The LCA15 intelligent Strain Gauge amplifier offers both 4 to 20mA and 0 to 10 volt analogue outputs, from any standard Strain Gauge input. 1 pass calibration and setting of the analogue output range, make the unit extremely user friendly; being set up by a simple hand held or on board programmer/display. Auto Tare and Peak Hold (if set) on the analogue output are operated via volt free contact closures.
Output options include:- Relay Set Points Programmed in engineering units, with In Flight compensation and Hysteresis settings are available for control or alarm purposes.
Communications:- To read any value, change set points or any other parameter via:
RS232/RS485 (RC3) - Formats include MANTRABUS, ASCII, MODBUS RTU
The RS232 output can be configured to provide a printer output. Activated by a contact closure, displays the current live value, with header message, engineering units, auto incrementing batch number and a real time if required.
Options:- 9-32V DC power supply (LS3), Stainless Steel case sealed to IP65 (LSS), Available without its case as a separate Eurocard PCB assembly (LCB)
