The DSC Digital Load Cell or Strain Gauge Digitiser Modules, available from Aptifirst Ltd, are an easy-to-use, cost-effective means of connecting suitable sensors to digital PC or PLC systems. Designed for use with strain gauge sensors such as pressure transducers, load cells and torque sensors, the DSC offers high speed, high precision strain gauge signal conversion with linearisation and temperature compensation of the sensor, and will provide an output in the engineering units of your choice. The devices have many applications, including laboratory and R&D, aerospace, defence, marine, food, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, plastics and rubbers, sports technology, production and manufacturing, troubleshooting, weighing, and many others.
Available output formats include RS232, RS485 ASCII, Modbus, MantraCAN (J1939).
For mounting internally inside sensors, the same electronics package is available also in a compact miniature "puck" format , the DCell, though RS232 is not an option with these.
For mounting in a convenient IP65 enclosure, or for multiple load cell installations, two easy-connect mounting housings are available, the DSJ1 (1channel) and DSJ4 (up to 4 channels).
Try our ready to go Evaluation Kit which includes one DSC or DCell. First select the DSC you require and ask for the appropriate Evaluation Kit as an accessory item.
The major features are:
* Strain gauge to RS232, RS485 or CAN digital load cell conditioning card
* OEM PCB format for easy fitting to products
* Ultra high performance, resolution of 1 part in 400,000 (18bit, or 0.00025%)
* High speed, up to 500 updates per second
* Auto calibration or direct entry of mV/V with linearisation
* Programmable dynamic filter
* Temperature compensation
* Error reporting including strain gauge fault conditions and overloads
* Peak and trough (valley) recording
* Remote shunt calibration by software command or digital input
* Software enabling 24 DSC or DCells to be viewed and logged simultaneously
