NewTek Sensor Solutions’ NT-C-6000 Quik-Cal LVDT signal conditioner offers an intuitive AC LVDT set-up for quick configuration by non-technical personnel. Workers can set zero and full-scale output using front panel push buttons while LED indicators provide prompts for the calibration process. Color-coded plug-in screw terminals further simplify equipment set-up. These smart signal conditioners even self-diagnose and indicate LVDT failure while providing cybersecurity lockout and tamper detection.
Compatible with a range of ac-operated LVDTs and inductive half-bridge LVRTs, the conditioner establishes digital communications via a RS-485 two-wire multidrop bus. The RS-485 port also supports hot swapability of units by saving set-up parameters. Units offer several user-selectable fields including:
- Primary Voltage (1.5 Vrms or 3 Vrms)
- Excitation Frequency (3.5 kHz, 5 kHz, 7.5 kHz and 10 kHz)
- DC Output (0-10V DC, 0-5VDC, 0.5 to 4.5VDC, +5VDC, +10VDC or 4-20mA)
- Digital Address for RS-485 Communication
