About Vibrating Wire Interfaces
These interfaces allow our dataloggers to read vibrating wire sensors. Vibrating wire (or vibrating strip) transducers are commonly used to measure strain, load, pressure, and water level. These sensors output a frequency signal generated by a vibrating filament that can be read on an analog channel.
Because frequencies rather than voltage levels are measured, these transducers are often better suited than 4- or 6-wire resistive bridge transducers to applications in electrically noisy environments or those requiring long lead lengths. Vibrating wire transducers also have a reputation for long-term stability.
