Is this model compatible with NI and LabView?

Asked by: darren
This load cell is simply a strain gage bridge device the produces a linear millvolt output over the load range of the cell. NI and Labview should have devices the accept this type of signal. NI for sure has devices the will both power the load cell and read the signal output

is this a full, half, or quarter bridge device?

Asked by: DanielM
This is a full bridge device

What is the sensitivity of this device?

Asked by: EdgarV
Nominal sensitivity of the LC304 Series is 2mV/V which would give you a 0 to 20 mV output signal across the calibrated range of the load cell with the 10VDC excitation supplied.
