The SEM1600/B is a “smart” powered bridge amplifier for use with strain gauges or load cell signals. The product has a built in capability to scale the input signal to a process value while the output stage offers either voltage, bipolar voltage or active / passive current re-transmission signals.
The product comes with an AC/DC power supply that will operate in the range (10 to 48) V DC and (10 to 32) V AC making the device ideal for battery operation. An additional volt free contact input is available for tare setting using a remote switch. The high precision input stage of the device allows for a bridge excitation voltage of 5V DC to be used as opposed to the traditional 10V DC. This reduces the power requirement for the bridge supply and up to four bridges (cells) may be connected to the input.
