New Multichannel Charge Amplifier Enhances Precision and Flexibility in Laboratory Applications
Extremely accurate measurement of physical quantities in laboratory applications requires precise signal amplification. The new, modular high-end multichannel charge amplifier Type 5080A... from Kistler is designed to cater to a whole variety of tasks with these requirements. For example, it amplifies the signals from piezoelectric sensors for multicomponent force measurement. This makes this innovative amplifier ideal for applications such as recording the minute forces encountered in micromachining.
As the successor to charge amplifier Types 5017 and 5019, new Type 5080A... is intended for mounting in 19" racks. Its modular design allows expansion to eight amplifier modules at any time. It can accommodate both charge modules for piezoelectric sensors and dual-mode modules with charge/Piezotron® input. This enables acquisition of not only force signals but also signals from sensors measuring pressure, torque or acceleration. This possibility of combining charge and dual-model modules in the rack permits recording of, for instance, force and acceleration signals with the same unit.
The new multichannel charge amplifier offers a wide frequency range from 0 to more than 200 kHz, a broad measuring range (±2 to 2,2 million pC), low drift, a low noise level, enhanced low-pass filtering and an integral summing processor as standard. The AC and DC versions available communicate via USB and RS-232C interfaces.
