Digital load cells provide innovation for modern manufacturing processes that require dynamic weighing capabilities, high maximum capacity ratings and extreme accuracy. Digital load cells can be custom configured to meet the specific requirements of the application, they are highly versatile, and they provide long service life and improved reliability.
Industries from civil engineering, agriculture and marine to industrial processing and silo/weighing rely on digital load cells. They benefit from features such as enhanced error reporting for fault conditions, advanced software integration, and the ability to utilize multiple digitizer modules. Load Cell Central will help assess factors — including physical installation needs, communications protocol and output requirements — to direct you to the device best suited to your application.
The DSC series of load cell / scale digitizing units offer ASCII, Modbus, RS232, RS485, and MantraCAN outputs. This allows the DSC to connect directly to a PLC, computer, or other process control device. With up to 500 updates per second (streaming output) it is ideal for applications such as dynamic testing and high speed filling machines. It is easily intregrated into an OEM device by using the header pin connection points, or can be fitted into a single channel DSJ1, or a 4-channel DSJ4 field-attachable board, each one with an optional ABS IP65 standard enclosure or DIN rail mounted enclosure.or DIN rail mounted enclosure.

Single channel field attachable break-out board for the DSC load cell transmitter.
Key attributes of the DSC include an ultra-miniature “puck” format to fit restricted spaces, along with adjustable sensitivity, temperature sensing and compensation, and linearity compensation capabilities. The DSC offers high-precision 25ppm-basic-accuracy and high stability 5ppm-basic-accuracy that exceed typical performance standards. Serial output, digital calibration, self-diagnostics and multiple output options provide additional user benefits.
Using the provided software, the force transducer (strain gage load cell), pressure sensor, or extensometer can be calibrated and ready to use in minutes. The freeInstrument Explorer software allows the user to configure and save the setup and calibration data to the PC.
