Type ELD203 Dual Channel Rack Mounting Digital Indicator

The Type ELD203 dual channel rack mounting digital indicator is a versatile component which can be used to indicate the tilt angles measured by any two of the range of ELECTROLEVEL tilt transducers.
The measured angles are displayed on 3 1/2 digit LCD meters
The ELD203 can be powered by its internal universal AC mains adaptor, or use an external unregulated DC power supply from a wide range of sources anywhere in the range 6-28Volts.

Type ELD203 Dual Channel rack mounting Digital Indicator.

This low power consumption unit can be scaled to provide a digital reading representing common standard units e.g
  • arc-seconds
  • decimal degrees
  • millimetres per metre
or custom scaled to user significant units e.g millimetres of deflection over a standard base line.

Voltage output signals are provided which are suitable for driving external meters, data loggers, data acquisition systems and power amplifiers for control systems.

Proprietary circuit techniques match the Signal Conditioning Unit to the attached sensors and minimise the effects of temperature scale drift and temperature datum drift, thus contributing to the high precision of an ELECTROLEVEL system

Where long cables to an external port need to be driven, the ELD203 should be placed within 100 metres of the sensing heads and the optional 4-20mA current loop used to drive the longer cable. (requires 24Volt supply)

The standard Dual Channel rack mounting Digital Indicator is housed in a standard 483 mm 2U rack mounting unit.

Connections to the ELD203 are made with terminal strips at the rear of the unit. Rear panel mounted connectors are available as an option.

The ELD203 is one of a family of Signal Conditioning Units suitable for driving the ELECTROLEVEL tilt transducers. Other units in the range include signal conditioning units, indicators with analogue displays, with limit relays which operate at user definable angles and units which provide digital outputs in a variety of interface specifications.;
For specialist applications, the Signal Conditioning Unit circuits can be supplied for mounting in Standard Rack systems with multi-channel cards and microprocessor control of the data acquisition function
