API Response Time

• DC Voltage Input: 0-5 mV to 0-1200 mV
• DC Output: 0-1 V, 0-5 V, 0-10 V, +/- 5 V, +/- 10 V, 4-20 mA, etc.
• Strain Gauge Bridge Excitation: 1 to 10 VDC
• Field-Configurable by User

The API 4058 G accepts a strain gauge, bridge, load cell, or a summed input from up to four sensors, and provides 

a proportional, non-isolated DC voltage or current output. It includes filtering and processing to allow effective use of lowlevel transducers in the noisy environments found in industrial applications.

The built-in 115 mA bridge excitation power supply generates a stable source of excitation voltage to drive from one to four 350 Ω (or greater) bridge type sensors such as load cells, pressure transducers and strain gauges The API 4058 G amplifies and converts the resulting millivolt signal into the selected output.

Input, output, excitation, and zero offset are field configurable, via external rotary and slide switches. Common ranges are on the module label. An offset switch is standard for applications requiring cancellation of sensor offsets or non-zero deadweights (taring). Zero and span potentiometers allow calibration of the output.

Field Rangeable; Via external rotary & slide switches
Minimum range: 0 to 5 mV
Maximum range: 0 to 1200 mV
Minimum sensitivity: 0.5 mV/V
Maximum sensitivity: 120 mV/V
Millivolt output range is determined by the sensitivity of the sensor (mV/V) and the excitation voltage applied
