The programmable 4636 dual-channel Frequency to Voltage Converter
provides signal conditioning for frequency output transducers.
These include magnetic pickups and other logic or pulse type
signals whose output frequencies range between DC and 10 kHz.
The 4636 contains input isolation to prevent ground loop problems,
input sensitivity selection to optimize for zero crossing or
pulse type signals, direction sensing (quadrature or level)
for configuring the output for either forward or reverse speeds,
three step low pass output filtering, two step excitation voltage,
and four calibration frequencies. Front-panel LEDs keep the
user informed of signal presence and direction on each channel,
and they warn of programming errors or signal overload. Onboard
configuration selections are clearly labeled, making in-field
modifications quick and convenient.
To assure long life, the 4636 is manufactured with the finest
quality ceramic components for maximum stability over a wide
temperature range. The rugged aluminum front panel includes
¼ twist lock downs for quick yet secure mounting in any
Model 4000 Signal Conditioning chassis.
