The universal SensoTrans DMS P 32200 strain gauge transmitters provide connection possibilities for all standard strain gauge force transducers and strain gauge load cells in full bridge configuration.
They can be flexibly adapted to the respective measuring task using DIP and rotary encoder switches or via an IrDA® port.
3-port isolation with protective separation up to 300 V AC/DC according to EN 61140 ensures optimal protection of personnel and equipment as well as unaltered transmission of the measurement signals. The SensoTrans DMS P 32200 offer maximum performance in the smallest of spaces.
Adjusting the zero point and sensitivity to the individual strain gauge sensor is particularly convenient via the infrared port, for example using a PDA. Sensors with known characteristics can be very easily calibrated using 4 rotary encoder switches and 8 DIP switches. Special measuring tasks can be solved with SensoTrans devices that Knick configures according to individual specifications. Fixed-range devices without switches are used, for example, when manipulations or mix-ups must be precluded.
Knick offers the SensoTrans DMS P 32200 transmitter with SIL approval for applications with high demands on functional safety. The requirements of EN 61508 were implemented through specially developed hardware and software. The implemented fail-safe concept makes use of structural measures at the device level (redundancy of system components) and diagnostic methods for selective fault detection. The product is SIL 2 approved (EN 61508) by an authorized body (TÜV Rheinland). SIL 3 in redundant implementations.
