Rotating telemetry for wheels and rotors


CT16-Rotate telemetry system for rotating applications

16-channel telemetry system for rotating applications – including signal conditioning for STG, TH-K, PT100, ICP, POT or high-level inputs

The CT16-Rotate is a 16-channel telemetry system for rotating applications with integrated signal conditioning for sensor signals, wireless digital transmission and analog reproduction.

In the encoder/transmitter unit the sensor signals are conditioned, filtered (anti-aliasing) and digitized (12-bit). Simultaneous sampling is provided for all channels. Finally the PCM encoded data is transmitted via radio frequencies to the receiver.

Various configurations of different sensor modules are available incl. signal conditioning for strain gages (STG), thermocouples type K (TH-K), thermo sensors PT100, ICP sensors, potentiometer sensors (POT) and also voltage inputs (±5 or ±10 V). Mixed configuration is possible.

The stationary receiver provides 16 x +/-10V analog outputs via Sub-D male socket (option: digital PC interface).

The analog signal bandwidth is 0-375 Hz (320kbit) and up to 0-1500Hz (1280kbit) for 16 channels. The measurement accuracy is ±0.25 % (without sensor). The CT16-Rotate is specified for operational temperatures from -20° C to +70° C. The maximum distance between transmitter and receiving antenna is approx. 10-20 m (30-60 feet) – depending on the application!
