CARLSON MA7 READOUT

DESCRIPTION

The Carlson MA7 Readout is the intended readout for all Carlson Instruments.

Carlson Instruments are elastic wire strain meters containing two coils of highly elastic steel wire, one of which increases in length and electrical resistance when a strain occurs while the other decreases. The ratio of the two resistances is independent of temperature (except for thermal expansion) and therefore the change in resistance ratio is a measure of strain. The total resistance is independent of strain since one coil increases the same amount as the other decreases due to the change in length of the meter. Therefore, the total resistance is a measure of temperature.

APPLICATIONS

Auto selection of gauge type.


Simple one button operation.


Auto error detection.


3 and 4 wire compatible.


Allows use of economical 3 wire cable.


Sealed case.


Rechargeable batteries.


Field rugged and reliable.


Auto off to conserve battery power.

QUICK SPECS

Reads all Carlson Instruments.


Displays data in Degrees (F and C), Resistance in Ohms, Resistance Ratio.


Durable, compact design for excellent portability and field use.


Large graphics display with a convenient backlight.


Field-replaceable "AA" alkaline batteries eliminate the need for a large, bulky 12V battery and charger.


Stores up to 254 instrument locations per route, each with a text label, calibration constants, previous data, and up to 11,400 time/date stamped data points.


Data transfer to a host computer via USB in a compatible file format for Microsoft Excel® and other spreadsheets. User friendly host software for Microsoft Windows® included.

BENEFITS

Increase Productivity


High Accuracy


High Reliability


Upgradeable
