Compact accelerometer amplifier simplifies measurementMonoDAQ is launching the MonoDAQ E-ACC accelerometer amplifier, saying this innovative device saves costs and increases the accuracy of acceleration and vibration measurement because it can be placed near the sensor, thereby eliminating the need for long runs of analogue cabling.

The new MonoDAQ E-ACC is a compact device in a robust aluminium housing; inside there is an analogue front end with 18kHz alias-free bandwidth, 24-bit ADC converter with up to 40kS/s sample rate and an EtherCAT interface. EtherCAT is a key factor in enabling devices to be located at distances of up to 50m node-to-node. Devices are simply daisy-chained with a single network cable that carries signal and power. Synchronisation below 1us is ensured along a virtually-unlimited chain of MonoDAQ E-ACC devices.

Each MonoDAQ-E device has a fully isolated front end with high dynamic performance as well as TEDS support for sensor auto-recognition.

MonoDAQ E-ACC devices come bundled with powerful DEWESoft software that enables engineers without specialist electronics knowledge to measure their phenomena of interest – usually acceleration, force, pressure, temperature, etc. Analogue, digital, GPS and video signals can be measured in the same environment and synchronised without any customisation - no programming is needed to make a high-fidelity measurement.
