Cables and Connectivity

A standard strain gage-based system typically consists of a force transducer (force plate), amplifier, computer or data acquisition system, mounting hardware and interconnecting cables. A shielded cable is required to connect the transducer to the signal conditioner (amplifier). This cable uses twisted pair conductors for signal and bridge excitation to provide the highest possible noise immunity. The cable has a standard length of 30 feet. AMTI supplies a variety of connectors for this cable to accommodate specific configurations and routinely makes custom cables to meet customer requirements.

CONNECTOR OPTIONS

AMTI offers a variety of connectors to suit lab specifications. Based on the specific equipment and configuration you desire, you can leave it to the product specialists at AMTI to recommend the appropriate cable connector for your needs.
