The i100 hand held simulator generates precise mV/V signals to help develop, “troubleshoot,” and calibrate strain gage signal conditioners, instruments, signal processors, and data loggers. Accuracy is ± 0.03%, temperature effects are 6 ppm/F, and zero balance is 0.0004 mV/V. Resistance of the i100 simulator is equivalent to a 350-ohm bridge. The i100 has 8 switch selectable output steps. Also, a vernier knob is provided to allow the user to continuously adjust the output from –2 to + 2 mV/V. A convenient switch provides true reverse polarity. Connection to the i100 is made through either a PT style connector or 4 color-coded spring-loaded test clips. All critical internal contacts are gold plated. The i100 is compatible with AC carrier or DC strain gage signal conditioner electronics.
