Each DSCT32 current input transmitter provides a single channel of analog input which is filtered, isolated, amplified, and converted to a process current output. Signal filtering is accomplished with a five-pole filter, which provides 80dB per decade of normal-mode-rejection above 100Hz.
An anti-aliasing pole is located on the field side of the isolation barrier, and the other four are on the process loop side. After the initial field-side filtering, the input signal is chopped by a proprietary chopper circuit. Isolation is provided by transformer coupling, again using a proprietary technique to suppress transmission of common mode spikes or surges.
