Applied Measurement Australia introduces a new and improved load cell amplifier from electronic instrumentation company Mantracourt.
Mantracourt’s LCA20 is a flexible digital signal conditioning amplifier for single or multiple load cell applications, offering advantages such as one-pass calibration and fast setup.
The versatile LCA20 load cell weight indicator offers three options for programmable digital inputs including Auto Tare, Peak Hold and Reset. Two additional relay outputs are provided for control or alarm functions, allowing the new load cell amplifiers to support up to ten 350 ohm load cells.
Key features of the Mantracourt LCA20 load cell amplifier include a simplified digital set-up via PC; 10-point linearisation and provision of measurement speeds of 10 or 80 samples per second; RS232 and RS485 options for digital communications (including setup); ability to support label or ticket printers; enabled with an easy one-pass calibration and fast setup procedure; and supporting Mantrabus 1 & 2, MANTRA ASCII 2 and MODBUS RTU protocols.
The LCA20 load cell amplifier is housed in an ROHS compliant enclosure and is environmentally sealed to IP65/NEMA 4 (dimensions 200 x 120 x 75 mm). DIN rail or PCB module versions are also available.
