PCB’s New 4 Channel ICP Signal Conditioner with Expanded Features

New signal conditioner provides added application flexibility

PCB 4 Channel Signal Conditioner Model 482C24

John Morris Industrial introduces the new 4 channel ICP Signal Conditioner Model 482C24 by PCB Piezotronics.

When using ICP  force or pressure sensors, Model 482C24 provides:

4 Channel Signal Conditioner Model 482C24

  • DC coupling (specified on a per channel basis) allowing temporary measurements down to 0 Hz for capturing long pulse durations when using a sensor with a long discharge time constant.
  • A clamped output feature (when AC coupled), used in repetitive force applications, provides a positive-only signal that electronically re-zeros each pulse before the next cycle.
  • Measurements 0 Hz to 100 kHz with AC/DC coupling selection per channel
  • Auto zero function to negate DC bias when DC coupling enabled
  • Positive peak performance measurements with clamped output in 
  • AC coupled mode 
  • Incremental gain from x0.1 to x200
  • AC/DC coupling selectable per channel
  • TEDS support
  • Front panel display and keypad
  • CE conformity 

Typical applications include:

  • Use with ICP force, and pressure sensors that have long discharge time constants
  • Stamping and press monitoring 
  • Machinery process monitoring
  • Material fatigue testing
  • Low frequency vibration testing

The 482C series of signal conditioners are 4 channel bench top units. The 483C series of signal conditioners are 8 channel rack mounted units. The same signal conditioning electronics are used in comparable 4 and 8 channel models.

Both series include basic stand-alone units as well as units with more powerful features such as a front panel keypad and display or an Ethernet port for computer control. Additional features include gain, filtering, LED fault indicators, and TEDS capability.

MCSC Control Software
All signal conditioners that have an RS-232 or Ethernet interface are supplied with PCB’s Multi-Channel Signal Conditioner control software. This easy to use software displays a table of the unit’s current settings for each channel. Users can change any setting by simply changing values in the table. Controllable settings include sensor input type, gain, filtering, and excitation current.
