LVDT signal conditioner supports position measurement apps

San Diego, Calif.—ACCES I/O Products Inc. has introduced its newly designed LVDT signal conditioner board, Model LVDT-8A, which offers eight channels of signal conditioning, resulting in a price per channel of less than $100.

The elimination of multiplexer circuitry on the board provides enhanced capability of simultaneous outputs that directly correspond to the sensed positions in a real-time environment. Removable screw-terminal blocks are used on the LVDT-8A board to allow convenient connection to linear variable differential transformers (LVDTs) through screw terminals. Use of five on-board LEDs verifies the full voltage range of the LVDT, providing validation of functionality and input circuit connection.

Applications include factory automation environments such as automotive, machining, inspection, weighing and process control.

The board is packaged in a rugged industrial enclosure that offers physical protection and features a DIN rail-mounting provision for industrial environments. Accessories include an assortment of 37-pin ribbon cables for connecting the conditioned outputs to a variety of readily available A/D converter products.

No software is necessary to start using the LVDT-8A—it can be used right out of the box. A user-friendly setup program and user manual is included with each shipment.

Pricing: $795—LVDT-8A eight-channel LVDT signal conditioner in enclosure (Volume pricing available, consult factory).
Availability: Now; delivery is stock to two weeks ARO.
