Press Release Summary:
Connected directly to standard strain gage-based load cell, extensometer, or pressure sensor, Model 4325B-GUI simultaneously generates 10 V analog output and serial digital output for connection to PC. Unit compensates for transducer nonlinearities using 6-point calibration capability. With integrated electronic tags, TEDS-Tag Auto Load Cell Identification feature allows device to automatically select correct sensor calibration and analog output for scaling for connected transducer.
Original Press Release:
Model 4325B-GUI Digital Signal Conditioner - Directo to PC with RS232 Data Plus Scalable +/-10V Analog Output
Electro Standards Laboratories, Cranston, RI, announces the CellMite Model 4325B-GUI Intelligent Digital Signal Conditioner with TEDS-Tag Auto Load Cell Identification. The Model 4325B-GUI is a compact digital signal conditioner that connects directly to a standard strain gage based load cell, extensometer or pressure sensor and simultaneously generates a serial digital output for connection to a PC as well as a 10V analog output.
The Model 4325B-GUI compensates for transducer nonlinearities using its integrated 6-point calibration capability not found in standard signal conditioners. Its multi-drop RS232 serial port, unit addressing capabilities, and simple command set allow for connection of multiple units in a serial network configuration. The TEDS-Tag auto identification feature with integrated electronic tags allows the Model 4325B-GUI to automatically select the correct sensor calibration and analog output for scaling for the connected transducer.
Model 4325B-GUI features a nonvolatile memory for parameter and calibration storage, the ability to select between three transducers, multi-point and mV/V calibration, remote sense excitation, and a 24-bit internal resolution with 16-bit analog output. The unit features storage for three calibrated transducers. Functions include tare, peak and valley. The engineering units supported include: in, cm, mm, %, Lb, Kg, N, mV/V and user-defined.
The Model 4325B-GUI operates with either CellView Lite GUI Software, CellView Multi-Unit Display GUI Software or with software drivers. The CellView software features a turnkey data acquisition system. Data, calibration, and sensor test information can be saved and exported to spreadsheets. The software allows the operator to setup a test to start and/or stop automatically with user-selectable trigger events and delayed triggering.
The Model 4325B-GUI is ideally suited for in-situ transducer conditioning and distributed process measurements. CellMites are addressable for a Serial Network. The software guides the user through sensor calibration and through adding and removing networked units. The CellMite Model 4325B-GUI can be networked along with the CellMite Model 4331-200 LVDT AC Excitation Digital Signal Conditioners.
Electro Standards offers a family of CellMite Intelligent Digital Signal Conditioners. They include single and dual-channel units, encased, DIN rail, and board configurations. Units are available with and without displays. A CellMite is available for wireless communication up to 1500 feet. A CellMite is also available with both LVDT and force measurement capabilities.
