Since its beginnings in 1984, Dataforth Corporation’s commitment has been to successfully meet customer needs through the ongoing design, development, and manufacture of top quality, low cost Industrial Electronics. Twenty-seven years later, Dataforth’s high-performance Instrument Class® signal conditioning, data acquisition, and data communication products ensure rugged signal and data integrity along with wide spectrum accuracy and unrivaled reliability for industrial automation, data acquisition, and quality assurance systems around the world.

“We continue to enhance and grow our product lines to meet the needs of an ever-changing market,” said Bill McGovern, National Sales Manager. “We are currently moving into system level business with our SCM5B SLX200 and 8B SLX300 isoLynx® data acquisition systems and their associated ReDAQ® Freedom and ReDAQ® Shape software offerings. We have also moved into the alternative energy market because we saw that our fully encapsulated, isolated signal conditioners are ideal for use in harsh environments like wind turbines. In addition, we are now getting involved with social media.”

Dataforth’s ongoing growth is reflected in the new 300-page Full-Line Product Catalog.

Renowned for their accuracy, reliability, cost-effectiveness, and overall outstanding performance, the Dataforth families of SCM5B isolated analog signal conditioning modules and SCM7B isolated process control signal conditioning modules provide ±0.03% accuracy and 1500Vrms transformer isolation. The 250+ different 5B modules offer 3-way isolation, 5V supply voltage, and “Lab” performance; the 202 7B modules provide 2-way isolation, 24V supply voltage, and “Industrial” performance. All modules are CSA C/US Certified and CE and ATEX Compliant. Custom modules are available.

The SensorLex® 8B isolated analog signal conditioning modules offer Instrument Class® performance in miniature size – making them ideal for embedded or portable applications. Since being introduced in 2005, the 8B line has grown to 19 family groups and 123 different modules, which provide ±0.05% accuracy, ±0.02% linearity, and 1500Vrms transformer isolation. All are CE Compliant with UL/CUL Listing and ATEX Compliance pending. Custom modules are available.

The SCM9B family is made up of isolated, intelligent, software configurable sensor-to-computer and computer-to-analog output modules. All are CE Compliant.

The miniature SCMD digital I/O modules provide a rugged, protective isolation barrier, effective to 4kV, between the field and the computer system.

The SCM5B isoLynx® SLX200 is an intelligent, high speed, fully isolated data acquisition system that works with Dataforth’s SCM5B modules and implements industry standard Modbus RTU and TCP protocols. The system offers maximum flexibility of analog and digital I/O selection, and all I/O is channel-to-channel and input-to-output isolated. The analog I/O modules offer ±0.03% accuracy, ±0.005% linearity, and are certified to CSA C/US, CE, and ATEX requirements. The SLX200 works with ReDAQ® Freedom software to provide an effective solution for test and measurement, machine control, and data acquisition applications.

The recently introduced isoLynx® SLX300 data acquisition system works with SensorLex® 8B modules; it builds on the proven reliability of the SLX200 system while also taking advantage of the 8B’s miniature size and outstanding Instrument Class® performance. The system can be configured with up to 12 isolated analog input channels, 4 isolated analog output channels, and 8 isolated digital I/O channels. The system also offers 7 advanced special functions and 4 alarm states. It can be panel or DIN rail mounted. ReDAQ® Shape is an out-of-the-box DAQ software designed specifically for the SLX300. It provides the easiest and most efficient development tool to create, save, and open graphical user interface projects as well as to test, process, and analyze acquired data.

Dataforth’s high performance DSCA modules are DIN rail mount isolated signal conditioners that provide Instrument Class® performance, true 3-way isolation, and ±0.03% accuracy. They are C-UL-US Listed, and CE and ATEX Compliant. Custom DSCA modules are available.

Other products include CE Compliant 4 to 20mA DSCL, DSCP, and SCTP industrial loop isolators and transmitters. These offer passive, active, and programmable options and include the new compact 6.2mm DSCP dip-switch configurable signal converters, which are ideal when space is limited. The DSCT loop powered 2-wire transmitters provide ±0.03% accuracy, 1500Vrms transformer isolation, and Instrument Class® performance in a DIN rail mount package. They are CSA C/US Certified and CE Compliant.

Dataforth’s family of CE Compliant industrial data communication products protects equipment from damage due to power surges, transients, and lightning; it includes line drivers and converters for RS-232, RS-422, and RS-485 systems.

All Dataforth products are manufactured in the USA and have been RoHS Compliant since 2006. The Dataforth Quality Management System is ISO9001:2008 registered.
