Advanced Smart Industrial AC-LVDT Signal Conditioner

Alliance Sensors Group's SC-200 DIN-rail-mounting LVDT signal conditioner for industrial measuring systems, testing laboratories, and factory automation offers push buttons for fast and easy calibration of the Full Scale and Zero Outputs, differential input to minimize ground-loop noise, and color-coded screw terminal plugs for quick hook up.

The SC-200 is engineered to work with a very wide range of LVDT, RVDT, and inductive half-bridge (LVRT) sensors by providing four excitation frequencies that operate most AC-LVDTs over a 50 to 5,000 mVrms range of sensor output. SC-200 modules offer a choice of 8 analog outputs and a half-duplex RS-485 digital communications port to facilitate remote setup and for saving a module's setup parameters to hot-swap them with another module.
