Signal Conditioning

Signal conditioning is the process of manipulating and preparing an input signal to enhance its quality, accuracy, or compatibility with the next stage of processing or measurement. It involves various techniques and devices to ensure that the signal is in the appropriate form for further analysis, data acquisition, or control.

Signal conditioners are electronic devices designed to perform signal conditioning tasks. They can be standalone units or integrated into larger systems such as a data acquisition system or control devices. Signal conditioners are commonly used in industrial measurement environments, scientific research, and other applications where accurate and reliable signal processing is required.

The input signal to a signal conditioner can come from various sources, such as sensors, transducers, or other measuring devices. The input signal may be in the form of an electrical signal (voltage or current) or other physical measurements, such as temperature, pressure, or strain.
