Mantracourts 'SGA' Strain Gauge or Load Cell Amplifier is a high performance signal conditioner for single or multiple strain gauge bridge sensors (load, force, pressure, torque), offering a wide bandwidth and a wide input signal range. The simple to use unit offers flexibility in the choice of outputs, filtering and transducer sensitivity; all via DIL switch settings and fine trim potentiometers.
The device can be powered from AC or DC supplies providing excitation for up to 4 x 350 ohm strain gauge bridges. The conditioned output signal can be selected from 0-20mA, 4-20mA, 0-10V, 0-5V, ±5V or ±10V. The conditioned signal can be output via a bipolar voltage channel or via a current loop channel, both being provided as standard.
Options include. Isolated DC supply, DIN rail mount and OEM module.
Features of the SGA:
Bridge excitation of 10V DC with drive for 4 load cells
Selectable bandwidth of 1 to 5000 Hz for test & measurement applications
Selectable sensitivity from 0.1 to 30 mV/V using switches and fine trim potentiometer
Switch selectable offset ±70% FS using switches and fine trim potentiometer
User selectable analogue output in standard voltage or current format
