Interface for force measurement applications in Ex areas

Turck’s fast strain gauge transducer IMX12-SG is designed for force measurement applications in hazardous areas. It achieves response times below 10 ms and you can use it as a repeater or signal converter. With its slimline design, this interface is ideal for applications with limited space available.

Benefit from flexible use

Turck has expanded its interface portfolio with a strain gauge transducer IMX12-SG. You can take advantage of this interface in force measurement applications in hazardous areas. It  is fast, compact and flexible to use.

The IMX12-SG has a repeater function and you can also use it for signal conversion when the resistance changes on strain gauge bridges.

It features response time of less than 10 ms, combined with a flexible output circuit configurable with DIP switches and galvanic isolation in a slimline 12.5 mm housing. The slimline design makes it ideal for applications with limited space available.

Ensure the highest safety with the IMX12-SG interface

Turck's IMX12-SG interface for Ex environments

Turck’s IMX12-SG interface provides galvanic isolation between the hazardous and safe areas.

Consequently, there are no equalization or interference currents resulting from stray voltages. This is a key safety advantage over Zener barriers intrinsic safety solutions, which rely on a very well-maintained grounding concept.

Use the IMX12-SG interface for operation in Zone 2

As is the case with all devices of the IMX12 series, operation in the Zone 2 hazardous area is permitted for the IMX12-SG in its protective housing.

You can use this interface in applications with battery operation, e.g. in temporary, mobile facilities, due to its wide supply voltage range of 10–30 VDC. Also use in the direct proximity of machines and motors doesn’t pose a problem, as the IMX12-SG features operating temperature range of up to 70 °C.

Easily configure IMX12-SG interface
