FUTEK has introduced a new range of digitally configurable strain gauge amplifiers designed to provide both analogue and digital outputs via USB. 

The analogue outputs of the new IDA100 can be used to send information directly to a PLC while the USB output is used to simultaneously verify the correct functioning of the system. The amplifier also eliminates the need for manual adjustments using dip switches and potentiometers, which can cause unnecessary interruptions. Micro adjustments and calibrations can all be done electronically using FUTEK’s IDA100.

The dual output IDA100 offers an amplified analogue output as well as an amplified digital output, with the analogue output having a bandwidth of 1 kHz, and the digital output, a variable bandwidth of the selected sampling rate / 4.

Unlike traditional power supplies that introduce noise to an application, the IDA100 is designed to power on via the 5V USB connector, minimising the interference of noise in the sensor platform.

The bipolar output of the IDA100 digital amplifier with software selectable excitation voltages of ±5 or ±10 VDC allows the user to select the appropriate voltage for their desired resolution.

Similar to FUTEK’s IAA analogue amplifier series, the IDA100 is also designed with an integrated 35mm DIN rail clip. The high retention USB connector ensures that the power supply to the IDA100 will not be affected should the connector experience a tug or pull during use.
