PPM Ltd has been appointed the exclusive UK Distributor for Group 3 Technology in New Zealand. These products allow a low cost point-to-point link for analog and digital information. A suite of software drivers for use with LabView, or other control software packages are also available, allowing users to drive and read back information with almost any type of transducer. This includes simple analog voltage and stepper motor drive. As the remote circuitry is linked with optical fiber, distances of up to 3km can easily be covered into remote environments.
Group 3 Technology also has a range of Tesla meters offering resolution of up to 1 in 600,000 and field strengths in excess of 3 Tesla. Using Group 3’s temperature compensation technology accuracy of +/- 0.01% is achieved with temperature co-efficient as low as +/-5ppm/degC. Group 3’s Hall Probes can be combined with the control products to provide closed loop control of electro magnets without the need for additional control equipment.
