Signal conditioners are designed for processing analogue signal of transducers in order to meet the requirements of a data acquisition device so that the computer-based measurement systems can effectively and accurately recognise the signals.
Signal conditioning may include amplification, filtering, converting, range matching, isolation and any other processes required to make sensor output suitable for processing for the next stage.Signal amplifier can bring up the millivolt output of a sensor where the signal resolution and signal-to-noise ratio have been increased for an analogue-digital converter (ADC) to recognise and process.
Signal conditioners normalise the sensor outputs and filter those signals to certain levels that can be read by computerised devices, e.g.. Data Acquisition (DAQ) Systems.
Compare to analogue signals, digital signals can provide a high degree of immunity from electrical noise and support extended transmission distances and are easily connected to a computer. Therefore, digital USB sensor interface or Digital Conditioners are developed to enable analogue inputs to be converted into a digital format such as RS232, RS485 or even Ethernet and with an Ethernet output, the input signal can be read across the entire network or internet based on the configuration setup.
Lorenz Signal Conditioning product and system are ideal solutions for all process and testing applications, and USB interfaces are available to transfer digitised analogue sensor signals to the PC and signals can be visualised by the Configuration and Evaluation Software VS2.
