Turck's IMX12-SG strain gauge transducer is fast, compact and flexible to use
Fast Strain Gauge Transducer for Hazardous Area
Turck's IMX12-SG for force measurement applications in hazardous areas achieves response times below 10 ms and can be used as a repeater or signal converter
Turck has expanded its interface portfolio with a fast strain gauge transducer for force measurement applications in hazardous areas. The IMX12-SG has a repeater function and can be used for signal conversion when the resistance changes on strain gauge bridges. A unique selling point on the market – as well a response time of less than 10 ms, combined with a flexible output circuit configurable with DIP switches and galvanic isolation in a slimline 12.5 mm housing. With its slimline design, the IMX12-SG is ideal for applications with limited space available.
- Flexible use as repeater and signal converter
- High safety level thanks to galvanic isolation
- Easy configuration without tools
High safety level thanks to galvanic isolation
Turck's IMX12-SG provides galvanic isolation between the hazardous and safe areas. This eliminates interference or equalization currents that can result from stray voltages – a key safety advantage over Zener barrier solutions, which rely on a very well-maintained grounding concept.
Operation in Zone 2 hazardous area
As with all devices of the IMX12 series, operation in the Zone 2 hazardous area is permitted in a protective housing.
A wide supply voltage range of 10...30 VDC also enables use in applications with battery operation, such as temporary, mobile facilities. The operating temperature range of up to 70 °C allows use in the direct proximity of machines and motors.
