MAS10

Strain Gauge Signal Conditioner

The standard MAS10 signal conditioner combines a regulated excitation power supply with low level amplifier providing both voltage and current outputs. The strain gauge option adds bridge completion for ¼ and ½ bridge inputs suitable for stress analysis. The MAS10 features high stability, suitable for most industrial and research applications. Excitation is regulated over a broad range for compatibility with miniature sensors as well as commonly available pressure, force, torque and acceleration transducers. Excitation current is sufficient to drive up to four 350Ω load cells in multi-load cell applications. All inputs and outputs are surge-protected for factory and field installations. Gain is set by links (7 combinations) plus continuous adjustment for best stability over the wide dynamic range of inputs and outputs provided by MAS10. Other available features are:



  • 1) Optional shunt calibration provides a quick check of integrity of the transducer, it’s wiring, and gain setting.

  • 2) Strain gauge option, adds bridge completion for ¼ and ½ including 3 wire quarter bridge configuration for both 120Ω (providing maximum 5V excitation for sensor) and 350Ω (providing 10V excitation for sensor) strain gauges. Most sensitive range has full scale of 600micro-strain (10V excitation).

  • 3) Custom set-up to customer requirement; specify input, output and excitation level at time of order for MeasureX laboratory calibration.
