MSS-1010 Multi-Sensor Simulator – OBSOLETE

Application note

MSS – 1010  is a battery operated instrument that is used to electronically simulate variety of outputs from various types of accelerometers.

MSS-1010 uses a menu-driven 4×16 character LCD display to establish appropriate settings.

The key panel contains five sealed switches marked with arrows, E (Enter), Back and ON/OFF.

Power is supplied by 4AA internally mounted rechargeable Ni-MH batteries, which can be recharged with a regulated 9Vdc source.

Connection to PC is established over the front mounted LEMO connector. PC mode will be automatically started after inserting proper cable into device. Output  signal  is  user  selectable  from: single-ended  napon  (mV),  single-ended ®charge (pC), differental charge (pC), current-sinking IEPE (ICP), tachometer (TTL), ®flow (TTL), OSO  (Optical Speed Output) and BOV (Bias Output Voltage).

Frequency range is 1Hz to 1kHz; output voltage RMS is from 10mV to 10V or 10pC to 10.000pC.

Outputs can be provided in acceleration, velocity, displacement, voltage or charge.

Application note

Suitable for inspecting measurement lines according to ISO 10816 standards. Device is especially designed for Condition

Monitoring  Systems  (CMS)  and/or  Vibration  Monitoring Systems (VMS) that connect to SCADA Systems.
