Breaking from conventional IEPE power, the LPA100T operates from low voltage (3-5 volts) consuming less than 300 uWatts. In addition, new circuitry minimizes settling time to less than ten milliseconds while still preserving 0.3 Hz low end frequency (traditional IEPE sensors require up to ten seconds).
The advantage of a fast settling time when using multiplexed applications is that the entire sensor field can be scanned faster. Since each data point is refreshedmore frequently, machinery health can be monitored in real-time. This results in improved asset protection and reliability. The LPA100 is an ideal solution for wireless, battery-operated or energy harvesting applications due to its low power consumption. A built-in electronic temperature sensor provides additional machinery health data from the mounting location.
The LPA100T is also available certified for use in hazardous areas (Class I, Div 2/Zone 2).
