Signal integrity starts with quality measurement and good equipment. However, even with the best equipment signals can be degraded if the equipment is not properly installed or is not protected by signal conditioners. Signal integrity can be greatly impacted by poor shielding and wiring practices. The biggest factor is ground loop errors (ground noise). Our signal conditioner products protect your expensive electronic equipment against ground loops with up to 1500 V of isolation.
Isolation is one way to eliminate ground loop errors caused by ground noise and other such problems. Isolation means using one of many electronic methods to interrupt the connections between two grounds while passing the correct signal with little or no loss of accuracy. Without a way for ground currents to flow, these currents can't induce signal errors.
FC series signal conditioners are theperfect solution for converting process, temperature and other electrical signals into voltage or current signals for transmission or input to a PLC. FC series signal conditioners offer 1500v isolation between the input and output to help eliminate electrical noise. Features include easily accessible potentiometer adjustment of the output span and offset, (with the exception of FC-33), slim DIN-rail or side-mount cases and removable terminal blocks. FC series signal conditioners are ideal for use with PLCs, loop controllers, digital displays and any other applications requiring an isolated or analogue signal.
