Overview

The LLAC4 is a small peripheral that increases the number of low-level ac signals a datalogger can monitor. The LLAC4 is often used to measure up to four anemometers, and it is especially useful for wind profiling applications.

Technical Description

The LLAC4 enables four datalogger control ports to emulate pulse-counting channels by converting the low-level ac signals to logic levels read by the control ports.

Additional Compatibility Information

Data Logger Considerations

The LLAC4 works only with data loggers whose control ports can accept high frequency pulses. The CR23X has four control ports that can be used (5, 6, 7, and 8); the CR200X-series control ports are compatible but are limited to inputs of 1 kHz.

Sensors

The LLAC4 typically measures anemometers. Compatible anemometers include the Wind Monitors, 03002 Wind Sentry Set, and 03101 Wind Sentry Anemometer. (The 014A Anemometer and 034B Windset are not compatible.) The LLAC4 can also measure other sensors that output pulse counting signals.

  1. No. But using a LLAC4 will convert the ac signal for up to four 03101-L sensors (and other ac output anemometers) to individual 0 to 5 Vdc TTL level square wave outputs. For more information, see the LLAC4 specification information
