Can ADInstruments’ bridge amps be used with 3rd party transducers which require different excitation?

Newer bridge amplifiers (FE***) can supply a DC excitation voltage of up to 20V.This can enable 3rd party transducers, Grass for example, to be used with our amplifiers.The amount of excitation needed can be altered using a specific resistor.This resistor is generally placed between pin #5 and #8 on the relevant interface cable.

Further information and guidance on this can be seen on pages 30-32 of the “Front End Owners Guide” 


If the skill-set allows, end users can manufacture interface cables themselves or they can contact their local ADInstruments representative for further guidance and support.
