IO-Link strain gauge amplifier

The integration of IO-Link with strain gauge amplifiers for load cells offers various advantages in industrial applications. This combination of IO-Link and strain gauge amplifiers thus optimises data acquisition and data transmission in load cell applications, resulting in improved process control and efficiency.

The IO-Link strain gauge amplifier EPG-IO has a 1-channel IO-Link interface in a robust plastic housing and is suitable for a wide range of industrial applications. It has a connection for a strain gauge full bridge (strain gauge). The sensor signal from the application is converted into a standardised IO-Link signal by the measuring amplifier. The measuring transducer applies a measuring current to the strain gauge bridge using its power supply. The output signal of the bridge changes in proportion to the change in force and is passed on by the IO-Link interface as a digital signal.
