Voltage Conditioner Zero-Span Calculator

This calculator gives you information on the zero and span adjustability of transducers with the voltage conditioner electrical output feature. To use this calculator:

  1. Determine which OUTPUT you require according to columns A, B, and C.
  2. Complete the INPUT column variables corresponding to the output you require and press the Calculate button for the column of interest.
  3. Note: "unit displacement" can be inches, mm, °, or other units of displacement.

DEMONSTRATION OF OUTPUT FLEXIBILITY

For the variables shown in column A above, below are examples of the voltage conditioner's output flexibility.

The voltage span can be varied from minimum to maximum or anywhere in between and is user-settable.

single-ended, maximum span

0 to 0.889 VDC

single-ended, minimum span

0 to 0.356 VDC

differential, maximum span

-0.444 to 0.444 VDC

differential, minimum span

-0.178 to 0.178 VDC

single-ended, zero control at 100% of range

-0.889 to 0 VDC
