Dewesoft has released what it a powerful new UNI (universal) signal conditioner for Sirius DAQ systems.
UNI conditioners are capable of handling all popular sensors on the market, including strain gages, IEPE accelerometers and microphones, voltages, currents, LVDTs and more. The module is based on Sirius DualCoreADC technology, which provides >160dB of dynamic range. The amplifier also directly measures voltage from ±10mV to ±100V. Improved excitation current accuracy provides a constant current supply for quarter bridge strain gage applications.
Sirius UNI supports TEDS Class 1 and 2, which means that TEDS compatible sensors are automatically identified when they are connected, and easily set up in the software. Furthermore, the included DewesoftX software has a user-editable sensor database that makes setting up your tests faster, easier and more error-free than ever before.
Although the UNI module comes with a DB9 connector as standard, various Lemo connectors are available upon request. UNI is also available in both isolated and non-isolated versions, and with or without a counter input which is perfectly synchronized with the analog input.
The unit is also compatible with the company’s line of DSI adapters. These small adapters plug into Sirius UNI and convert it to handle a wide range of other input types, including LVDTs, low and medium level currents, charge sensors, thermocouples and more.
