IS2000 STRAIN BRIDGE MONITOR
The IS2000 Strain Bridge Monitor is a hand-held
electronic instrument designed to be used with geotechnical instrumentation based on
Wheatstone Bridge measurement concepts.
The monitor has a single
re-chargeable internal battery pack providing power for both transducer excitation and its
own measurement circuits. Input signals from transducers are amplified and displayed
on a front panel 4½ digit Liquid Crystal Display. Up to 12 individual transducers
may be connected and the monitor will operate in quarter, half or full bridge
Transducers are connected to the
Strain Bridge Monitor through custom designed interfaces.
These are a series of four interchangeable rear panels which are fitted to become
part of the monitor housing, allowing the user to customise the monitor for a particular
instrumentation installation. Two of these interfaces are designed for specific
applications while the remaining two are of a more general nature for maximum flexibility.
The readout is supplied with a
choice of any interface, operating manual, protective carry case and 240V battery charger
module. Additional interfaces are available and enquiries for custom interfaces are
