Module Measures Strain Accurately

Feb. 1, 2002

Designed for accurate, distributed measurements of strain in a variety of different applications, the FP-SG-140 module interfaces with a wide range of transducers and provides a 16-bit resolution. The strain gauge module provides programmable bridge completion for full- and half-bridge configurations and offers an option that permits each of the moduleÕs eight channels to be programmed with a different excitation level of 2.5V, 5V or 10V. Each analog input channel has a software-enabled comb filter that can be set to reject frequencies above 15, 60 or 240 Hz. The module also uses the company's FieldPoint Explorer and interfaces with LabVIEW, Lookout, LabWindows/CVI, or any OLE for process control. Prices start at $495 each.
