OMEGA’s new panel meter for load cells delivers high-performance at 1/8 DIN size for panel mounts and integration in a wide range of weight applications. The DPS20 accepts 4 and 6 wire load cells and provides 5 Vdc and 10 Vdc configurable excitation voltage to power the load cell. Two power supply options for high and low AC/DC power, allows this unit to be suited for global use.

The optional relays, analog output, and Modbus® RTU serial communications provide control and communication capability. Additional features of the DPS20 load cell meter include independent scaling of the load cell signal and reading units, prevention of false tares, stability alarms, and rear terminal with configurable function.

Can a 59k Ohm shunt sensitivity value be used for high load calibration? How would this be done?

Asked by: nate97
I should clarify, I need to complete the empirical characterization of the load cell step in the setup instructions for the strain meter. I do not need to adjust the calibration of the load cell itself. I'm using Omega PN 336253 30k lb through-hole load cell, with a calibration sensitivity of 1.758 mV/V and a shunt sensitivity at 59 kOhm of 1.485 mV/V.

Can this be used to measure a rosette strain gauge like the SGD-2-120-RY51?

Asked by: ksaiyo
The DPS20 display are designed to use with strain gage bridge based load cells and display values in units of force. They do not work well if you try to scale them to read units of strain directly. You would be better off using our DP8EPT-006 digital display.

How can I connect this meter with LCB103B-25 ? When I connect the meter with the load cell, the meter just displayed &quot;0&quot; and didn't change value. Please share detail instruction or video for initial setting if you have it.

What units does the load cell display? How does it take into account calibration information from the load cell manufacturer?

Asked by: Mechman
Hello Mechman, thank you for contacting omega. The unit will display just an absolute value based on what you enter the max reading to be, while scaling the unit. You may scale the meter to display any engineering units. This will not show the actual units itself. You will have to scale the meter manually before using this unit by using the sensitivity value on the calibration certificate.
