This is achieved either by integrating a signal digitiser into/onto the load cell body if there is space available, creating a stand-alone digital load cell or by mounting a digitiser externally.
External digitisers can be mounted in-line on the load cell’s cable inside a small enclosure, or they can be mounted in a larger ABS enclosure suited to desktop or ‘in panel’ use.
There are several formats of the circuitry available for your digital load cell;
- DCell Load Cell Digitiser – Miniature ‘puck’ format designed for use within the body of the load cell
- DSC Load Cell Digitiser – Larger card format allowing a greater choice of output options
- DSC-USB Load Cell Digitiser – Quick and convenient single channel measurement and data acquisition from a compact palm-sized unit directly linked to your PC or laptop via a USB port without the need for any external power.
Customised single or multi-channel digital load cell monitoring and control systems based on the DCell, DSC or DSC-USB are available along with customised software where appropriate.
