PCB Piezotronics introduces Model 482C24 signal conditioner that will power any ICP sensor and is suitable for dynamic measurements up to 100 kHz. It includes DC coupling that is selectable on a per channel basis. It is ideal for use with ICP force, and pressure sensors that have long discharge time constants allowing temporary measurements down to 0 Hz. An auto-zero function automatically negates any DC bias.
A clamped output feature (when AC coupled), used in repetitive force applications such as stamping and press monitoring, provides a positive-only signal that electronically re-zeros each pulse before the next cycle.
Additional features include a front panel keypad and display, incremental gain from x0.1 to x200, TEDS support and an RS-232 port for computer control through PCB supplied software.
