Model EZE10X005

Analogue Strain Gauge Measurement Amplifier


Analogue Strain Gauge Amplifier

Strain gauge amplifiers are used to transform the mV/V output-signals of strain gauges in amplified signals with a higher fault resistance. By the use of an amplifier it is also possible to connect sensors to displays and controlling units with the need for an amplified signal.  Cased in a compact space-saving housing the model EZE10X005 suits the needs of highly dynamic applications. Using the integrated plug connectors it can be plugged onto printed circuit boards. The amplifier is also available with an adapter for top hat rail mounting.

Application

Developed for fast and accurate force measurement the model EZE10X005 amplifier can be used in all kinds of dynamic force measurement applications. It is possible to connect all kind of strain gauges to the amplifier (up to 1 sensor with a resistance of 350 ohm) with an output signal up to ± 3,2 mV/V. The internal sensor supply is 10 VDC. Usually the amplifier is not pre-adjusted and the customer connects it to the force transducer and also adjusts it. Because of the 3-wire analogue output of ± 10 V and the needed supply energy for the amplifier between 12 and 24 V it is possbile to connect the model EZE10X005 series directly to PLC. Those normaly come with matching analogue inputs which offer a supply energy of 24 V. The integrated connection strip allows to plug the amplifier onto a circuit board. An adapterboard with screw-terminals for top hat mounting according to DIN EN 50022 in enclosures is available. Although usually there is no accurate adjusted signal needed for PLCs the adaptorboard is also available with potentiometer, which allows accurate signal adjustment. Interfering signals can be damped by a low-pass filter.
