PCT56 – Sensor Conditioning and Calibration Trainer

PCT56 is a trainer designed to introduce the essentials of signal conditioning applicable to process measurement sensors.

Description

PCT56 is a trainer designed to introduce the essentials of signal conditioning applicable to process measurement sensors. It comprises an electronic console with inputs for sensors with three different types of electrical output, voltage current and resistance. The resistance input can be configured as 2 terminal or a 4 terminal bridge drive.

Controls on the console allow for ranging, fine scaling and offsetting of the measured values, the output being displayed on a 3.5 digit LCD display. Terminals allow the voltages to be monitored at each stage (voltmeter required). Thus many different sensors with different electrical outputs can be investigated and calibrated on this equipment.

For training purposes, the PCT56 is supplied with three pressure sensors of the same range, but different electrical outputs, plus a simple pressure vessel which can be pressurized using a hand pump.

The pressure vessel also incorporates a fitting for a reference instrument, such as the Armfield H12-8 digital pressure meter. The calibration vessel is fitted with a direct reading Bourdon gauge to give continuous indication of pressure inside the vessel for safety purposes.
