Alliance Sensor’s LVDT signal conditioner designed for power generation applications.
Alliance Sensors Group released its S2A, a LVDT signal conditioner with cyber security tamper prevention and notification features. The conditioner has been engineered to work with the widest range of LVDTs, RVDTs, and inductive half-bridge sensors including 3-wire GE LVRTs and GE gas turbine buck-boost style LVDTs. The S2A’s diagnostics can detect at least 11 fault conditions, including common hook-up errors and Cybersecurity tampering attempts. The signal conditioner’s internal microprocessor calculates jumper connections for gain, range, etc. The new S2A DIN-rail-mounted module can be “hot swapped” into an existing installation, with original calibration data saved and then reloaded into a new module via its RS-485 port.
