|A Full-Featured Signal Conditioner||
IRIS-SC is a versatile dual-channel signal conditioner. Serial ASCII data are output as either RS-232 or RS-422(485) signals for recording by an external terminal or computer. Important features are firmware-controlled and user-selectable. These include output data rates and formats, signal averaging autozero (nulling), and internal data storage (logging). Several output data formats are provided, all of which include X tilt, Y tilt, Temperature, and Serial Number information.
|A Powerful Control Device||
The firmware on the standard IRIS board has 5 user-programmable thresholds. When a tilt measurement is taken, it is compared to each of these thresholds: +X tilt, -X tilt, +Y tilt, -Y tilt, and tilt in any direction. If the measurement exceeds one or more of the thresholds, the corresponding output pin(s) in the H3 connector, is set high (5V), as shown below. If the threshold is not exceeded, the output remains at 0 Volts. The reference angle for the threshold measurement is selected using the autozero command. Threshold checking may be turned off with a single firmware command when it is not needed
