MSC-1015 Multi Signal Calibrator – OBSOLETE | North Protection

MSC-1015 Multi Signal Calibrator – OBSOLETE


MSC-1015 is a battery operated instrument that is used to electronically simulate variety of outputs from various types of sensors.

MSC-1015 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 from 4 AA rechargeable, internally mounted 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 voltage (mV), single-ended charge (pC), differential charge (pC), current-sinking IEPE (ICP®), loop powered current source (mA), tachometer (TTL), flow (TTL), OSO® (Optical Speed Output) and BOV (Bias Output Voltage). Frequency range is 1Hz to 10kHz; RMS output voltage 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 are independent or connect to SCADA Systems.
