Signal Conditioners and Isolators

This Product Selection Guide contains information to help select products in the Signal Conditioners and Isolators category on DigiKey.com

Signal conditioners are used to convert signals to a different level or type often for sensor measurements. Isolators are devices that separate or isolate one circuit from another in regard to power. Types available include isolation amplifiers, passive isolators, signal conditioners, and more. These are defined by various parameters including input type, output type, isolation voltage, extra features and more.Signal conditioners are used to convert signals to a different level or type often for sensor measurements.

SelectionCharacteristics

Type: Indicates the style and configuration of the device.

Input Type: Indicates the type(s) of signals the device was designed for use with.

Input Range (Current, Voltage): Typically represented by a range, this indicates the low and high voltage and/or current limits the device was designed for use with. Voltages and/or currents outside this range may damage the device and other system components.

Input Range (Additional): Typically represented by a range, this indicates the low and high limits of other types of inputs the device was designed for use with. Inputs outside this range may damage the device and other system components.

Output Type: Indicates the type of electrical signal the device provides, such as current or voltage.

Output Range: Indicates the range of values that can be output by the device.

Isolation: A measure of the difference in power applied to a device’s input port and the portion thereof that appears at its isolated port, when properly terminated.

Features: These are different capabilities or properties of the device such as an alarm relay or test button.

Voltage - Supply: Typically represented by a range, this indicates the low and high voltage limits which one can expect standard operation. Voltages outside this range may damage the device and other system components.

Mounting Type: Indicates how the device is attached.

Termination Style: Selection of termination style used to connect the device to a system, such as screw terminals.

Operating Temperature: Recommended operating temperature, typically given in a range or as a maximum. Exceeding these temperatures may affect performance or damage the device and other system components.
