Bullet New Plug & Play Smart TEDS IEEE 1451.4 Compliant Transmitter SST-LV

 

To operate this great time and cost saving, self-calibrating transmitter, connect it to a TEDS compatible Load Cell or Torque Sensor and the SST-LV will automatically self-calibrate, saving valuable engineering time and cost consistent with calibration requirements.

The SST-LV may also be used with a non-TEDS Load Cell or Torque Sensor, the SST-LV Transmitter and can be easily programmed using a PC with an RS232 port and Instrument Setup (IS) software.

The SST-LV may be powered from 12-30 Vac or 10-48 Vdc. The SST-LV Has an Isolated transducer excitation output that is selectable between 5Vdc or 10Vdc. There are Dual solid-state relays and an Isolated 4-20 mA, 0-20 mA or 0-10V analog output. Included are three Isolated serial data transmitter output (RS232, Half-duplex RS485, full-duplex RS485) and three serial protocols available, selectable with our downloadable (IS) software (Modbus RTU, Modbus ASCII and Custom ASCII). Isolation to 250V rms is provided for power, signal input, analog output, relay outputs, and communications. Isolation adds safety and avoids possible ground loops. The transducer excitation output is isolated to 50V from signal ground.

Interfacing the SST-LV Load Cell Transmitter to a TEDS IEEE 1451.4 compliant Load Cell / Torque Sensor is as easy as plugging a mouse into a computer, making it a true plug-and-play experience.
