MODEL 144 ACCELEROMETER CONDITIONER

Description

The Model 144 is a compact vibration monitoring system consisting of two single-channel modules mounted in a 6”H x 8”W x 12”D portable case. Constant current excitation is provided for an accelerometer charge converter, whose signal is tightly filtered and monitored for exceeding a front-panel-set level. If the level is exceeded, relay contacts complete an external alarm circuit. A 4-20mA output also transmits the vibration level to other monitoring equipment. The Model 144  features three output modes: displacement output at discrete frequency, 3 1/2 digit readout  of RMS-DC output, and relay trip protection.
