AC-LVDT Signal Conditioner Is Tamper Proof

Alliance Sensors Group’s S2A LVDT signal conditioner offers smart and fast LVDT/RVDT setup and works with the widest range of LVDTs, RVDTs, and inductive half-bridge sensors including 3-wire GE LVRTs and GE gas turbine buck-boost style LVDTs. The signal conditioning module has cyber security tamper prevention and notification features, providing confidence that the unit has not been compromised. S2A operating features include:

  • Push button calibration
  • Built-In null indication
  • 4 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  

S2A diagnostic features include:

  • 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:

SENSORS EXPO & CONFERENCE

Sensors 2019 Hits Silicon Valley June 25-27!

Join 7,000+ engineers this June in San Jose at the sensor industry’s biggest event! With 65+ Technical Sessions, 100+ Leading Speakers, 10 new and updated tracks, and 300+ Interactive Exhibits, there’s more opportunity than ever to connect with this booming industry and the technologies driving it. See thousands of the newest technologies in action, learn about the latest applications, and develop invaluable partnerships at the only event dedicated to sensors, connectivity, and systems.
  • 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
  • A two-year warranty offers value to systems integrators who may purchase modules long before they will be put into service  

For more information, peruse S2A AC-LVDT signal conditioner, datasheet, manual, and/or quick start guide.
