The Measurable difference.

Modular Smart Interfaces (MSI)

Modular smart interfaces expand the functionalty of our amplifiers

MSIs are add-ons for our TRION(3)-18xx-MULTI modules and the TRION-x-dLV-CB16-D9 sensor connection box to expand their measurement functionality.

TRION(3)-18xx-MULTI modules in combination with MSI adapters extend the measurement capability to Charge, LVDT or thermocouple input.

MSIs in combination with TRION-xxxx-dLV-32 and TRION-x-dLV-CB16-D9 sensor connection box extend the measurement modes to BRIDGE, IEPE®, CHARGE, LVDT, Thermocouple, Pt100 to Pt2000, and voltage up to 200V.

Key facts

  • Expand functionality of bridge and voltage inputs
  • Automatically detected
  • Easy channel setup in the right engineering units
  • Versions for voltage, thermocouple, RTD, IEPE® and charge sensors

Modular Smart Interfaces bring an expanded level of flexibility to your measurement system

Our new MSI2 series is the improved version of the previous MSI series and compatible with TRION-xdLV-CB16-D9.
The accuracy is approximately 3 times higher than at the previous version. A calibrated high precision cold junction compensation is included in the adapter. It comes with an integrated preamplifier that boosts the tiny thermocouple voltage up to a few volts. That’s why the V2 series can be directly placed next to the sensor. Use extension cables up to 50 m between the MSI and the TRION system instead of having long thermocouple lines with small signal level. That can greatly improve your signal quality in harsh electronic environment.
