Fixed Gain Load Cell Amplifier Model: OM-5
Load Cell Central’s OM-5 load cell signal conditioner is an 18-26VDC powered, fixed gain load cell amplifier. The OM-5 works by amplifying the very low millivolt signal from the load cell to a more usable 0-10VDC analog output. Since it has a fixed gain it is ideal for applications in which further scaling can be performed by a computer or PLC. This load cell signal conditioner is ideal for OEM applications where high quantities and competitive pricing is necessary. The OM-5 works very well in batch weighing, process control, or check weighing systems.

An OEM manufacturer of ice vending machines contacted Load Cell Central for a low cost load cell and load cell signal conditioner to weigh bags of ice as they were being filled. The load cell needed to weigh up to 10 pound bags and the output needed to be 0-10VDC to interface to their existing PLC system. The OM-5 was a perfect fit being that it was low cost and small size to fit in the existing enclosure.
