Analog Inputs : 8-Channel Isolated Analog Input Module

Analog inputs are signals in which the primary variable of interest varies with time and is proportional to another time-varying quantity. An example of this is a voltage reading for a pressure sensor that varies proportionally to the changes in pressure seen by the sensor. An analog input module is an electrical component that takes analog inputs and distributes or processes those inputs based on the type of module. In an isolated analog input module, each channel is isolated from the others to reduce electronic noise caused by channel crosstalk and ground loops.
