|The CS-100-1S offer
many features and performance capabilities to
suit a wide range of applications. The unit is
compatible with any voltage style strain gage,
process, DC voltage/current, AC voltage/current,
and Temperature, Displacement, or Pressure inputs.
|Optional plug in
output cards offer such features as 0-10 vdc output,
RS-232, RS485, Modbus, DeviceNet, and Profibus-DP.
These options can be used with software available
through CSI to provide live data stream, communications
capabilities, operation through PLC or other control
devices. Readout values and setpoint alarm values
can be controlled through the bus.
Additionally, the digital has a feature that allows
a remote computer to directly control the outputs
of the digital. With the RS232 or RS485 card installed,
the digital can be configured using a Windows
The digital has four setpoint outputs, implemented
on Plug-in option cards. The plug-in cards provide
dual FORM-C relays (5A), quad FORM-A (3A), or
either quad sinking or quad sourcing open collector
logic outputs. The setpoint alarms can be configured
to suit a variety of control and alarm requirements.
unit can be adapted to any mounting configuration.
Standard issue includes an enclosure suitable
for mounting on existing testing machines. The
package as a retrofit offers digital with enclosure,
pressure transducer or load cell, power cables,
and transducer cables.
Other types of transducers can be installed which
will allow for accurate display of displacement,
temperature, or pressure. This makes the CS-100-1S
a versatile option for any soils, concrete, prestress,
or manufacturing application.
The 5 digit LED display is a variable
intensity unit. Function keys on the front of
the display are clearly marked to eliminate operator
error. Function keys on the front of the indicator
are programmable to any of a variety of functions.
scaling and configuration parameters are password
protected to avoid accidental altering. Calibration
is burned to non-volatile memory and does not
require a battery backup system for storage. In
short, this eliminates any loss of internal programming
associated with internal battery failure.
Up to 16 points can be entered during calibration.
This feature allows for complete linearization
of any transducer. Linearization eliminates error
and improves the accuracy of the device. All CS-100-1S
digitals are auto ranging. This feature allows
for accuracy of the display from 1% to 100% of
the testing machine range.

ASTM recommends annual calibration.
Devices should be calibrated upon installation, or
when any major changes or repairs are made to the
loading system which may affect the integrity of the
testing machine accuracy. Please contact CSI for calibration
or service. Our dedicated staff will provide you with
quality calibration and service at affordable prices.
During period of warranty, to maintain warranty status,
CSI (or a CSI approved agent) must perform all calibration
and service to your CS-100-1S retrofit.
This device works well will any
concrete, soils, mechanical, or stressing application.
It is a great replacement for analog gauge machines,
or devices which do not allow for data transfer to
your PC. Should you ever loose calibration on the
device, the unit allows for easy entry of calibration
parameters to eliminate down time.
Contact CSI should you experience any difficulty.
We would be glad to offer assistance in any reconfiguration
or service which may be necessary to keep your retrofit
in top operating order.
