CLIP — Analog Amplifier for Industrial Applications

Simply ‘clip on’ and get started! The CLIP analog amplifier comes in a lightweight plastic housing. It is designed for applications in production or test benches, and can be easily installed on DIN rails. CLIP modules have DC or CF supply and can be connected to all strain gauge transducers for measuring force, displacement or torque as well as load cells. Moreover, many modules are available for expansion and individual adaptation to respective applications. CLIP combines quick integration and ease of use, and is a cost-effective solution for reliably acquiring physical quantities in harsh industrial environments.

HBM accuracy class: 0.1
Measuring inputs for many common signals in production and test benches
Optional expansion with: current output, limit switch, tare module


Please note: Clip is available until the end of 2019 and is being replaced with the new and precise signal conditioner ClipX!
