The Model 140 low-noise, inline amplifier is a remote DC amplifier designed to be used with bridge-type mV output transducers. From Measurement Specialties and available through Durham Instruments, the amplifier features five user-selectable gain settings with a gain accuracy of ±0.5 per cent, and offers a wide bandwidth to 100kHz.
The Model 140 offers a unique auto-zero function (patent pending) that allows the operator to zero the transducer offset voltage to within ±1.5mV — either remotely or by pressing the on-board push button at the user’s command, usually right before data capture. This feature removes any offset drift from the sensor for a more accurate measurement.
Model 140 features include:
- Interface with mV output sensors;
- ±1.5mV auto-zero function;
- x10, x25, x50, x100 and x200 gain settings;
- Wide bandwidth to 100kHz;
- -20 to 70 degrees C operating range; and
- Five to 30 VDC excitation voltage.
The inline amplifier can be used for pressure and level indication, static acceleration testing, instrumentation labs, load monitoring, strain measurement and many other applications.
