The 422E5x series ±5.0V output in-line ICP charge converters are prime candidates for use with high temperature piezoelectric sensors operating in environments up to +500°F (+260°C). They feature five gain options, allowing greater compatibility with a wide range of sensors, and claim to be a less expensive alternative for laboratory charge amplifiers. The converters interface between the sensor and any ICP-powered signal conditioner and/or connect directly to a DAQ system or readout device if the system incorporates ICP power. The new 422E5x components also replace PCB legacy 422E0x and 422E1x series in-line charge converters that have a smaller ±2.5 Volt output. For more info, go to http://www.pcb.com/chargeconverter
