Dataforth Strain gage input module
The MAQ20-BRDG1 strain gage input module offers four channels of strain gage input per compact module and can interface to quarter-, half- or full-bridge sensors using either a four- or six-wire connection. It interfaces to transducers with a nominal resistance of 100 to 1kΩ. Four 24-bit data converters provide accurate measurement capability, while anti-alias filtering eliminates signal degradation from environmental noise. This module has 1500-Vrms input-to-bus isolation. Individual channels have overload and reverse protection on all field terminals to prevent module and system damage due to transient events or inadvertent wiring errors. Signal range, bridge excitation voltage and sample rate are all user-configurable parameters.
