MTS Sensors, a division of MTS Systems Corporation released Endevco Model 4418 low-noise signal conditioner providing test engineers with a new battery-operated solution for lab and field testing. The Model 4418 signal conditioner is designed to work with piezoresistive bridge sensors and differential voltage sensors, including Endevco’s line of piezoresistive accelerometers, piezoresistive pressure sensors, variable capacitance accelerometers and angular rate sensors. The unit provides the excitation supply to the sensor and includes switchable gain, optional filter and zero output tuning. The Model 4418 is a small, lightweight single channel device and is unique in terms of its portability and functionality.
The compact size and full-day battery life of the internal lithium battery make the Model 4418 signal conditioner ideal for use in low channel count R&D applications where AC power is not available.
