Strain Gage Input Module Packs High-Level Signal Conditioning

Strain Gage Input Module Packs High-Level Signal Conditioning
Dataforth Corp.

The MAQ20-BRDG1 strain gage input module provides four channels of strain gage input in a compact module that can interface to quarter, half, or full-bridge sensors using either a four- or six-wire connection. It interfaces to transducers with a nominal resistance of 100Ω to 1 kΩ and provides 1.5-kVrms of input-to-bus isolation. Signal range, bridge excitation voltage, and sample rate are user-configurable. Signal bandwidth scales automatically with sample rate. Internal precision shunt calibration resistors and a zero-balance feature compensate for sensor inaccuracy, and internal bridge completion resistors are built-in for use with half-bridge and quarter bridge sensors.
