Signal Conditioning Amplifier System, Vishay Model A2
The A2 is an analog signal conditioner and amplifier system for strain gauges, strain-gauge-based transducers, thermocouples and various other sensors with high-level signals. Scalable in multiples of eight channels to a maximum of 128 for each system, the A2 features digital control of the system instrumentation and monitoring of the analog outputs, both locally on the control panel and remotely by Ethernet from a PC. The Model A2 is an embedded web server. All system, card and channel settings are accessible using simple HTTP (hypertext transfer protocol) commands or by using the graphical user interface provided by the system. Ordinary web browsers, such as Internet Explorer, can be used to control the system. The A2 is specially designed to function as the front-end for DAQ's and recorders accepting high-level analog signals.
