Macro Sensors, a manufacturer of innovative linear and rotary position sensors, and related instrumentation, introduces a new Single Channel LVDT Signal Conditioner ideal for use in automation applications with PLCs and mini-PLCs.
July, 2003 -- Operating from 24V DC, the LVC-2402 DC-Operated LVDT Signal Conditioner works in factory locations where space and power sources are limited. Designed to support any standard LVDT, this low-cost signal conditioner offers three user-selectable analog outputs including: 0 to ±10V DC, 0 to 10V DC or 4-20 mA current output in a three- or four-wire current loop configuration.
Unlike other 24V LVDT signal conditioners, the 24V DC input power of the LVC-2402 Signal Conditioner is fully isolated from its analog outputs, enabling its connection in either a 4-wire isolated I/O configuration or in a 3-wire common ground system in which the power ground is connected to the output signal’s ground.
Other significant features of the LVC-2402 LVDT Signal Conditioner include:
The LVC-2402 does not require a phase adjustment control, enabling its operation with longer cables that connect it to an LVDT.
The LVC-2402 provides LVDT excitation frequency in a choice of either 3, 5 or 10 kHz.
External zero control permits output offset adjustments from –100% to +100% of full scale output. Adjustments are non-interactive.
Compact in size at just 0.88” wide x 2.95” high, all internal components of the LVC-2402 are fully enclosed in a tough polymide housing. The DIN rail mountable housing easily integrates with PLCs, timers, circuit breakers and other DIN rail mounted modules.
The LVC-2402 LVDT Signal Conditioner also supports multi-channel applications by permitting the synchronization of all unit oscillators within a system.
