DIN Rail Filters
- High Quality Signal Condition in Small Package
- Easy to Install
- Can Be Fixed Or Variable Fc
The Kemo DIN rail mounted filters units combine Kemo's extensive knowledge of signal filtering with a DIN rail case, screw connections, and a 24 V DC supply. With the combination of gain, easy installation, and a wide range of filter responses the Kemo DIN Rail filters are an easy solution to many industrial signal problems.
Filters are available to cover a wide range of applications, general purpose noise reduction, anti-aliasing, signal reconstruction, and notch filters to reduce unwanted frequencies, as well as traditional Butterworth and Bessel filters.
Gain is set by easy access on board jumpers, with gain trim. Input configurations are set by internal jumpers, the case opens without tools. Signal and power connections are made by industry standard screw terminals.
See our Solutions section for a real problem solved using Kemo filters similar to the DIN Rail filters.
DIN Rail filters are available in two versions, DR for voltage outputs, and DRI with voltage outputs and 4-20mA output.
Kemo have many years expertise in the field of small noisy signals, contact us if you have any questions, or require further information.
For higher channel counts, >8 channels, all in one location, we suggest you take a look at the CardMaster 21.2 page.

Both versions of DIN Rail filters have the same flexible configurable input stage.
Single Ended / Differential - The units are fundamentally differential input. Single ended input is easily set by either an internal jumper or an external link to zero volts on the input screw terminals. Note all the connector blocks have a zero volt terminal.
AC / DC Coupling - is set by internal jumpers. The AC coupling is matched to both legs of the differential inputs.
IEPE - a 4mA current source is provided for use with IEPE transducers, this is set by an internal jumper. Higher currents can be set up to 10mA.
4-20 mA Input - this input is a 500 Ω resistor across the differential inputs, the incoming 4-20mA signal is converted to a 2-10V voltage signal. This input can be set to differential input to give a semi-floating input, or set to single ended to tie the input to signal zero volts.
The input gain is set by jumpers:- x1,x2,x5,x10,x20,x50,x100,x200,x500,x1000.
There is a small gain trim of about +/- 10%, depending on filter type fitted.
The standard range of Kemo lowpass and highpass filter modules can be fitted to the DIN Rail filters. A sharp notch filter, response NQ10, is available for 50Hz or 60Hz applications.
1200 series DIN rail units are fixed frequency.
1600 series DIN rail units have variable frequency filter modules, 255 filter steps set by an easy to use DIP switch.
Both versions of DIN Rail rail filters have 2 identical buffered voltage outputs.
DRI version with 4-20mA Outputs
The DRI version adds a 4-20mA output. The filtered voltage is reconverted to a 4-20mA current signal. The output current can be configured EITHER as a current source using the isolated +24V power supply built in the unit, OR as a current sink, where an external +24 supply can be used. This provides a very versatile flexible system.
Order as DRI version.
Optional Output Offset
Optional output offset after the filter, before the output buffers, adjustable by multi-turn pot over a +/- 50% of output full scale.
Order as option 'O'.
DC Power - The 9-30V DC power input in this unit uses conversion methods, please check our page about DC Power.
