I-87089W-G 1-channel vibrating wire input module



The vibrating wire sensor has a wire which is initially plucked by a series of electrical magnetic forces from a coil. The conductive wire after plucking is vibrating in a magnetic field. The wire will disturb the field, and then the coil can pick up the induced voltage change. The signal is amplified and detected by a VW readout device, or called VW reader. After plucking, there is no other force acting on this wire. When the transient response dies out, the reader can read a stable resonant frequency. The resonant frequency is function of the tension of this wire.
