Dynamic strain measurement requires response, stability, SN ratio and high resistance against external noise. Kyowa’s dynamic strain measuring instruments satisfy these requirements with advanced technologies including high performance ICs, high-density circuits, CST (capacitance self-tracking) and thorough environmental tests.
In addition, measurements have recently become complicated and diverse; dynamic strain measuring equipment now requires versatile functions. The multi signal conditioner MCF-A series meets these requirements and therefore supports conditioner card usage with not only strain gauges and strain gauge-based transducers, but also thermocouples and frequency conversion type sensors, such as rotary encoders and piezoelectric sensors.
Depending on the bridge excitation, dynamic strain measuring instruments are classified as two types: AC and DC. The AC type is a strain amplifier that is suitable for measuring small strain from strain gauges, while the DC type signal conditioners are for measuring large strain from transducers.
