B&R introduces X20 modules for strain gauges
B&R has added 2 new analog input modules to its X20 I/O series that can be used to digitize signals from strain gauges: the X20AIA744 with 2 full-bridge strain gauge inputs and the X20AIB744 with 4 full-bridge strain gauge inputs. Up to 4 strain gauge channels can now be housed in a module just as thin as a single-channel unit. Users save both equipment costs and control cabinet space.
The X20AIA744 and X20AIB744 modules work with 4-wire strain gauge load cells. Compensation in the measurement system eliminates absolute uncertainty in the measurement circuit, such as component toler-ances, effective bridge voltage or zero offset. The modules each have 24-bit converter resolution.
