
signals, temperatures, electrical signals,
etc, to current loops or voltage signals for
further retransmision, while introducing
into the system galvanic isolation barriers
between the input, the output and the
power supply circuits.
The DRF series of Isolated Signal
Converters, offer an excellent relation
between signal conversion speed and
measurement accuracy. Offering up to a
0.2% accuracy and down to 70ms
response time, these units can process
information coming from probes or
transducers, in such a way that can be
quickly retransmitted in a fast and
accurate form to remote data acquisition
systems or PLC’s. The isolated signal
converters of the DRF series are ideal to
integrate into 12 bit data acquisition
systems.
Its powerful galvanic isolation of 3500 V
introduces high security to the measuring
systems, preventing the propagation of
those phenomenon which usually cause
damage, such as transient peaks or
energy shocks in any of the circuits of the
system. The galvanic isolation also acts
as a strong CE barrier. The decoupling
created between the circuits avoids
pernicious effects on the output, such as
ground loops or signal leaks, which distort
the acquired data and are extremely
difficult to isolate once introduced into the
signal.
The isolation offered by the DRF series
of Isolated Signal Converters is a 3 way
isolation. Thus, all the benefits exposed
above are applicable to any of the three
circuits composing the instrument : input,
output and power.
Recalibration of the instruments is realized
in a fast and easy way. Opening the front
cover grants access to the configuration
jumpers. Additional Span and Offset
potentiometers are directly accessible
from the frontal part. These potentiometers
are highly decoupled, minimizing the
iterations needed to obtain a correct
adjustment.
In order to obtain a higher and quickest
benefit of the DRF units, we recommend
you to read carefully the information
provided in this manual before proceeding
to the installation of the instrument. In this
manual you will find all technical data,
both electrical and mechanical, needed
for a correct instalation and utilization.
Note : The DRF Series Isolated Signal
Converters have a characteristics label
attached on the side of the instrument.
Check that this information matches
with your requirements for the specific
application, and especially check the
value and type of the Power Supply.

QUICK GUIDE
The DRF units have a front cover which
can be opened down. This cover gives
access to the Span and Offset
potentiometers, and to the selection
jumpers for input and output signal ranges.
To open the front cover, press slightly the
sides of the cover at the upper side, close
to the OUTPUT terminals, as indicated on
Figure1.
The cover is free to open down, as shown
on Figure2.
POWER SUPPLY CONNECTIONS

FRONT VIEW WITH COVER
DRF units are powered through the plugin terminal positioned on the upper side of
the instrument. This terminal is placed in
a transverse axis, different from the other
terminals. Close to the power supply
terminal there is a small yellow label with
indications on the connections for AC and
DC

IMPORTANT !! Check that the power
supply indicated on the white label
attached to the side of the instrument,
matches with the power supply you want
to connect.

difference between the high and low
output levels (10-0=10Vdc).
Adjustment Example for model DRF-POT
1.- Connect potentiometer to input
terminals (8 «term+», 9 «term-» and 7 «signal»)
2.- Connect a multimeter to the output
signal terminals (4 and 5 for mA or 4 and 6 for
Vdc).
(Values in brackets are examples for a
calibration 0/100% = 0/10Vdc)
3.- Input a zero signal (0 %).
Operate offset potentiometer until
getting a zero output (0Vdc).
4.- Input the difference between the high
and low input levels (100-0=100% Aac).
Operate span potentiometer until
5.- Input low input level (0 %).
Operate offset potentiometer until
getting the low level output (0Vdc).
6.- Input high input level and check that
that the output also matches the
desired level (100 % =10Vdc).
If more accurate measurement is needed,
repeat steps 5 and 6.
Most of the input / output combinations
will be properly adjusted within the
instrument accuracy after these steps.

finished.

CAUTIONS, WARNINGS AND NOTES
INSTALATION
PRECAUTIONS.- The installation and the
future use of this unit
must be done by qualified
personnel. The unit has
not AC (mains) switch,
neither internal protection fuse. It will be in
operation as soon as power is connected.
The installation must incorporate an
external mains switch with a protection
fuse and also the necessary devices to
protect the operator and the process when
using the unit to a control machine or
process where injury to personnel or
damage to equipment or process may
occur as a result of failure of the unit.
fields, such as power relays, electrical
engines, speed regulators, etc. Do not
use until installation is completed.
POWER SUPPLY.- The power supply must
be connected to the adequate terminals 1,
2 and 3. The characteristics of the power
supply are shown on the side label. Please
make sure that the unit is correctly
connected to a power supply of the correct
voltage and frequency. Do not connect the
unit to lines which are overloaded or which
provide power to systems working on ONOFF cycles or inductive loads.
ATTENTION : If the power supply is DC
voltage, be careful with the polarity
indicated for each terminal.

SAFETY PRESCRIPTIONS.- The unit has
been designed and tested
under EN-61010-1 rules and
is
delivered
in
good
conditions. This User’s Manual contains useful information the user
has to respect in order to warrant a proper
function of the unit, and good security
conditions. The unit is designed for
internal applications, with good
ventilation to avoid excessive heating. It
can occasionally b e a p p l i e d t o
temperatures down to 10ºC or up to 70ºC
without security degradation. Do all
connections before applying power to the
unit. Do not make wiring changes until
power is disconnected from the unit.
Install the unit far from elements
generating electric noise, or magnetic
SIGNAL WIRING .- Certain considerations
must be given when installing the signal
input wires. If the wires are long, they can
act as an antenna introducing electrical
noise into the unit. Therefore :
Do not install the signal input wires in the
same conduit with power lines, heaters,
solenoids, SCR controls, etc ... and always
far from these elements.
When shielded wires are used, leave
unconnected the shield on the transmitter
side and conect the other end of the shield
to the ground terminal of the machine.
EXCITATION VOLTAGE.- Model DRF-PR
incorporates an internal power supply for
transducers. The output of this power
supply is connected to terminals 7 and 9.
Do not connect these terminals to an
external power supply, beacuse both units
will be permantently damaged.
