Measuring Units
g, mm, s (Metric) or lbs., in, s (Imperial)
Data Channels
Filtered Force at 27 bit, distance at 32 bit, unfiltered force at 27 bit, two linear analogue inputs (range +/- 4.5V at 16 bit) or PT 100 temperature probe inputs (range –50 to 250°.C). Bi-phase digital encoder input at 16 bit suitable for any compatible linear or rotary extensometer.
Software Data Acquisition Rate
0.1–500 points per second (Exponent Connect Lite), or 0.1–2,000 points per second (Exponent Connect) for each data channel (except RS485)—oversampled at 16000 Hz.
Filtered Force
24 bit ADC oversampled at 16000 samples per second and digitally filtered to 2000 per second.
External Instrumentation Channels
Four channels of RS485. Each channel logs one sample per second and is suitable for external sensing of temperature, humidity etc.
Operating Options
Use the included software, keypad, or browser via tablet, mobile device, and personal computer to control the instrument.
PC Interface
Interface to PC through a standard USB or Ethernet
Operating Temperature
0 – 40°C
Operating Environment
Laboratory conditions. Dust and splash resistant.
Power supply
Universal mains input voltage
Firmware updates
Field updates can be transferred via PC software, web interface, or USB stick.
