DMS - Displacement Measurement Systems with Serial Communication

Standard units can be operated locally via keypad or remotely via RS232. They have a 152 x 102 x 57 mm (6 x 4 x 2.25 inch) electronics package with 2-line display. RC type DMS units can output distance and reflectance. Dualchannel units can display dual channel readings. Price includes RS232 cable, Philtec DMS Setup and Control Software, LabviewTM drivers, a sensor tip with 3 foot long fiberoptic cable and AC/DC power adaptor.

All units have full-featured capability for:

  • Amplifier Temperature Stabilization
  • Calibration Scaling & Storage
  • Data Averaging
  • 5,000 Samples/Sec Max. per RS232 port
  • Peak-to-Peak Amplitudes
  • Tared Readings
  • Total Runout, T.I.R.

D Model Digital Sensor options

Displacement Measurement Systems (DMS) are the best choice for absolute distance measurements, multiplexing and process control applications, with data rates up to 5,000 readings/second. They provide linearized distance output and on board calibration storage capacity for 25 calibrations. Three types are available, each equipped with temperature stabilized electronics:
