Key Facts

Flexible distribution of digital port signals of the R&S®TS-PIO3B module

The R&S®TS-PTRF is an accessory module for routing digital control lines of the R&S®TS-PIO3B digital I/O module to the front panel of the R&S®CompactTSVP or R&S®PowerTSVP. In both instruments, the module is connected as a switching and distribution module in front of an R&S®TS-PIO3B or an R&S®TS-PTR signal transmission module and offers a variety of ways to route signals.

The R&S®TS-PIO3B digital I/O module is designed as a universal coil driver. In conjunction with the R&S®TS-PTRF option, any number of external relays or built-in switching relays – particularly relays for RF signal routing – can be connected in a standardized manner. In this case, the R&S®TS-PTRF module is used as the port distributor.

Local +5 V/+12 V supply voltages

The R&S®TS-PTRF module receives a +12 V supply voltage from the R&S®TS-PIO3B digital I/O module or from the passive R&S®TS-PTR signal transmission module. This voltage is converted to +5 V directly on the front module and is made available externally and at all ports from P0 to P7 on connectors X33 to X40. The likewise available +12 V supply voltage is protected on the R&S®TS-PIO3B or on the R&S®TS-PTR via safety fuses. The +5 V supply voltage is not fuse-protected, but it is short-circuit-proof. The converter can deliver an output current of max. 2 A at 5 V.

Analog bus access

The R&S®TS-PTRF provides a connector to the analog bus. When the module is used in slots 3 to 14 in the R&S®CompactTSVP or in slots 1 to 14 in the R&S®PowerTSVP, contact is established between connector X30 and the analog bus. The eight lines of the analog bus are routed to connector X32.

Distribution of digital I/O ports

For each open drain I/O port (0 to 7) of an attached R&S®TS-PIO3B, the R&S®TS-PTRF provides contact to one plug-in connector from X33 to X40. Furthermore, each open drain I/O port of the R&S®TS-PIO3B can optionally be led out to the front panel via jumpers.

Additional simple analog measurement channels

The eight analog inputs of the R&S®TS-PIO3B module can optionally be led out to the front panel via jumpers. Furthermore, one analog line each is routed to plug-in connectors X33 to X40.
