Charge Module GL7-CHA

GL7-CHA This is the input module for the sensors based on the piezoelectric elements capable of measuring a variety phenomena as acceleration, pressure, force.
It is able to connect the sensor directly and also able to measure the voltage.
It supports the TEDS in the sensor and allows to make setup easily.
It supports various filters capable to have high-precision measurement.

Added menu selection for microphones

Added a menu for sound input by piezo-based microphones on the Charge/Acceleration Module (GL7-CHA).

Sound or vibration analysis can be performed by third party software using recorded sound data.

High-precision measurement using various filters

High-precision signal is able to be captured by the high-pass, low-pass, and anti-aliasing filter.

Supports a variety piezoelectric type sensors

This module supports a variety type of piezoelectric sensors including an acceleration sensor, and supports direct connection of the sensor.

Type of sensor Unit of sensitivity (example)
Piezoelectric type sensors Charge output type Acceleration sensor pC/(m/s2)ApC/(9.8m/s2)ApC/gApC/G
Pressure sensor pC/barApC/NApC/Pa
Force/Load sensor pC/lbApC/kN
Voltage output (IEPE) type Acceleration sensor mV/(m/s2)AmV/(9.8m/s2)AmV/gAmV/G
Pressure sensor mV/psiAmV/kPaAmV/PaAmV/bar
Force/Load sensor mV/lbAmV/lbfAmV/NAmV/kN

The charge output type and voltage output (IEPE) type are available in the piezoelectric type sensor for measuring a wide variety phenomena. Variety type of sensors are able to use by setting the sensitivity and the unit of measurement.
