Tacuna Systems is hard at work!  We have developed a revised version of our popular amplifier and have entered in to the production phase.  The current amplifiers will continue to be supported but all new designs should use the revised amplifiers.

The new amplifiers feature:
  • Enhanced noise mitigation techniques
  • Vibration resistant circuitry for harsh environments (no low voltage piezoelectric effects)
  • Ability to handle lower bridge resistances (down to 10 ohms in special cases)
  • Mounting holes and optional enclosure
  • Pluggable terminals for all connections
The embedded strain gauge signal conditioner board is a low cost and embedded solution to your strain measurement needs. This miniaturized board accepts or completes a single Wheatstone bridge arranged in quarter, half, or full bridge mode it can also accept a standard load cell. Gain and offset adjustment can be controlled manually or programmably via standard SPI protocol. Easily interface with your microprocessor or ADC for reliable and low cost measurement of strain signals. Additionally, this board can be interfaced directly with any analog LabVIEW DAQ or other data acquisition system.

Flexible on-board bridge completion circuit (completion resistors sold separately):
Bridge resistors can be through hole or surface mount
Through hole resistors can be soldered in place or plugged into provided socket
Surface mount option allows placement of 0805 package resistors
Precision gain (.1% tolerance)
Manual or programmable gain: 110, 220, 550, 1100, 2200, 5500, 11000
Manual or programmable calibration offset
Use a simple potentiometer to adjust for offset errors
Or connect to SPI to allow microprocessor to adjust offset
