RDP Electronics Ltd. - PRODUCT NEWS

A low-cost solution to strain measurement. RDP Electronics Ltd have announced a simple, cost-effective means of measuring strain. Requiring no expensive, customised equipment, RDP Electronics’ solution is based on its muti-channel Series 600 modular measurement system. This system is quickly set-up and outputs directly to a PC. As an example of the ease of assembly, a measurement system comparing force and strain involves connecting as many strain gauges as required to RDP’s 628 strain gauge amplifier modules, setting the gauge factor and strain range, zeroing the output, connecting a PC via a 650 module (with a copy of RDP’s freeware downloaded and installed from www.rdpe.com) and taking the measurements. When the load is applied, measurements are fed via the 628 strain gauge amplifier to the 650 module from where an RS232 output links to a PC for data collection and graphical display of force vs. strain using Microsoft Excel®. This measurement solution not only saves capital equipment cost but also its simple setup procedure saves an engineer’s valuable time. _____________________________________________ For more information, please contact :- RDP Electronics Limited Grove Street, Heath Town, Wolverhampton WV10 0PY.
