The iDRN-FP and iDRX-FP signal conditioners provide accurate, stable, isolated measurement of frequency and pulse signals. Both models measure frequency signals up to 50 KHz and can count up to two million pulses. The iDRX-FP and iDRN-FP are compatible with a wide variety of transducers including proximity, switch, magnetic pickup, NAMUR, contact closure and open collector transducers.

TWO MODELS: ANALOG or DIGITAL OUTPUTS
The iDRN-FP provides an analog output that is proportional to the input signal. The iDRX-FP uses digital RS-485 Serial Communication.

ANALOG OUTPUT MODEL
The output of iDRN-FP can be user set for 0 to 10 V, 4 to 20 mA or 0 to 20 mA. Scaling and configuration is done with the free software on a PC using either the standard RS-232 port, or an Ethernet connection with the optional EIT-D module. Once configured the settings are stored in non-volatile memory and the unit disconnected from the PC.

DIGITAL OUTPUT MODEL
The iDRX-FP is a digital signal conditioner which communicates over an RS-485 communication link using either a simple straightforward NEWPORT® ASCII Serial Protocol or MODBUS Serial Protocol. Up to 32 modules may be connected to a single RS-485 port stretching up to 4,000 ft. without repeaters.

ETHERNET CONNECTION
The Optional EIT-D iServer module can connect up to thirty-two (32) iDRX RS-485 Signal Conditioners to an Ethernet network and the Internet using standard TCP/IP protocol. The iServer can also be used as a simple Serial to Ethernet "bridge" or converter to connect a single iDRN RS-232 device to an Ethernet network and the Internet.

Factory Setup and Configuration at No Extra Charge
To make your installation even easier, your iDRN (Analog Output and RS-232) signal conditioners can be ordered preconfigured by the factory at no extra charge. You select the input types, ranges and output scale and we will program the instruments to your specific requirements in our calibration lab prior to shipment. For custom factory setup and scaling of the iDRN model, please specify the “-FS” option.


Please Specify:
Input Signal or Sensor Type
Input Frequency High & Low
Output Value High & Low
Excitation: 10 or 14 Volts dc
Magnetic Pickup (2-wire)
Example: 0 Hz = 4 mA, 1000 Hz = 20mA, Excitation N/A

Free Active X Controls
Free Active X Controls are provided for the iDRN/iDRX series Signal Conditioners. This free software makes it easy to integrate the "iDRN/iDRX Signal Conditioners" with "Active X Containers" such as Microsoft Visual Basic as well as with popular OLE compliant data acquisition, process control, and industrial automation software from NEWPORT® as well as Wonderware, Intellution, and Rockwell Automation among others.
