MODEL 149 DUAL CHANNEL CHARGE AMPLIFIER

Features

  • Compact – 16 channels per GPSC rack
  • Acceleration/displacement outputs
  • Controls in engineering units
  • Internal calibration

 

Description

The Model 149 is an economical, two-channel-per- module charge amplifier that plugs into Encore’s 19″ GPSC Instrumentation Rack.  Up to eight modules (16 channels) can be placed in a single GPSC rack.  Modules are available for strain, F/V, charge, accelerometer, proximitor, DC signal and LVDT signal conditioning. The GPSC rack features and integrate AC power supply that provides the required unregulated DC voltages to operate the modules.  The continuously adjustable, ten-turn locking dial sets channel sensitivity from 1 to 110pC/g.  Outputs are AC acceleration and RMS/DC displacement.  The front panel features a push button or remote CAL command that applies a 1000pC 350Hz calibration signal to both channels simultaneously.
