The NewTek NTC-6000 Qwik-Cal LVDT Signal Conditioner completes the measurement system for AC-operated LVDTs by providing the excitation and digital output required by many of today’s laboratory, industrial automation, and process control applications. Without internal electronics, AC-LVDTs can operate in extreme environments but require the NTC-6000 Signal Conditioner to convert position feedback into readable output for use by computers, PLCs, data acquisition systems, and data loggers.
Compatible with both new and legacy AC-LVDTs, RVDT, or LVRT half-bridge sensors, the NTC-6000 Signal Conditioner offers a variety of selectable excitation frequencies, analog output types (0-10V, 0-5V, 0.5 – 4.5V, +5V, +10V, 4-20mA) as well as digital communications to a host computer via RS-485 output. The RS-485 port also supports the hot swapability of sensors by saving set-up parameters and automatic excitation synchronization for multiple unit systems.
Offering an intuitive AC-LVDT setup process for easy calibration, this user-friendly signal conditioner features front panel null indicators and pushbuttons to set zero and full-scale output positions along with automatic excitation synchronization for multiple unit systems.
These smart signal conditioners also self-diagnose for LVDT failure, disconnects, or short circuits. In addition, the advanced NTC-6000 Signal Conditioner offers cybersecurity lockout and tamper detection to protect against hacks.
Available in stock for quick shipment, the NTC-6000 Signal Conditioner comes with a two-year warranty.
