Global Signal Conditioning Modules Market 2017-2021
About Signal Conditioning Modules
Signal conditioning modules are devices that condition the signal for transmission between a field device and an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) in a data acquisition system. The signal conditioning module isolates, attenuates, and amplifies the signal in order to meet the data acquisition system's specifications. As these modules are used with almost all field devices, the closely related markets for signal conditioning modules include the data acquisition systems market and the ADCs market.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global signal conditioning modules market to grow at a CAGR of 5.21% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global signal conditioning modules market for 2017-2021. The report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Signal Conditioning Modules Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global signal conditioning modules market: AMETEK, Analog Devices, National Instruments, Rockwell Automation, and Yokogawa Electric.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Linear Technology, TE Connectivity, Acromag, Weidmüller Interface, Phoenix Contact, Dwyer Instruments, and Keysight Technologies.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is emergence of Industry 4.0. Industry 4.0 is concept originated in Germany, and its main focus is on the automation of factories and implementation IoT in the industries. Industry 4.0 enables industrial advances by converging industrial systems with the power of advanced computing and analytics, low-cost sensing, and new levels of connectivity enabled by the Internet.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is capability of eliminating ground loops leads to reduction in signal fluctuations. Ground loops pose a serious threat in transferring signals from the field to the control system as they reduce the quality of the signal. Ground loops cause a problem by adding or subtracting voltage or current from the process signal. This results in differentiation problems between wanted and unwanted signals by the receiving devices. Unwanted ground loops lead to inaccuracies in sensors' reading by negatively affecting the signals.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is time-intensive installation and configuration. The main challenge faced by signal conditioning modules is their time-intensive configuration. Generally, signal conditioning modules are classified into front-end signal conditioning modules and built-in signal conditioning modules. Front-end signal conditioning modules provide greater flexibility than built-in signal conditioning modules. A data acquisition system with front-end signal conditioning module requires a data acquisition system (DAQ) device to be plugged into the PC and chassis installed with measurement specific modules, cabled to a DAQ device.
