Expansion plug for operation of IEPE/ICP sensors
This connector is used to extend imc measurement amplifiers with DSUB-15 connection technology with an IEPE conditioning which allows the direct connection of 2 current-fed IEPE/ICP sensors, e.g. accelerometers of the type ICP™-DeltaTron®- or PiezoTron® etc. The ICP conditioning comprises 4 mA current supply and AC coupling and is channel-individually isolated. This ensures good ground loop suppression and allows operation of transducers that are either grounded or mounted with isolation towards CHASSIS ground. The expansion plug can be operated in conjunction with isolated and non-isolated voltage and bridge amplifier modules.It has a TEDS interface for reading out information from the sensor, as long as it supports TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheets).
