Micron Meters Portable Strain Gauge Display

Product Announcement from Micron Instruments

Micron Meters Portable Strain Gauge Display -Image

The PSD portable strain gauge indicator or load cell display combines extremely high resolution and low power with the convenience of a hand held display and keypad.

The 7 digit LCD display has peak and valley hold facilities. Calibration modes are auto, mv/v table or digital gain and offset. The display is TEDS enabled for automatic sensor calibration. RS232 output can be chosen as an option allowing connection to any RS232 interface whether it's a PC or simple data logger. See the PSD232 for more details.

The load cell display / strain gauge indicator is powered by two AA batteries providing long life using innovative power saving features. The enclosure is sealed to IP65 / NEMA 4 and a carry case option is available.

For use as a load cell indicator, strain gauge display, force display, weight indicator, weight monitor or load indicator able to drive up to 4 x strain gauge bridges.

Environmentally sealed to IP65 / NEMA 4 with 1 year Warranty.

The RS232 version of the PSD load cell or strain gauge indicator enables the connection to many RS232 interface's whether its a PC or simple data logger. The PSD232 is fitted with a 8 pin connector which allows users to connect the appropriate cabling for their application.

As with the standard PSD handheld, the PSD232 weighs only 250 grams and has a 7 digit LCD display with 6 tactile push buttons for access to on/off, gross/net, peak, trough, display hold and shunt cal functions. The indicator is micro processor based designed to interface with any full bridge sensor with an output sensitivity of up to 50mV/V. Bridge resistances from 85 ohms upwards can be used.

Two units of measure are able to be read and displayed such as kg & lbs. An annunciator indicates which range has been selected and there is a window, to insert a legend, describing each unit of measure.

The menu options accessed via the tactile keypad offers the ability to tailor the instruments response to the application including configuring the display update rate to either 0.5Hz, 1 Hz, 3Hz or 10Hz, setting auto power down, and overload. Calibration is also performed from the menu. Up to 450 hours battery life can be achieved whilst in power save mode with powering via 2 x AA Alkaline batteries (not included). An auto sleep/off function can be set ranging from 1 minute up to 99 minutes.

Both PSD's are TEDS 'Plug and Play' (Transducer Electronic Data Sheets) enabled.

1 year warranty with accessory options of a black leather carry case with shoulder strap which allows full operation of the PSD232 whilst being carried in the case.
