Measurement technology specialist HBM presents a new version of its AED9101D digital transducer for faster weighing technology.
The HBM AED9101D transducer electronics process signals from strain gauge full bridge transducers, making them digitally available via various interfaces such as Profibus, DeviceNet or RS232/422/485, free from interference and even over greater distances.
In the new “D” version, a stable thermal state is reached sooner after turn on, making the scale ready for accurate operation almost twice as fast. Another advantage is that the maximum number of load cells per amplifier is independent of the supply voltage.
"According to the International Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML), their International Recommendations state that check weighers, for example, have demands for a stable state of ‘zero’ with a very high display resolution,” says Reiner Schrod, International Product Manager for HBM. “If an instrument needs 5 or 10 minutes to heat up, then the weighing instrument is not available during this time. Users want to power on and start the weigher immediately and the new AED9101D helps them do that."
The AED9101D can be used in various applications. Typical examples are batching scales, check weighers, filling scales and many more static or dynamic scales.
