In-line strain gauge analogue amplifier to streamline calibration
A new in-line strain gauge amplifier from Mantracourt Electronics is set to streamline the calibration of a sensor thanks to its digital potentiometers and extremely simple and intuitive toolkit. Designed to convert strain gauge or load cell inputs into a 4-20 mA output, it provides more filtering than the existing embedded strain gauge amplifier range (ICA), and due to its small design, it can be easily integrated into compact installations.
Wireless sensor system designed to monitor wind speeds
A new wireless wind speed system aimed at the crane industry has been launched by Mantracourt. The new solution, comprising the wireless wind speed display (T24-DWS) and transmitter module (T24-WSSp), is pre-calibrated, making it simple and easy to use. It is a suitable solution for tower cranes, mobile cranes and crawler cranes, effectively monitoring wind speeds, transmitting the data to a display and fully conforming to the Radio Equipment Dir...
The USB strain module designed for speed
Manufacturers of strain gauge and load cell signal conditioners, wireless telemetry and high performance analogue to digital converters, Mantracourt Electronics has announced their latest sector-beating device: the FSU-SSB.
Wireless systems improve aircraft weighting
All aircraft gain weight over time and as such, it is vital to accurately weigh an aircraft. This is particularly the case in larger aeroplanes, with paint applied, painting and not stripping, configuration changes and cabin equipment modifications. On smaller crafts, such as lighter planes and helicopters, additional equipment such as cameras and communications apparatus will also add to the weight, as may certain repairs.
Wireless telemetry system chosen by Aussie research centre
An exciting vehicle testing project has been developed by Mantracourt Electronics working with an Australian distributor.
