Sensors Expo 2018: DSC Covers Displacement Apps

Making a formidable presence at Sensors Expo 2018 in San Jose, CA in booth #530, LORD Sensing, MicroStrain released a new and higher performing digital output version of its signal conditioners for displacement customers. The Demod-DIGITAL provides the marketplace with up to 50 times increase in resolution and accuracy in a plug-and-play system. Existing sensors can be upgraded with a simple factory recalibration in their current applications.


Already established in the marketplace, Demod-DIGITAL is designed to monitor small but critical deflections in many applications. Reportedly, it has proven to be an enabling technology in consumer electronic products as part of a production test system that measures enclosure expansion due to temperature. The unit linearizes the sensor output using a 100-point linear interpolation that is preprogrammed and calibrated at the factory. This output is provided in millimeters as both an analog signal (0-10V) and serial RS232 (RS485 optional). Further, it works with SensorConnect to graph and log data as well as SensorCloud for data storage.
