Description

Instrumentation amplifiers are needed to amplify thrust signals produced by load cells for accurate measurements in Aerospike testing. Gains are used to increase the resolution thus providing accurate and measurable thrust data. This paper will discuss the design procedure for building a low noise amplifier box along with the results and comparisons from actual measurements.
