IHH500 FAQ
What sensors can be used with the IHH500?
  • The IHH500 can accept mV/V sensors up to +/-500mV/V.
  • The IHH500 can also accept amplified sensors with a range of +/-12VDC and a current range of up to 30mA.
Is the IHH500 able to stream data to a pc?
  • Yes, it can do so via USB or ASCII output.
  • SENSIT Test and Measurement software is required.
Do I need any special equipment to connect my amplified sensor to the IHH500, or connect the IHH500 to the computer?
  • There is no need for special equipment to connect an amplified sensor to the IHH500.
  • The IHH500 comes with a USB cable which simply plugs into a computer USB port.
How long can I record data in the data logging mode?
  • The IHH500 can store up to about 21,000 samples.
  • The length of time, in seconds, is equal to 21,000 divided by the selected sampling rate.
  • The IHH500 offers a half speed mode during data logging which can reduce the sampling rate to 2.5sps when 5sps is selected.
Can I store more than one data logging file?
  • The IHH500 can store one data logging file at a time.
  • The data logging information is removed when power is turned off to the IHH500.
What is the maximum sampling rate for the IHH500?
  • The IHH500 can achieve up to 4800sps.
  • The lower the sampling rate the higher the resolution.
  • You can use our online resolution calculator here to estimate the resulted resolution.
Does the IHH500 have an Analog Output?
  • The IHH500 is equipped with a +/- 5VDC analog output, which can be configured for 0-5VDC or +/-5VDC.
  • The IHH500 is also equipped with an Analog Current output, which can be configured for 0-20mA, 4-20mA, 0-25mA, or 5-25mA.
Does the IHH500 come with Alarms?
  • The IHH500 is equipped with two solid state relays.
  • The Alarms can be configured to be latched or non-latched.
Regarding System Calibration
During a system calibration, here a FUTEK, the Sensor Config in the IHH500, under Sensor Profile, is set according to the type of output that is appropriate for the sensor. For example, an mV/V sensor would be set for Full Bridge, and a Voltage Output sensor would be set for Voltage output.

Anytime the sensor config is changed to another type of configuration, even from Voltage Output to Voltage and Pulse, the profile sensitivity must be re-entered, or re-confirmed. The sensitivity is the output of the sensor, and may be in both a + and – direction.

Anytime the sensor config is changed to another type of configuration, even from Voltage Output to Voltage and Pulse, the profile sensitivity must be re-entered, or re-confirmed. The sensitivity is the output of the sensor, and may be in both a + and – direction.
Regarding setup with Bi-Directional Sensor
For a bi-directional sensor, such as a sensor that has an output for Tension and Compression, the IHH500 may have a profile that has been setup for one direction, such as tension. If the sensor is used with this IHH500 profile in the non-calibrated direction, such as compression, the IHH500 will use the existing profile calibration information to linearize the output in the opposite direction.
