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.

Lean IfTA Meas­ure­ment Chain

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.
