How to Build a Scale

 

RSP1 Single Point Load Cell

precise load cell Precise
Non-Linearity from 0.05% of full scale.
rugged load cell Rugged Stainless Steel construction.
   
These single point load cells are excellent for building scales of all sorts! For e.g. bench scales, floor scales, medical scales, grocery scales, postal scales etc. You can use a single load cell to construct a 8" x 8" USB scale when combined with our DI-100U USB Load Cell interface. This load cell has excellent off center loading compensation and can handle significant side loads and has very good accuracy, stability and easy mounting features.
They are available in 5 kg to 150 kg capacities. Dimensions: 5.12" x 1.18" x 0.87" (130 mm x 30 mm x 22 mm)

USB Load Cell Configuration

RSP1 Universal Load Cell Configuration
  • One RSP1 single point load cell
  • One DI-1000U 24-bit digital load cell interface
  • Single-channel LV-1000 LoadVUE Pro software
  Buy RSP1 USB load cell kit

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.

  Buy RSP1 Wireless load cell kit

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.



Analog load cell configuration

RSP1 Universal Load Cell Configuration

  • One RSP1 single point load cell
  • One AI-1000 0-5V DC load cell interface
  Buy RSP1 Analog load cell kit

Some users want a high level 0-5V analog DC output in order to work with existing data acquisition systems or PLCs. Ih that case, you can use this load cell with our AI-1000 Load Cell interface which provides an amplified 0.5 to 4.5V output proportional to the applied loads. We can provide the system together with calibration and the formula to convert from voltage to loads/forces when ordered in this configuration.

      Application Development

      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. With just a few commands you'll be able to incorporate load/force/weight information into your application. You can also use Visual Basic, Visual C++, Matlab, LABView or any other application development environment to create your custom applications with our interface/load cells. See our support pages for details.
