REB5 Subminiature Load Cell
These tiny sub-miniature resistive load cells have good accuracy and stability for use in compression force measurement applications. They are available in 2 kg, 10 kg and 100 kg capacities, with diameters less than 13 mm and height as low as stud as low as 7 mm.
The base output from these load cells is about 2 mV/V. So if you supply 10V DC power to the load cell, you get about 20 millivolt of change for full scale. You can get USB output with our DI-100U or DI-1000U load cell interface, Wireless Output with our DI-1000ZP load cell interface or analog 0-5 V DC output with our AI-1000 strain gauge signal conditioner.
USB Load Cell Configuration
Simply connect the load cell to the DI-1000U Digital Load Cell Interface & use the USB out port on the DI-1000 to connect to a PC via the USB port. The DI-1000U is a signal conditioner and 24-bit digitizer and handles all the communications functions to talk with USB port of a PC. When connected this way, the load cell appears on the PC as a virtual COM port. Using a standard terminal emulator you can send commands to the sensor to display loads on screen. They can either be one at a time or in continuous operation mode. You can also use Matlab, LabView or other popular programs to communicate and get calibrated readings from the load cell. Alternatively, use our application (LoadVUE) to display, log or plot load measurements on a PC.
If you do not need the very high precision of the DI-1000U, you can use our DI-100U digital load cell interface with 16 bit ADCs and Serial TTL or USB output. The DI-100U is sufficient for accuracies of +/- 0.1% of full scale output. Or in other words if you need to measure +/- 1 lb accuracy over 1000 lb range or +/- 0.1 lb accuracy over 100 lb range, then the DI-100U is more than adequate for your application.
Wireless Load Cell Configuration
You can use this load cell wirelessly by connecting it to our DI-1000ZP wireless load cell interface. This configuration allows you to wirelessly connect to a Windows/Unix/Mac computer. On a Windows platform, you can use our LV-1000 LoadVUE Pro software to display, log and plot force vs time data effortlessly.
Four-Sensor USB Kit
If you are looking to build a weighing platform, you can purchase this kit which includes all items you would need:
Analog Load Cell ConfigurationFor applications where you want a force sensor input into a PLC (programmable logic controller) or DAQ (Data Acquisition System) we can calibrate the resistive load cell with our AI-1000 analog signal conditioner and calibrate the two together to provide a linear 0.5 to 4.5V DC output that is proportional to the full scale load.
If you are looking to develop your own custom software application, our digital USB load cells and wireless load cell interfaces offer convenient ASCII commands to obtain load information directly from the interfaces/load cells without need for any signal conditioning or data processing.
