Sensor Converter Adapts Charge Mode to Voltage Mode Operation
A new sensor converter from Kistler Instrument widens the application range of piezoelectric sensors. The 5050A in-line converter adapts sensors with high impedance, charge mode outputs to low impedance, voltage mode operation. Available in three fixed-gain versions of 0.1, 1 and 10, the converter has a frequency response of 1 Hz to 20kHz.
Typically the 5050A would convert the output signal of an accelerometer in high temperature environment measuring vibration. The converter follows the sensor and is powered by any industry standard IEPE compatible power source. The hermetically sealed, lightweight converter housing with a unique ceramic insulated connector is designed for long-term stability. This accelerometer-converter combination provides a less expensive alternate to conventional, laboratory charge amplifiers.
Kistler is a worldwide supplier of precision instrumentation for the measurement of pressure, force and acceleration serving the R & D, industrial and automotive communities.
