The instrument will power the load cell. The mV/V signal coming back from the load cell is converted by the indicator and displays the force in a unit (e.g.: KG, kN, lb – customers choice). The indicators within this range are encased so that the operator can either use it on the move (if battery powered) or be a permanent fixture, e.g.: wall mounted.
The load cell and instrument will require calibrating together for the system to work correctly. This is done by applying a known force to the load cell and the instrument’s gain being set.
