Addressable Vibrating Wire Interface

  • Photo of the Model 4150 Addressable Strain Gage, shown on soil nail.

    Model 8020-30

    The Model 8020-30 Addressable Interface is designed to “daisy-chain” vibrating wire sensors on a single 4-conductor cable, using the Modbus® RTU protocol over an RS-485 connection. The 8020-30 is useful for reducing cable runs in multipoint systems, incremental extensometers, and for applications where many sensor cables might compromise a grout or cement bond, e.g. on a soil nail. The system comprises a trunk cable with splitters containing the circuitry to excite, read and ID each sensor. Readout is achieved with the FPC-2 Field PC, 8600 Series Dataloggers or PC application.
