Description

Applied Measurements SGA load cell amplifier / load cell signal conditioner is designed to provide a high stability, high speed, conditioned analogue output from up to four 350Ω strain gauge bridges connected in parallel.

The SGA load cell signal conditioner is capable of working with very low-level input signals right down to 0.06mV/V and amplifying them into a stable, high-level industry standard process signal such as 0-10Vdc or 4-20mA.

The high-speed load cell signal conditioner is housed in a rugged ABS enclosure rated to IP67 making it suitable for use in a wide range of industrial locations.

Other features of the load cell amplifier include straightforward configuration using non-interactive zero & span controls and variable low-pass filter to allow fine tuning for any application.

There are two versions of the load cell amplifier available: the SGA-A model which requires a 110 or 240Vac supply, and the SGA-D which operates from an 18-24Vdc supply.

The SGA load cell amplifier can be supplied fully-wired and calibrated with any strain gauge transducer from our wide range listed in the associated products section below.

    Applied Measurements’ Displacement Transducers Make Tracks Through Turkey

    Marmaray Tunnel Displacement Monitoring Inside Tunnel

    Applied Measurements were asked to design a bespoke bridge monitoring system for Turkey’s new rail tunnel – The Marmaray Project. We created a bespoke bridge monitoring system using 3 off 50mm AML/SGD displacement transducers, forming a triaxial measurement of each joint. The AML/SGD series of displacement transducers utilise strain gauge technology to convert the linear movement of the joints within the tunnel into an analogue electrical signal. The AML/SGD series of displacement transducers were chosen for their excellent accuracy (0.1%), coupled with their high resolution and long-term stability, making them a perfect transducer for The Marmaray Project.
