API introduces APD 8000 signal conditioner

July 1, 2016 - API introduced the APD 8000 signal conditioner. The unit accepts a thermocouple, RTD, thermistor, DC, or potentiometer input, and converts it to an optically isolated DC voltage or current output. It can be set up and calibrated using onboard switches and pushbuttons without the need for a computer or special programmer.

The APD 8000 is ideal for applications where one device needs to cover any number of I/O types. Microprocessor-based linearization and a 18-bit analog output offer ±0.1% accuracy. Features include an output test function and a variable-brightness Loop-Tracker LED to indicate the input signal level. Also standard are sink/source output capability, 1200 VRMS full optical isolation, fast shipping and a lifetime warranty. Versions are available for temperature, thermocouple, RTD, thermistor, or DC input only.
