Signal conditioning improves the performance and reliability of the measurement system. A typical system includes the signal conditioning hardware, which works as an interface between the raw signals and transducer outputs to the measurement device. The conditioning amplifier will supply the system with signal amplification, electrical isolation, filtering, powering of transducers, overload detection, and Transducer Electronic Datasheet (TEDS) support.
The main types of conditioning inputs are:
- DeltaTron® (or IEPE)
- Bridge and differential
Used for powering and amplifing signals from Microphones.
Used for conditioning os signals from piezoelectric acceleroemters and preamplifiers with built-in electronics.
Used for conditioning of signals from piezoelectric transducers such as charge accelerometers, force transducers, impact hammers or hydrophones.
