Handheld test and measurement instrument that produces transducer outputs introduced by Meggitt Sensing

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif., 5 Oct. 2011. The Meggitt PLC Sensing Systems division in San Juan Capistrano, Calif., is introducing the Endevco model 4830A handheld, lightweight battery-operated electronic instrument that simulates transducer outputs to verify instrumentation settings and cable integrity in aerospace and automotive test cells and other test and measurement systems. Available output signals from the model 4830A include single-ended and differential charge (pC), single-ended voltage (mV), and current-sinking ISOTRON (IEPE).

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif., 5 Oct. 2011. The Meggitt PLC Sensing Systems division in San Juan Capistrano, Calif., is introducing the Endevco model 4830A handheld, lightweight battery-operated electronic instrument that simulates transducer outputs to verify instrument settings and cable integrity in aerospace and automotive test cells and other test and measurement systems.Available output signals from the model 4830A include single-ended and differential charge (pC), single-ended voltage (mV), and current-sinking ISOTRON (IEPE).A tachometer (TTL) output signal enables the unit to function as an on-site instrumentation testing and servicing. Simulated outputs are available in either English or metric units over an available frequency range of 1 Hz to 10 KHz, with an adjustable output amplitude as high as 10,000 pC or mV pk and with overall noise of less than 2 mV or 2 pC rms.

The 4830A uses a menu-driven 80-character liquid crystal display to establish appropriate settings. The key panel contains four sealed switches (per IP65) marked with arrows for cursor control. It has a manual on/off switch and can be set for automatic power shutdown.

Units are powered by internal rechargeable nine-volt batteries. For more information contact Meggitt Sensing Systems online at www.meggittsensingsystems.com.
