Remote charge converter

  • 10-Nov-2009 08:41 EST

Endevco’s Model 2771C-XX ultra-low-noise remote charge converter is used with charge output piezoelectric sensors within mechanical system health monitoring, nuclear power plant/regenerative energy, and environmental testing applications. The device offers a rugged two-wire, single-ended design that operates from constant current power (4-20 mA). Both signal output and current to the RCC are carried along the same wire. Housed in a rugged, small package, the charge converter offers broadband noise range down to 5 µVrms, with a frequency response of 0.4 to 50 kHz. Units can withstand shock loads of up to 100 g peak and are radiation tested to 1.0 Mrad. They come in three different fixed gains of 0.1 mV/pC, 1.0 mV/pc, and 10 mV/pC and can support Transducer Electronic Data Sheet technology for smart sensor and larger channel count applications.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
