The Digital Analog Converter increases the flexibility of Lufft WS family of weather stations. LUFFT announced in Feb 2011 the addition of a new analog converter to further increase the flexibility of its already dynamic WS family line of intelligent weather sensors.
The Lufft-DACON8-UMB (Digital-Analog-Converter) converts up to 8 channels into analog output signals. The converter can be used with one sensor or a combination of different UMB sensors. The Lufft-DACON8-UMB uses the UMB protocol to read the data and convert the digital data into voltage or current output. In cases involving only one Lufft UMB sensor, the combination of the sensor and DACON8-UMB works without any other interface.
If the Lufft DACON8-UMB has to convert data for more than one Lufft UMB sensor, then every UMB sensor will require a Lufft ISOCON between the it and the DACON8-UMB and must be connected to the RS485-bus. In case there are more than 8 channels requested by the application, the DACON8-UMB application can work with more than one converter. It is necessary to use one converter per DACON8-UMB.
