RG Force Sensor Module - DISCONTINUED

Click images to enlarge.
The RG smart load cell is a plug-and-play force measurement building block designed for integration within assembly systems, weighing systems, and other process automation and testing automation applications. All functions are controlled by commands sent from a PC or PLC via its RS-232 connector. The RG's ASCII command library allows for peak force recall, set points, data averaging, data filtering, calibration, and many other functions. A rugged aluminum housing makes the RG durable enough to withstand the rigors of manufacturing environments. Capacities are available from 2 lb to 200 lb (10 N to 1000 N).

Features

  • Measures tension and compression forces
  • RS-232 and Mitutoyo outputs
  • Averaging mode for average readings over time
  • General purpose I/O for external device control
  • Selectable units of measurement
  • Peak memory for tensile and compressive forces
  • Dedicated force limit outputs for direct hardware control (relays, etc)
  • GCL-Gauge Control Language for full computer control
  • External trigger for contact or switch testing and data capture
  • Programmable analog and digital filters
  • Programmable default configuration
  • Power via 9 - 12 VDC
  • Optional cable with bare leads for integration with PC/PLC and external power supply
