PACIFIC Instruments has released channel modules that plug into the 3 or 16-channel recorder to condition, amplify, filter, digitise and store the transducer signals.
Simultaneous sampling provides excellent time correlation between channels and external events.
Available from Metromatics , the digitiser has 14, 16 or 24-bit resolution and sample rates programmable up to two million samples per second.
Each channel has two inputs, one for bridges, RTDs, potentiometers and thermocouples; the other ac coupled with 1 to 20mA current source for transducers with built-in electronics.
Signal conditioning includes programmable excitation and completion for 1/4, 1/2 and full bridge, ac-coupling, automatic balance, voltage and four-step shunt calibration, programmable gain, and a four frequency, eight-pole filter.
Metromatics is the agent in Australia & New Zealand providing sales, service and support for all Pacific Instruments Equipment.
