Definition: Signal Conditioning is a process that electronically prepares signals for processing, usually between stages of an overall signal-processing scheme.
For any particular testing task, technicians pack dozens of standalone signal conditioners into crowded racks, spend hours wiring hundreds of channel-ins to channel-outs, and verifying each connection…and that’s before the actual testing begins.
DSPCon high-speed, high-channel-count data acquisition solutions save you time & money by building signal conditioning right inside of the data acquisition system, eliminating the need for test engineers to purchase and carry a multitude of separate, plug-in signal conditioning modules.
DSPCon’s fully integrated signal conditioning feature is software-driven, self-calibrating, and designed to support nearly all types of sensors:
- strain gages & pressure transducers that require constant-voltage-excited resistive bridges
- single-arm strain gauges & resistive thermal devices (RTDs) that require constant-current excitation
- Voltage output devices
- IEPE (Integrated Electronic Piezo-Electric) feature supports constant-current powered transducers allowing convenient, automatic transfer of information from industry-standard sensors. Sensor calibration info may also be entered manually.
