Signal conditioner for LVDT position sensors eases calibration
5/12/2011 10:15 AM EDT
The Eazy-Cal from Macro Sensors is what the company claims to be
the most user-friendly LVDT signal conditioner. Employing a virtually
effortless fingertip calibration routine, the Eazy-Cal MMX series saves
time and money by eliminating the repetitive null and span potentiometer
adjustments associated with conventional analog based signal
Using two easily accessible front panel push buttons, calibrations
are accomplished digitally in a few seconds. An intuitive, sequencing
four LED status indicator guides the operator through the calibration
process, and provides foolproof feedback to insure calibration
integrity. Full calibration instructions, along with a connection
diagram are conveniently outlined on the side panel for quick reference.
Operating on a nominal 15-30V DC power input, the LVDT mini-modules
provides a low noise 0 to +10V DC output or 4-20 mA output over an
operating temperature range of 0 to +70ºC.
Supporting most manufacturers' LVDT position sensors with plug and
play compatibility, the unit can be remotely located by up to 30 meters
to facilitate LVDT operation in extreme environments. Other features
include Master/Slave synchronization capabilities (up to 10), and a high
impact / flame retardant plastic housing for harsh factory and
