, PT100LS load cell simulators are portable, lightweight devices designed to supply millivolt-per-volt level signals for testing and calibrating load cells and scale indicators.
These load cell simulators can be used for diagnostics and pre-installation calibration purposes in a range of weighing installations and load cell applications, and are also suitable for summer box and cornering diagnostics and for checking of ancillary equipment such as printers.
They feature both coarse and fine tune controls, offering from below 0mV/V to above 3.0mV/V output, with the fine setting able to adjust a factor of ~1/100 of this coarse range.
This allows the user to simulate an increasing/decreasing load to setup an initial pre-calibration for indicators, before being used in a field installation.
PT100LS load cell simulators are fitted with a DB9 male connector for direct connection to an indicator with matching connections. For connection to an indicator with different wiring an adaptor cable can be supplied.
For indicators requiring a 6 wire input (Sense wires) the Sense wires should be connected to the appropriate polarity Excitation terminal.
