Resistive Interface Only

Loadstar Sensors provides a variety of interfaces that can connect to your ressitive load cell or other resistive sensor and offer either Analog outputs (0-5 VDC) to connect to a PLC or Digital Outputs (USART/UART, USB, XBee (802.15.4), WiFi or Bluetooth) to connect to a PC/Tablet/Smart Phone. We even offer devices that can get data from your sensor and transport it to the Cloud for easy access through a web browser anytime, anywhere on any Internet connected device!

AI-1000 Analog Interface

The Interface needs to be mated and calibrated with the sensor. Once calibrated, these need to be used as a pair. You can not use the interface(s) interchangeably with other sensors.

If you already have a sensor that you want to use with the new interface, you will need to send your sensor to us. Add the Calibration Service option to your order. We will calibrate the sensor with the new interface and send the calibrated pair back to you. 

In case you would like to calibrate the sensor with the interface yourself, please ensure that you have the reference weights or reference equipment required for calibration and the calibration utility to compute and burn calibration coefficients. Our software LoadVUE Pro (LV-1000)SensorVUE (SV-1000), and ControlVUE (CV-1000) have the calibration utility built-in. Make sure you have the latest version of the software.

USB/UART Interface

Select an interface to mate with the load cell you selected & add a calibration service for each load cell. The DI-1000U and DI-400U come with a miniB to USB A Output cable each. The DI-100U offers UART output by default and comes with a miniB to miniB output cable and an S2U Serial to USB Dongle. Add HX-100 adapter board for easy access to UART output. The max data rates and number of channels is shown for each item. If you need higher speeds see options in the next selection box.

High Speed USB Interface

When you need to measure dynamic forces, you may want to add one of these higher speed devices for faster data capture. Note that the DI-100, DI-400 and DI-1000 series work with LoadVUE Pro and SensorVUE software for data rates up to 1KHz. For DI-1000UHS-10K you must buy the LV-1000HS-10K software to display, log and plot data.

Analog Interface

When you need to connect your load cell to a PLC via analog signal, you can choose to do so via a 0-5V DC output or a 4-20 mA current output. For long distances from the interface (over 20 feet), we suggest the AI-1000-CV else the AI-1000 works great to connect with a PLC or DAQ.

Wireless Interface

When you want to connect with a PC or Mac wirelessly we recommend the DI-1000ZP wireless interface that works great for up to 300 odd meters or about a 1000 feet even in industrial settings. For less than 10 feet, and to connect with iOS devices we recommend the DI-1000BLE. The DI-1000WiFi is available but please contact us for availability and price.

Touch Screen LCD Displays

Use the DS-3000-Pro touch screen display with any USB load cell kit, i.e. load cell + interface. The load cell and interface pair must be calibrated before it is connected to the display. Use DS-3000-Pro-1 with single load cell kit and DS-3000-Pro-4 with up to 4 load cell kits. This display does not work with analog kits that use AI-1000 or AI-1000-CV. The touch-screen displays allow you to show values (numeric) from our digital load cells or resistive load cells connected to a digital interface. They work with a calibrated system (load cell + interface pair). You do NOT need a PC or software if you choose to use to display on one of these devices. It comes with a power supply with a US style two prong adapter.
