The KEP AMP-1 signal conditioner amplifies the low level signals from a magnetic pickup or flow transmitter by a factor of more than a hundred times to drive any ratemeter, counter or controller. The unit uses only 30 mA and operates from 11 to 26 VDC. It has a 2.7K pullup resistor attached to the open collector output and sinks a minimum of 100 mA to less than 1 V from a maximum of 26 VDC. It is mounted in a rugged 2" x 3" metal housing with screw terminals for easy installation. Operating temperature is 32 to 140°F (0 to 60°C).
Note: The low voltage line from the magnetic pickup to the AMP-1 should be less than 10 ft. in length, shielded and isolated from relays, solenoids or other sources of electrical noise (let the output line make the long run). If the input is too sensitive, lower the 1.1K input impedance by adding a 220 to 1K ohm resistor across TB1, pins 1 and 2, to increase noise immunity.
A special version, the AMP1-10k, is available with 10 kΩ impedance for use with turbine and paddle wheel flowmeters.
