IMI Sensors, a division of PCB Piezotronics, represented by Davidson Measurement , has released a DIN-rail mountable, ICP sensor signal conditioner for converting the analogue voltage measurement signals of industrial vibration sensors into 4 to 20mA signals.
Model 682A03 provides a choice of rms or peak acceleration, velocity, or displacement output signals as well as a selection of filtering ranges.
In addition, the unit converts and delivers a second 4 to 20 mA output signal proportional to temperature to accommodate IMI's vibration sensors with built-in temperature sensors.
Additional features include an analogue output BNC for dynamic signal analysis and diagnostics, LED indicators for power, input fault, and selected output, and 500V dc isolation.
With this one powerful and versatile instrument, critical machinery vibration can be continuously monitored with PLC, DCS, SCADA , and alarm systems as well as analysed and diagnosed with portable data collection and acquisition equipment.
