Isolated Strain-gage Chipset Module Joins 5B Conditioner Family

5B38 Has 10-kHz Bandwidth, 1,500-Vrms Isolation, Filtering; Provides 10-Volt Excitation; Amplified, MUXable ±5-Volt Output

The 5B38 Strain-Gage Input Module is another direct-application 5B Serial signal conditioner (Analog Dialogue 20-2). It provides the necessary excitation, conditioning, filtering, and amplification for 300-ohm to 10-kΩ full- or half-bridge strain gages, with input-to-output isolation of 1,500 Vrms—wich minimizes ground loops and suppresses voltage transients.
