Meggitt Sensing Systems announced the Endevco model 4830A, a hand-held, lightweight battery-operated electronic instrument designed to simulate a variety of transducer outputs. The simulator offers a convenient and portable means of verifying instrumentation settings and cable integrity in aerospace and automotive test cells, as well as other in-laboratory and field testing environments.
Available output signals from the model 4830A include single-ended and differential charge (pC), single-ended voltage (mV) and current-sinking ISOTRON (IEPE). Simulated outputs are available in either English or Metric units over an available frequency range of 1 Hz to 10 KHz, with an adjustable output amplitude of up to 10,000 pC or mV pk, and with overall noise of less than 2 mV or 2 pC rms.
The model 4830A uses a menu-driven 80-character LCD display to establish appropriate settings. The key panel contains four sealed switches (per IP65) marked with arrows for cursor control. In addition to the manual on/off switch, the unit can be set for automatic power shutdown, and the last setup is automatically stored within its non-volatile memory. Units are powered by internally mounted batteries, which are fully rechargeable from a regulated 9 VDC power source. The power supply and a carrying case are included.
