Knick USA (www.knickusa.com), an ISO9001:2008 certified global designer and manufacturer of analog signal conversion technologies for rail, power grid, industrial, marine, motors and drives, automotive and other testing environments, has announced the North American debut of its BasicLine, a family of low-cost signal amplifiers and isolators.
The Knick USA BasicLine offers system integrators, control panel builders, automation and process control engineers with a unique array of standard features found mostly only with higher end signal isolation devices, including: high-integrity measurement signal transmission; adjustable range offset; accuracies as high as 0.2% to 0.3% FS, (depending upon selected model); and 480 pre-calibrated switchable ranges without need for readjustment – all at a low, OEM-friendly price point. Another unique feature of BasicLine is its actual working voltage specifications, making the Series true 3-way isolators.
This presents a real performance advantage over other lower cost industry signal conversion devices, which are typically 2-way or non-isolated. This 3-port isolation further protects the Series against measurement errors and damage, whilst creating an unmatched price-to-performance ratio.
The Series also offers universal DC voltage and current measurements, with individually adjustable voltage ranges of 20 mV to 200 V, and choice of either 24V DC or 100-230V AC power supply. Current values of
