Testing and Calibrating Signal Conditioning Systems with the Portable Signal Generator

Signal Source

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

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

Features

The 1510A is designed to handle cabling and wiring troubleshooting, machinery speed signal simulation, low-voltage bridge mode (microvolt DC output) sensor signal simulation, audio signal simulation and gas turbine maintenance. It can produce precise and accurate charge, voltage and speed signals crucial for system troubleshooting, testing and calibration.

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