Easy to use, low cost DI-100U converts any resistive load cell into a USB load cell

Fremont, California - Loadstar Sensors Inc. today announced the availability of its DI-100U USB load cell interface for resistive load cells. The DI-100U digital load cell interface provides an easy to use, low-cost load cell solution to con-vert the analog milli volt output from a resistive load cell into a PC compatible USB output. Just connect a load cell to the DI-100U and seamlessly acquire calibrated load data in Lbs/Newtons/Kgs. The DI-100U enables you to simplify the process of building a PC friendly load or force measurement system.

The highlights of this solution are:
  • 16 bit ADC for better than 0.1% accuracy load cells
  • Optional 24 bit ADC solution with DI-1000 Series
  • Interface draws power from USB port of PC
  • Compatibility with PCs running Windows XP or Vista
  • Calibrated output in (Lbs/Newtons/Kgs) in ASCII format
  • ASCII command set for easy software integration
  • On demand or continuous mode for display of loads
  • Optional wireless option with DI-1000Z or DI-1000ZP
  • Optional LoadVUE software allows user to log and plot data on a PC

    "Our USB load cell solution (DI-1000U) is very popular with customers and we got a lot of requests for a lower cost version of the product for users that don't need the 24 bit resolution of our high end DI-1000 series solution" says Div Harish, President & CEO of Loadstar Sensors, Inc. "We listened to our customers and developed the DI-100U. We hope they like the simplicity and robustness of our solution and make it a part of their load, force or weight measure-ment solution."
