The ultra-miniature strain gauge amplifier AMP-UM10KB has been developed based on modern chip technology to meet the growing need for strain measurements in demanding industrial environments, where miniature size and easy set-up are essential.
The design concept is based upon the ability to place complete strain gauge conditioning (stable 5-V bridge excitation and precision instrumentation amplifier circuitry) in close proximity to the strain gauges. An amplified (high level) output signal which has good immunity to noise can be safely transmitter via slip rings or long cables, which considerably reduces noise and increases signal integrity.
AMP-UM10KB is a fixed gain device with nominal gain of 1000. Other fixed gain values are available on request. The standard unit is designed to service full-bridge gauges; units with internal completion resistors are available on request, for servicing half-bridge or quarter-bridge gauges.
