The Instrumentation Amplifier can be used to connect a wide variety of measurement equipment to a Vernier interface and electronically collect, store, and analyze the data.
The Instrumentation Amplifier monitors voltages from 20 mV to 1 V (DC or AC). It has several switch settings to allow you to select the best gain and includes auto-ID functionality for each of the six ranges. Input bandwidth of 10 kHz allows the capture of higher frequency signals. It is typically used to amplify the chart recorder or analog output of any instrument, such as a third-party gas chromatograph.
Gain settings: 150, 75, 7.5, 15, 3, and 1.5±5%
Power: 2.5 mA @ 5 VDC
Frequency Response: 0-10 kHz (f3dB)
Impedance: 1 MΩ to ground
Range settings: 0-20 mV, 0-200 mV, 0-1 V, ±20 mV, ±200 mV, ±1 V
