Applied Measurements DBBSM s-beam load cell with USB interface is a complete, on-site, USB, tension and compression measuring system. It is supplied ready calibrated to UKAS traceable standards with a DSCUSB USB interface, enabling you fast, plug and play data analysis.
Thanks to the DBBSM s-beam load cell’s high accuracy of <±0.03% and the DSCUSB USB interface’s high-speed readings of up to 100 per second, this s-beam load cell USB interface system is ideal for high accuracy force and load measuring in tension and compression applications such as tensile testing machines, suspended hoppers and geotechnical test equipment.
Applied Measurements s-beam load cell itself has a dual bending beam sensing design on capacities up to 1000kg and a shear web sensing design for capacities 2500kg and up, offering excellent accuracy at a specification of less than ±0.03% of rated capacity of better. Plus, to further ensure optimum performance, rod end bearings and load buttons are available to give you the best loading conditions for your application.
The DSCUSB USB interface converts the s-beam load cell’s signal into a digital USB serial output which plugs directly into your PC’s USB port. It requires no additional power supply as it receives all the power it needs from the USB bus. It uses the ASCII Protocol, has a high speed of up to 100 readings per second and a high resolution to 1 part in 200,000.
To complement the s-beam load cell USB interface system is a FREE toolkit software enabling PC-based calibration allowing the direct reading of the s-beam load cell’s strain gauge signal or to be input numerically using the mV/V sensitivity figures from the load cell’s calibration certificate. In addition, temperature compensation and linearisation can be set.
