Alliance Sensor Group’s SC-200 LVDT signal conditioner offers smart and fast LVDT/RVDT setup and has been engineered to work with the widest range of LVDTs, RVDTs, and inductive half-bridge sensors including three-wire industrial LVRTs. The signal conditioning module has cyber security tamper prevention and notification features, providing confidence that the unit has not been compromised. Features include:
- Push button calibration
- Built-In null indication
- Four excitation frequencies, 8 analog DC outputs (6 DC voltage and 2 current loop outputs)
- 16 addresses for RS-485 digital communications
- Hot swap capability
- Advanced master/slave capability to reduce cross talk
“We are extremely excited about the release of the SC-200”, states Harold Schaevitz, President and CEO of Alliance Sensors Group. “The marketplace has asked Alliance Sensors for several enhanced features, and our engineering staff has exceeded expectations and delivered a superior product for the Industrial market compared to other manufacturer’s products.
The SC-200 offers fault or failure detection for high reliability applications like nuclear power plant steam turbine controls. Its diagnostics can detect at least eleven fault conditions such as:
- Shorted primary,
- Disconnected or open primary,
- Shorted or grounded secondaries,
- Disconnected or open secondaries,
- Analog output shorts or opens,
- Common hook-up errors that can occur during initial installation and setup.
- Cybersecurity to prevent tampering and notify main system operations of tamper attempt.
- Real-time recalibration to tweak the analog output after the mechanical system’s warmup.
- Recalibration from the module’s front panel or over the RS-485 bus.
- Differential input which common modes out most ground-loop developed noise signals.
- Backward Compatible to perform exactly as the legacy S1A conditioner.
Other features include:
- Push-button calibration
- Color coded plug-in connections which permit easy pre-wiring in a rack and hot swapping
- Self-diagnostics for LVDT winding failures or cable disconnection.
- Detected output errors or faults drive analog output out of range, which is especially important for applications using redundant LVDTs
