Can you point me to a meter/indicator that is compatible with this load cell?

Asked by: MrChris
That you for your inquire We have many meters that will work. Here are just a few. DP8PT,DP31PT,DP25B-S.,DP41-S Please contact us directly for more options.

Is there any vertical displacement under load and if so do you have charts ploting vertical displacement as a function of load?

Asked by: LouisV
Nominal full scale deflection of the load cell when full load is applied is 0.005". We do not have data indicating deflection as a function of load.

Does it work with DP41-E? and what is the Pin out for the 4 conductor? if there is a manual to show the pin outs for the load cell.

Asked by: Yaredt
It's not the best match for use with a load cell but the DP41-E will work. You will need to configure it for a 0 to 100 mV input range and set the internal sensor excitation voltage for 10VDC. Wiring of the load cell to the display is as follows. + Excitation to P9-1, + Signal to P9-2, - Signal to P9-3, - Excitation to P3-1. Do not jumper terminal P3-1 to P3-3. There is a full manual for DP41-E available for download on our website. You can access through the Manuals menu at the bottom of our homepage

What is the wash down rating?

Asked by: Sdeck
Hello, the LC8250 has a IP55 rating, it is not good for washdown applications since it is not watertight.
