From Sen­sor to Data Ac­qui­si­tion

The lean IFTA mea­sure­ment chain: Qual­i­ty under ex­treme con­di­tions

The lean high-tem­per­a­ture mea­sure­ment chain from IFTA GmbH helps to save com­po­nents and thus sim­pli­fies in­stal­la­tion and main­te­nance. Sources of error are min­i­mized, sig­nal qual­i­ty is im­proved and costs are sus­tain­ably re­duced. With the user-friend­ly sig­nal and charge gen­er­a­tor IFTA ChargeGen­er­a­tor com­mis­sion­ing be­comes sim­ple and error-free.

Com­par­i­son Between Con­ven­tion­al So­lu­tions & the Lean IFTA So­lu­tion

Con­ven­tion­al so­lu­tions rely on ex­ter­nal am­pli­fiers and gal­van­ic iso­la­tors to pro­vide the sig­nal from a sen­sor as a volt­age or cur­rent sig­nal for data ac­qui­si­tion. Typ­i­cal­ly, these am­pli­fiers and iso­la­tors are sup­plied by the sen­sor man­u­fac­tur­ers and re­quire their spe­cif­ic power sup­ply and con­fig­u­ra­tion.

Our so­lu­tion in­te­grates gal­van­ic iso­la­tion into the AD4 se­ries input mod­ules. In ad­di­tion, the AD4Pro even in­te­grates am­pli­fiers for a va­ri­ety of sen­sors. This elim­i­nates the need for ex­ter­nal am­pli­fiers and iso­la­tors and makes the mea­sure­ment chain much lean­er. Sources of error are min­i­mized and costs are saved.

Ad­van­tages of the Lean IFTA Mea­sure­ment Chain

Im­prove Qual­i­ty

The re­duced num­ber of com­po­nents en­ables a bet­ter sig­nal-to-noise ratio and high­er re­li­a­bil­i­ty.

Save time

The in­te­grat­ed power sup­ply via IEPE al­lows sim­pli­fied and faster in­stal­la­tion and min­i­mizes sources of error.

Save costs

The lean mea­sure­ment chain ef­fec­tive­ly re­duces costs for com­po­nents and main­te­nance due to its de­sign.
