The KEP AMP-2 is a two channel amplifier for use with magnetic pickups. It amplifies and squares the low level signals from a magnetic pickup to drive any ratemeter, totalizer or controller. The unit operates from 8.5 to 30 VDC. It has a 10K pullup resistor attached to the open collector output and sinks a minimum of 20 mA to less than 1 V from a maximum of 30 VDC. It is available in OEM (PC board only), NEMA4X enclosure or in a rugged explosion proof housing with screw terminals for easy installation. Operating temperature is -40° to 65°C.
Note: The low voltage line from the magnetic pickup to the AMP-2 should be less than 10 ft. in length, shielded and isolated from relays, solenoids or other sources of electrical noise (let the output line make the long run). If the input is too sensitive, lower the 10K input impedance by adding a 1K ohm resistor across TB1, pins 1 and 2, 4 and 5 to increase noise immunity.
