Charge Amplifiers

CEC Vibration Products produce the following range of charge amplifiers:

1-328 Differential Charge Amplifier

1-328 Differential Charge AmplifierThe CEC model 1-328-0XXX is a remote Charge Converter designed for use with differential piezoelectric transducers.

This robust device converts a high impedance charge input to a low impedance AC mV output. Both an acceleration output and a proportional velocity signal are provided. The 1-328 output is proportional to the pC charge input at a constant gain throughout the specified operating range. The 1-328 features a field selectable output gain of x2 or x10 and a frequency response of 5Hz1 to 10 kHz. The 1-328 is powered by a 24 Vdc compliance voltage.

1-320 Remote Charge Amplifier

1-320 Remote Charge AmplifierThe Type 1-320 Remote Charge Converter (RCC) is designed for use with single-ended piezoelectric transducers that do not have internal electronics.

The 1-320 is available with fixed gains of 1.0 mV/pC or 10.0 mV/pC and are compatible with most vibration instrumentation systems like the CEC 8000 C-CATS. The 1-320 converts a high impedance charge input signal to a low impedance proportional voltage. This RCC utilizes a standard 2-wire constant current source within a range of 4 to 20 mA and a compliance voltage of 20 to 36 VDC. These low noise devices offer a wide frequency response of 2 to 45 kHz.

1-310 Charge Amplifier Series

1-310 Charge AmplifierThe 1-310 series charge amplifiers are used with piezo-electric accelerometers that do not have internal electronics.

They have a gain of one and are compatible with most instrumentation systems. Charge amplifiers are available for single ended or differential accelerometers. Outputs include both acceleration and velocity.
