Nexen Introduces New Signal Conditioner
(Vadnais Heights, Minn. - April 7, 2003) Nexen Group, Inc., will announced their new SC100 Signal Conditioner at CMM International from April 14 - 17, 2003 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.
Nexen's SC100 Signal Conditioner provides excitation and signal processing to amplify two low voltage sensor signals to industry standard voltage and current levels for further use in process and monitoring applications. The SC100 supports two different sensor families. The first being differential signal sensors such as strain gauge load cells used to measure force or tension. The second being single-ended signal sensors such as LVDT load cells used to measure force or tension and web guide
sensors used to measure web position.
This product easily integrates into a system because excitation voltages are adjustable and bipolar. The SC100's excitation voltage is also capable of handling demanding sensor loads. Outputs can be scaled to any desired engineering unit using onboard zero and span potentiometers. This allows for quick calibration of sensors. The SC100 interfaces easily with PLCs, PCs, indicators or other process controls. The DIN rail mountable SC100 mounts simply into existing control cabinets.
This product is primarily for the web control industry, but may also be used in industries using low voltage analog sensors where amplification is needed for monitoring or further process control.
Nexen is a leading manufacturer of brakes, clutches, servo motor and linear motion brakes, torque limiters, overload protection devices, and web tension control systems for a variety of industrial applications ranging from motion control and robotics to packaging and material handling. With headquarters in Vadnais Heights, Minn., Nexen has more than 40 worldwide sales offices and more than 1,500 worldwide distributor sales outlets.
