The Laureate AC RMS input transmitter and signal conditioner provides six voltage input ranges and four current input ranges, all factory calibrated and jumper selectable. A special 5.000A range utilizes a built-in 0.01 ohm shunt to accept the output of 5A current transformers, with no need for a stepdown transformer. The current readings can easily be scaled digitally as needed. High common mode rejection allows stable readings with current shunts located on the high side of the line. Digital filtering is selectable for noisy signals.
True RMS precision circuitry is used to determine the root-mean-square of complex waveforms from DC to 10 kHz. Spikes up to 3.0 times the maximum of each range are accurately measured.
Accuracy to 0.03% of full scale for signals from DC to 15 kHz and signal amplitude down to 0. The crest factor (Vp / Vrms) is 3.0 at full scale, increasing to 300 for a signal amplitude of 1% of full scale.
True RMS readings in as little as one 50/60 Hz AC line cycle are unmatched in the industry. Such a high read rate allows anomalies to be detected and alarmed before they become expensive problems. On/off control and alarm can be achieved dual solid state relays, which are standard. Transmitter can also capture peak and valley for times as short as one 50/60 Hz AC power line cycle.
AC or DC coupling is jumper selectable. AC coupling accommodates signals from 10 Hz to 15 kHz and is suitable for applications such as measuring the ripple on a DC power supply. DC coupling accommodates signals from 0 Hz to 15 kHz. Multiple integral cycles are averaged for signals above 50/60 Hz. A single cycle is captured for signals from 3 Hz to 50/60 Hz. Below 3 Hz and at DC, the capture rate is every 333 ms.
Standard features of Laureate LTE transmitters and signal conditioners include:
Discovery and configuration of Laureate Ethernet Nodes is easily achieved with Laurel's Node Manager Software, and the discovered transmitters can then be programmed using Laurel's Instrument Setup Software. Both softwares run on a PC under MS Windows and can be downloaded from this website at no charge.
