Universal signal conditioner

  • 07-Nov-2010 01:11 EST

With its built-in, high-precision dc and constant current supply, Dewetron’s DAQP-STG module enables direct connection of quarter, half, and full bridges as well as piezoresistive bridges, resistors, potentiometers, and Pt100 to Pt1000 sensors. The signal conditioner can also directly measure voltages to ±10 V. Higher voltages to ±200 V, thermocouples, and IEPE (ICP) or charge sensors are supported using modular smart interfaces. Primarily designed as a high-end bridge amplifier, the module meets all requirements for strain gauge/bridge sensors. It features 13 predefined measurement ranges from ±0.1 to ±1000 mV/V, but any other sensitivity can be programmed. For example, an unusual number such as 2.27 mV/V can be entered. This flexibility allows the engineer to make full use of the dynamic capabilities of the measuring system. The DAQP-STG’s flexibility makes it suitable for very exacting measurements, such as resistance from 25 to 100 kΩ, or for very fast thermocouple measurements with electrical isolation.

Get ready for the “pod” car: Ford announced today that it intends to mass-produce a driverless, fully autonomous vehicle for commercial ride-sharing or ride-hailing service in 2021. The vehicle apparently will be the embodiment of today’s notion of the driverless-vehicle extreme: it will have no steering wheel, brake or accelerator pedals, said president and CEO Mark Fields during the announcement at the company’s Palo Alto, CA, research campus.
Model ASUH miniature hybrid high-integrity pressure transducer from KA Sensors is designed for use in rugged environments from -65 to +300ºF (-54 to +149ºC) and vibration levels of more than 20 g.
Time of flight (ToF) cameras are ready to let drivers control some of the many options of today’s infotainment systems with a mere wave of their hand. ToF-based systems can also monitor drivers to see if they’re drowsy or not watching roadways.
While OEMs wait for NHTSA's V2X mandate they are discussing whether broad usage can be achieved without regulations.
