Strain/Bridge Input Device for FieldDAQ

Measures bridge-based sensors, such as strain gages and load cells, in rugged environments. FieldDAQ™ devices are dust- and water-resistant and offer TSN technology for simplified distribution.

The Strain/Bridge Input Device for FieldDAQ™ measures up to eight channels and has built-in bridge completion and voltage excitation to support for quarter-, half-, and full-bridge sensors. It also features anti-alias filtering, offset nulling, and shunt calibration to reduce the effect of noise and improve measurement accuracy. Like all FieldDAQ devices, it has an ingress protection rating up to IP67 (dust- and water-resistant), can operate in -40 °C to 85 °C environments, and can sustain 100 g shock and 10 g vibration. The Strain/Bridge Input Device for FieldDAQ incorporates Time Sensitive Networking (TSN), which provides tight synchronization over a distributed network of data acquisition nodes without additional cabling or complex programming. The device features an integrated network switch and built-in power circuitry for simple daisy chaining. The Strain/Bridge Input Device for FieldDAQ is ideal for test cell and outdoor environments.
