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.
The reduced number of components enables a better signal-to-noise ratio and higher reliability.
The integrated power supply via IEPE allows simplified and faster installation and minimizes sources of error.
The lean measurement chain effectively reduces costs for components and maintenance due to its design.
