The handheld device Type 5811A00 is not only a portable, battery-powered charge amplifier for quasi-static and dynamic signals, but also a powerful data acquisition system that stores the digitized measurement values directly on the device allowing to export the data to a host computer via its USB interface. The integrated insulation tester functionality makes it possible to test the insulation of piezoelectric measuring chains (sensors and cables) and to store the results on the device for documentation purposes.
The device is configured and operated via an intuitive user interface on a touchscreen display which is supplemented by side buttons to allow operation with gloves of the main controls. The graphical user interface not only provides a simple and intuitive way to configure the device but also displays various measurement values (e.g. live value, peak value, root mean square value) as well as the measurement curve in a y/t graph. An evaluation view allows to check if the measured process signal is within user defined limits. The insulation tester not only indicates the measured insulation value but also visualizes the result in a gauge graph with user defined limits for easy determination of good and bad results.
Furthermore, the handheld device can store presets of user generated measurement configurations. This not only allows to quickly change between repeatedly executed tasks, but it also ensures that these tasks are executed with identical settings, resulting in consistent data.
