The Models 5D70 and 5D70V are general-purpose single-channel conditioners for input of pressure, force, torque, weight, and other variables measured by conventional DC-excited strain gage transducers.
The 5D70 delivers filtered analog output of ±5 VDC, while the 5D70V produces ±10 VDC.
For both models, advanced analog design directly addresses the problem of measurement inaccuracy in industrial environments of high electromechanical noise. Exceptional signal stability and accuracy over a remarkably wide range of sensor inputs are achieved through
- remotely sensed excitation, user-selectable
- chopper-stabilized low-drift amplification
- configurable low-pass active filtering
- "absolute" and "two-point" software-based calibration
- effective signal isolation and ESD protection.
For both the Model 5D70V and the Model 5D70S (the "S" Option version of the Model 5D70), a 10-pin header for a Phoenix Style screw-terminal connector replaces the Model 5D70's standard DB25 connector for the module's power, configuration, logic, and analog output wiring. Ensuring secure cable connections to individual 5D modules, these versions are intended primarily for single-point or single-mount module applications. Since the logic "enable" line is not provided in this case, both analog outputs are continuously available for both the 5D70V and the 5D70S.
