Environmental control is critical to a variety of industrial, commercial, and residential applications. Temperature, humidity, pressure, and other conditions are monitored and controlled using a variety of sensing instruments. Depending on the application, instrumentation sensitivity varies. Residential HVAC systems, for example, require moderately accurate temperature control, whereas process equipment for injection molded plastics require more precise temperature and humidity control to ensure optimal product quality.
For particularly sensitive applications, instrumentation amplifiers are used to reduce electronic noise and amplify desired readings to ensure the utmost accuracy. Instrumentation amplifiers work by strengthening the output signal from sensor transducers. Since transducer signals tend to be low-level, amplification is necessary, and instrumentation amplifiers provide low-level amplification with high impedance to provide amplified signals where you need them.
An instrumentation amplifier is a differential amplifier that uses input resistors instead of input impedance matching to eliminate noise. With an instrumentation amplifier, users can ensure precise amplification of low-level signals with significant noise reduction, for exceptional accuracy ideal for use in sensitive measuring and testing applications. Instrumentation amplifiers provide energy-efficient low-level amplification for applications that require precise closed-loop gain and low noise.
Instrumentation amplifiers eliminate noise and interference while enhancing low-level signals. To provide optimal signal output, instrumentation amplifiers typically include the following features:
The extreme precision and noise reduction of instrumentation amplifiers make them the perfect option for a wide range of sensitive applications. Some industries and applications that benefit from instrumentation amplifiers include:
