The S2A LVDT signal conditioner offers LVDT/RVDT with a wide range of LVDTs, RVDTs, and inductive half-bridge sensors including 3-wire GE LVRTs and GE gas turbine buck-boost style LVDTs.
The signal conditioning module has cyber security tamper prevention and notification features that no other manufacturers have even considered, providing confidence that the unit has not been compromised.
The S2A also has colour coded plug-in connections and self-diagnostics along with push button calibration, RS-485 digital communications, hot swap capability and enhanced Fault Diagnostics
“We are extremely excited about the release of the S2A,” said Harold Schaevitz, President and CEO of Alliance Sensors Group. “The marketplace has asked Alliance Sensors for several enhanced features, and our engineering staff has exceeded expectations and delivered a superior product for the Power Gen market compared to other manufacturer’s products.
The S2A has fault or failure detection for high reliability applications like nuclear power plant steam turbine controls and can detect at least eleven (11) fault conditions. The S2A offers push button calibration, reducing set up time by a factor of 10 as the internal microprocessor automatically sets up the LVDT signal conditioner. The operator simply presses the front panel Zero button and Full Scale buttons. The S2A is then fully calibrated with the LVDT position sensor.
The S2A also can be setup remotely using a computer via its RS-485 port connected. For installations involving multiple position sensors, the S2As can be master /slaved to prevent cross talk between sensor signals.
