JH5500 STRAIN GAUGE TRANSMITTER
DIN-RAIL MOUNT, FIXED RANGE
The Model JH5500 Strain Gauge Transmitter supplies excitation to a strain gauge or other resistance bridge, amplifies the bridge voltage and provides a proportional, isolated DC voltage or current output. A low-drift input amplifier maintains accurate readings under varying ambient conditions.
Red-green Quick-Check LEDs give a quick indication of the relative output. Red is brighter at the low end, green at high, while at mid-scale both are approximately equal. Red-only indicates offscale low while green-only indicates offscale high.
Standard transmitters include filtering to smooth measurements and minimize noise pickup. When fast response is needed, Option HS speeds the response time to approximately 1 millisecond. Other response speeds are available on special order.
Available options include AC and DC power choices and reverse-acting transmitter (decreasing output with increasing input).
Approximately 1 msec (See Specifications). Specify Option HS.
Model JH5500 snaps onto 35mm DIN rail. Connections are made to the front-panel terminals. The terminal strip unplugs to facilitate calibrating or replacing the transmitter.
Connections to the 8 terminals (top to bottom) are:
1: Input plus (bridge output).
2: Input minus (bridge output).
3: Bridge excitation plus.
4: Bridge excitation minus.
5: Output plus.
6: Output minus.
7: Power (AC or, if DC power option, DC plus).
8: Power (AC or, if DC power option, DC minus).
Standard: Under 100 milliseconds. Option HS: Approximately 95% complete in 1 msec. Frequency response 3dB down at approx. 600Hz.
