Measuring transducers have an important use in many places
Measuring transducers are indispensable where measured values must be transmitted for indication and evaluation over long distances or at different locations. Hence they find application especially in automation, regulation and control engineering. Measuring transducers are used here for the conversion and galvanic isolation of varied measuring signals in heavy-current and weak-current engineering and process technology. They convert the input quantity into a proportional output signal with standardised values. A pulse or frequency output is also possible. At Müller + Ziegler we offer you a wide range of measuring transducers. From measuring transducers for network quantities through to models for process quantities, we offer all of the versions you require for your application.
Different types of measuring transducers
Measuring transducers are also often referred to as transmitters. However, depending on their mode of operation, they are also referred to as measuring transformers, measuring amplifiers or measuring converters. Measuring converters may also be referred to as measuring transformers if they exhibit the same physical quantity at the output as at the input. In addition, measuring transformers work without auxiliary power. It may also be a current transformer that converts alternating current into alternating current, for example. If it draws on auxiliary power, it is referred to as a measuring amplifier. The term measuring converter is used only for measuring transducers that convert the measuring signals into a different signal structure. The distinction here is mostly between analogue and digital signal structures. The distinguishing feature of our measuring transducers is their precise analogue or digital measurement. The accuracy class of our measuring transducers is 0,5. Thus you can trust the accuracy of the measured values of our models.
Our devices, which are configurable via software, are equipped with either a USB port or an Ethernet LAN port with TCP/IP and Modbus TCP protocol.
Measuring transducers from Müller + Ziegler – reliable and accurate
Due to their fully electronic design, measuring transducers have no mechanical moving parts that could be affected by external influences. As a result they are largely immune to disturbances and suitable for use in rough operating conditions. The output signal is non-sensitive to interference signals and external fields since it is an impressed direct current, a direct voltage or a combination of both. The output signal of the measuring transducer is therefore also non-sensitive to corruption due to signal lines of varying length. Varying internal resistances of evaluation instruments (such as between switchgear and meters, for example) are also mostly unavoidable. Within the load range, the accuracy of the measuring transducer remains uninfluenced by this. Another advantage of our measuring transducers is their slim design. With a housing width of just 22.5mm they can be used almost anywhere. Our company has more than 100 years’ experience as a manufacturer of innovative measuring equipment. During this period there have been numerous changes in the field of measurement engineering but our steadfast tradition and the quality of our products remain unchanged. We are continually further developing our products and strive to find an innovative solution that matches the specific requirements of each of our customers. As a result, you can trust the reliability and long service life of your new measuring transducers.
