Producing Accurate Charge and Speed Signals with the 1510A Portable Signal Generator and Calibrator

Signal Source

The 1510A portable signal generator and calibrator from MTI is designed to test the integrity of sensor signal conditioning electronics. This battery operated function generator, encased in a sturdy high visibility shell with a spill-proof keypad, is capable of being used in the laboratory, field or factory floor with the purpose of mimicking sensor signals. It mimics accelerometer, eddy current, strain gauge and other types of triangle, pulse, sinusoidal or digital pulse trains. The frequency response of the ensuing signal conditioning devices is examined by the sweep function.

A USB port allows remote control and programming of the unit. It is possible to program this signal source generator so as to produce two autonomous or synchronized signals of different standard signal waveforms (SQUARE, PULSE, SINE and TRIANGLE) and diverse frequencies up to 100 kHz. A Channel B offers speed synthesizer signal functionalities such as sweep function, odd pulse and single pulse.

Features

Built for cabling and wiring troubleshooting, audio signal simulation, machinery speed signal simulation, low-voltage bridge mode (microvolt DC output) sensor signal simulation and gas turbine maintenance, the 1510A can produce precise and accurate charge, voltage and speed signals vital for system troubleshooting, testing and calibration.

  • Handheld battery-powered
  • Voltage range: 0 to 9.99999 V pk
  • Voltage accuracy of 0.05% ± 0.1 mV
  • Portability and features are ideal for use among railroad signal servicing, power plant, test laboratories and a number of other laboratory uses
  • Used to mimic low level medical EKG and EEG signals for calibration
  • Has a variable phase control to mimic machinery imbalance conditions
  • Very accurate DC output can be used for calibrating electronic amplifiers’ gain settings such as strain gauge amplifiers
