VREF, reference excitation voltage

VREF, excitation voltage and reference voltage refer to the same concept. This is the voltage the DA100C series amplifier provides for connected transducers that need to be powered. The excitation voltage level (peak-to-peak, i.e. the absolute difference between the value for VREF- and VREF+) will influence the readings obtained from the transducer. Therefore, this voltage must be known for the purposes of calibration. The Reference Calibrator for DA100C (REFCAL) can be used. The REFCAL plugs into the DA100C and directs the reference voltage setting to the DA100C output. The REFCAL makes it very easy to adjust the reference voltage of the DA100C to suit your transducer. Alternatively, a voltmeter can be used.
