Product Specifications

Specifications

Bridge configuration: Quarter, quarter dynamic, half, and full bridges, switch selectable; can also be used as general purpose differential amplifier
Bridge completion: Switch selects either 120 ohm or 350 ohm internal precision completion resistors
Bridge excitation: Front panel adjustable, isolated 1.25 VDC to 15.0 VDC; front panel on/off switch; monitor jacks provided for voltmeter
Bridge balance: Front panel pushbutton or remote control activation of bridge balance cycle; LED indicates unbalanceable condition

Battery backup retains autobalance setting while main power is off

Output limit: Front panel LED lights if output signal exceeds 1V RMS
Output noise: 2.5 microvolts RMS RTI max, DC to 32kHz at G=1000
Power: Model 843 power supply module provides unregulated ±24V to all modules in rack, plus unregulated isolated supply (one per module) for bridge excitation
Mechanical: 19″W x 7″H x 14″D, seven module rack adapter, Model 4007-137; one- and two-module desktop cases, Model 4009-107 and 4010-111MODEL 635 STRAIN GAGE AMPLIFIER RACK
