Tacuna Systems Load Cell Amplifier

Tacuna System’s in-house designed load cell amplifier is a cost-effective embedded solution for your strain measurement needs. This miniaturized strain gauge amplifier accepts or completes a single Wheatstone bridge arranged in quarter, half, or full bridge modewhile also accepting a standard load cell.

See product specifications tab to view all available configurations and options.

Key Features

For Tacuna System’s in-house designed Load Cell Amplifier, gain and offset adjustment can be manually controlled from a gain select dip switch and offset adjust potentiometer (M version) or programmatically (X version). Interface this strain gauge amplifier with your microprocessor, analog-to-digital converter (ADC), or programmable logic controller (PLC) for reliable strain signal measurements.

  • Amplified analog voltage output 0-5V range
  • Unipolar operation eliminates need for bipolar data acquisition device
  • Ability to handle low bridge resistances (down to 10 ohms in special cases)
  • Vibration resistant circuitry for harsh environments (no low voltage piezoelectric effects)
  • Interface directly with any analog LabVIEW DAQ or other DAQ systems
