Please guys I need help. I am sorry if this is obvious, I am a beginner, and I don't have anyone I can ask around.
I'm trying to connect an LVDT/displacement transducer (Omega LD 320) to a controller (Omega CNiS16D). The LVDT has AC voltage output and the controller only has DC inputs. What do I need to use to convert the variable AC voltage to DC voltage that can be read by the controller? Please be specific. The LVDT's excitation voltage is 3 V rms which I will provide I am thinking by using an isolation transformer (I found one that might work, the Hammond 166 series with 115VAC primary and 2.5VAC secondary) to step down the building electricity.
