LoadVUE Pro (LV-1000)

Single Channel Software to Display, Log & Plot  Load/Force/Weight Data on a Windows PC or Tablet

LoadVUE Pro LV-1000 software to connect to load cells, sensors and display, log, and plot data

Our flagship software that works with any of our load cells with digital output (USB or Wireless XBee). You can change units,  see Peak and Low Values, send out alerts, recalibrate load cells, get remote support andhave easy access tools like Putty and Device Manager all from within the software. We highly recommend that you purchase this software, even if you plan to write your own software eventually.

Plotting Data

LoadVUE Pro LV-1000

Raw sensor readings as well as Peak and Low values can be plotted as a X-Y (Force vs. Time) plot. Additional data such as derived values (Formula sensors) as well as averaged and /or median readings can also be plotted to remove unwanted sensor noise, damp vibrations etc.

Logging Data

Data can be logged to Excel compatible CSV files. Depending on the sensor, data logging at different rates can be captured from a drop down list up to a maximum of 1000 Hz. For data rates up to 50 khz use LV-1000HS-10K software and for data rates up to 1 Khz use  SensorVUE software.

Select Units

LoadVUE Pro LV-1000

Sensor Data can be read in many applicable units, for example:
Pounds, Newton, Kilogram, Grams for force/weight sensors.

  • Use SensorVUE software for displaying/logging/plotting other types of sensors such as Torque, Displacement, Pressure, Level  etc. 

Formula Sensors to Generate Derivative Values

Combine one or more sensors to create a virtual sensor. Simple formulas (using the 4 basic operations: + - * / ) can be used to create a virtual sensor. For example if you are using a force sensor and know the area under the force, you can plot the stress by creating a formula Force/Area. You can then log, plot, set alarms on, etc these virtual sensors just as you would a real sensor. You can even combine formula sensors to create a new formula sensor.

Calibrate Sensors

LoadVUE Pro LV-1000

A utility to calibrate your digital load cells is included in the package. You can simply enter the mV/V information provided by the manufacturer or perform a 2 point or multipoint calibration and burn the coefficients into the sensor or interface.

Loadstar Sensors also provides NIST traceable calibration services if you would like us to perform the calibration for you.

Average and Median Filters

These filters can be applied to sensors to filter out unwanted noise and vibrations from the raw readings.

LoadVUE Pro LV-1000

Alarms

LoadVUE Pro LV-1000

Audio alarms can configured to trigger when specific conditions are met, for example, when load exceeds a specified limit. Emails and/or text messages can be sent when audio alarms are triggered.

You can use this feature during manufacturing operations for e.g. to let a technician know when a certain force threshold has been met.
