Transducers with the special options are powered by 24 v DC. Because Dover’s standard strain-gauge tension transducers provide a 250mVDC output signal that is not directly usable by most customers a separate electronics package—usually a transducer interface circuit card—is required to condition the transducer pair’s output to make it usable for measurement and control applications. However with the development of the 10 v output option the necessity for customers to purchase and install an extra transducer interface/amplifier card when purchasing a pair of tension transducers has been eliminated.
