Product Overview

Clean, in excellent condition; mounting bolts, nuts, and washers are included. This sensor was removed from decommissioned Tovey lab equipment, and actually is a Calex Bridge Sensor that was relabeled by Tovey Engineering.

This self-contained, AC-powered signal conditioning module is designed for use in bridge-type instrumentation. The instrument consists of a precision differential instrumentation amplifier with a filtered output and a highly regulated, low noise excitation source. The unit is completely encapsulated to protect it from harsh environments.

Features:
2 kHz Frequency Response
Rugged, Compact, And Fully Encapsulated
Stable and Accurate

Applications:
Weighing With Load Cells
Long Term Structural Monitoring
Process Control Pressure Transducers
Strain Measurement

 

What kinds of bridgesensors are there?

There are two kinds of bridge sensors. One is signal conditioning bridge sensors while the other is signal sensing bridge sensors. The signal conditioning bridge sensor is used to convert signal current into signal voltages that can be then amplified. The signal sensing bridge sensor does not need any signal conversion and it only amplifies the signal currents.

What are signal conditioners and how do they work?

What signal conditioners do is convert signal currents into signal voltages so that they can be amplified. They are typically used on Bridge Sensors, signal conditioning bridge sensors are used to convert signal current into signal voltages that can then be amplified by an instrumentation amplifier. A signal sensing bridge sensor does not need signal conversion and only amplifies the signal currents.

In other words - Signal conditioners change signal voltages to signal currents. Bridge sensors convert the current into voltage. Signaling sensors only amplify the signals without converting them.

Why do I need signal conditioning for my bridge sensor?

Bridge-type instrumentation amplifies signal voltages by internally converting signal voltages to signal currents, which are then amplified. The signal conditioning circuit provides for amplification of signal currents through an instrumentation amplifier followed by signal voltage conversion using a differential instrumentation amplifier. Without signal conditioning, the signal current would be amplified but it is not converted back to signal voltage.

The signal conditioning circuit provides for amplification of signal currents through an instrumentation amplifier followed by signal voltage conversion using a differential instrumentation amplifier. Without signal conditioning, the signal current would be amplified but it is not converted back to signal voltage. Signal conditioners convert signals into either current or voltage depending on what kind of bridge sensor they will be used with (signal sensing or signal conditioning).

Bridge sensor signal conditioners convert signal voltages to signal currents

• Reduce the risk of instrument malfunction by reducing noise interference

• Signal conditioning circuits provide signal conversion for signal sensing bridge sensors
