The Mainframe provides an isolated line operated power suppy, transducer excitation, calibration and remote control interface. This mainframe also has the necessary power supplies to accommodate all transducer modules with potentiometric balance, integral amplifier, high-level outputs and common mode voltages to ±10 Volts.



  • Ten Wire Guarded Input
  • Isolated Voltage / Current Excitation
  • Voltage Substitution Calibration
  • 10 Volt, 100 mA Output Amplifier
  • Optically Isolated Remote Control
  • Triple Shielded Power Transformer

Plug-in Transducer Conditioning Modules are locked in place when installed in the mainframe. The mainframe and transducer module are a complete line operated instrument which can be used in a 10-channel rack adapter or a single channel case.
