Model 83162 Dual-Channel Signal Conditioning Card

The model 83162 is a precision, two-channel signal conditioning card for use with all Jewell miniature tilt sensors. Powerful electronics generate balanced AC sensor excitation for up to two tilt channels (X and Y), then amplify, rectify and filter sensor response to produce a high-level DC output signal. Output is ±8 VDC single-ended (±16 VDC differential).

Units conveniently come with two switchable gain and filter settings (high/low; on/off) for added signal processing flexibility. The 83162 also includes an amplifier for one LM35 temperature sensor and will drive tilt and temperature signals over 1000m cable lengths. All units include calibration when ordered with Jewell Instruments miniature tilt sensors. Use the model 83162 for peak performance from our 755, 756, or ceramic tilt sensor packages.
