The AED makes implementation of your process control systems easy and convenient.
Turn your analog load cells into digital all-rounders
The AED converts the signals supplied by analog load cells into digital data. AED enables you to benefit from digital precision, with the systems you already have saving you time and money.
AED is easy, direct and efficient. Start up your AED quickly, since the complete transducer electronics can be set up directly through the PC. Furthermore, only minor installation work is required thanks to the bus interfaces the system
The AED measurement chain consists of the following 3 components:
- The amplifier board AD103C
- Basic devices with additional interfaces, EMC protection, etc.
- The AED Panel32 software
AED Amplifier Boards
The AD103C digital transducer electronics makes your process control and monitoring tasks easy and convenient. AD103C digitizes the signals from analog load cells and transducers without the need to make any new investments. AED enables you to benefit from the speed and precision provided by digital weighing technology, even with existing systems.
Easy, direct, and powerful: Start up the AD103C transducer electronics in the twinkling of an eye. The whole electronics can be set up directly through the PC. The bus interfaces of the appropriate AED basic devices minimize installation work.
AD103C is a DC amplifier board for resistive transducers. It is equally fit for dynamic and static applications as checkweighers, multi-station combination weighers, sorting plants, dynamic postal scales, and filling plants. The RS-232 interface ensures direct connection to the PC.
- DC amplifier for resistive transducers
- Designed for static and dynamic applications
- Direct computer connection via RS-232 interface
- Test report for 10000 d, class III according to OIML R76
- High transmission rate and resolution
- Memory for user settings
- Command set for filling and dosing functions.
The AD104C amplifier board can be used together with analog load cells and transducers as a digital all-rounder. Equipped with four trigger functions and two limit value switches with hysteresis, the AD104C amplifier provide an alternative way of adapting existing solutions to the HBM digital concept (FIT and AED).
With an adjustable output rate of up to 200 measured values per second, the handling, filter modes, analysis and setting options are also suitable for simple dosing and filling machines.
The AD104C is available with RS-232 and RS-485 4-wire interfaces. The AD105C offers RS-485 2-wire communication as an alternative.
AD104C is only available in units of 50 pieces. Demo kit available on request.
