Load Cell Module
By DE staffMotion Control Machine Building
Delta Computer’s LC8 Load Cell module pairs with company’s RMC200 motion controller.
Delta Computer Systems launched its LC8 Load Cell module module for its RMC200 motion controller. The module connects directly to eight load cells without the need for external signal conditioners. The module provides eight load cell inputs, divided between two detachable terminal blocks. The maximum sensitivity is 5mV/V in full Wheatstone bridge configurations, and quarter and half bridge configurations are supported with a user-supplied bridge completion circuit. Both four and six wire load cells are supported. Each of the eight inputs includes a sense input for wire voltage drop compensation. Excitation voltage is 6.75V, designed for 350-ohm load cells; lower resistance load cells are supported as long as current limits are not exceeded. Externally supplied excitation voltage is also supported within input range and maximum differential limits.
