These instruments are full featured strain gage conditioner/readouts; the Model 701 handles one and the Model 711 handles two transducers. Both provide fast, accurate data for each channel. What's more, 18 of the most useful processing functions and 26 real-time digital calculations are built in. Their use converts the Model 701/711 into powerful production and performance test analyzers with easily configured characteristics. A two line alphanumeric display publishes measured and computed data, units of measure and test status. Transducer calibration is automatic, requiring no manual adjustments.
