Futek IDA100 digitally configurable strain gauge amplifier

Thursday, 20 October, 2016 | Supplied by: Metromatics Pty Ltd



The Futek IDA100 is a digitally configurable strain gauge amplifier that provides both analog and digital output via USB. The analog output can be used to send information directly to a PLC while the USB output can be used to simultaneously verify that the system is functioning correctly.

Manual adjustments cause unnecessary interruptions. Using the IDA100 eliminates the need for manual adjustment via dip switches and potentiometers so that micro-adjustments and calibrations can all be done electronically.

The analog output has a bandwidth of 1 kHz, while the digital output has a variable bandwidth of the selected sampling rate divided by 4. Powering the IDA100 via the 5 V USB connector also minimises introduction of noise into the sensor platform.

The IDA100 digital amplifier has a bipolar output with software-selectable excitation voltages of ±5 or ±10 VDC. It is also designed with an integrated 35 mm DIN rail clip. A high retention USB connector ensures that the power supply to the IDA100 will not be jeopardised should the connector experience a tug or pull during use.
