What do i need record data from this load cell Item# LCWD-100K

Asked by: Bill Starch
You could use either a DP8EPT Display to visually read the force load and communicate with a computer via USB to collect the data or you can use our OM-CP-BRIDGE101A data logger (no display) to collect data via USB to a computer.

When I setup theHigh Accuracy, Load Washers to Measure Bolt Compression with the DP8EPT display, I cannot Tare/ Zero with the display?

Asked by: NeilMAec
Thank you for your inquiry, the tare function must be enabled through the menu on the DP8EPT please consult the manual for instructions.

How do I prevent the load cell from rotating when torqueing a bolt against the cell?

Asked by: bobbywagz
Bobby, once the load cells are mounted in place, it is suggested that you use hardened washers both on the top and bottom of the load cell while torqueing your bolt.

Is the STRAIN GAGE/BRIDGE TRANSDUCER-SIGNAL CONDITIONERS required for a purchase of the High Accuracy, Load Washers to Measure Bolt Compression + DP8EPT display?

Asked by: NeilMAec
Thank you for your inquire No need to go with a signal conditioner unless you are in need to change the signal for the distance? most load cell can go as far as 50 feet. Any distance longer you would need to change the loadcell signal to a current or voltage.

Do I need to buy the custom meter, or can I read this device with an existing standard voltmeter or ADC?

Asked by: vince_ornl
You can use a precise digital to measure the 0 to 20mVDC output signal and then calculate the applied load is. We suggest using one of our DP8EPT displays. It will supply the required 10VDC power to the cell and you will be able scale the display to read directly in units of force.

On the LCWD Load cell, can I use a 5 VDC excitation instead of 10 VDC?

Asked by: Corky
Yes you can. The only difference would be the output signal would be 50% lower
