For use with the VibWire-101
Vibrating Wire Instrumentation
multiplexer unit is 32 x 2 way and 16 x 4 way relay expansion unit for
use with the VibWire-101
vibrating wire sensor interface unit. The Mux-16/32
is fully encapsulated device making it safe from the ingress of water,
sand and dust.
Vibrating Wire Sensor Application
output connects to the Vibrating wire sensors to the VibWire-101
interface unit. The Mux-16/32
can switch full 4 wire sensor signals, or when large channel count
solutions are required then 2 wire frequency or temperature signals.
interface is a SDI-12 network
product and will work with any suitable 3rd party data logger.
switches the channel and makes the sensor readings automatically.
Low Power Operations
only energises a relay during a switching operation and is de-activated
at any other time. This means power supply requirements are kept to an
absolute minimum. The systems are ideally suited for stand-alone
Channel Select Display
A channel select display shows the
sensor input in use only at the time of switching. The display is off
at all other times. This feature is useful to show that the MUX-16/32
is installed and operating correctly.

is installed like all other AquaLOG range of products using the plastic
quick release plastic mounting tabs onto the standard system base
plates. The unit is fast to fit and easy to replace.
enables the VibWire-101
interface to handle from 1 to 128 channels of vibrating wire sensor
inputs. See manual for details.
Menu System Control
unit is fully integrated into the menu system of the VibWire-101.
The User can select any channel within the Mux-16/32
and take sensor reading and this operation is available regardless to
how many MUX-16/32 units are
in use. It takes only a few seconds to switch between channels.
