Description
Strain Gage,
Hand Held
Dispaly
The PRO8100 is a completely portable (strain gage) battery powered indicator, packaged in a small, robust IP65 / NEMA 4 enclosure. Two separate ranges are available, which enable the instrument to read and display two units of measure.
Stellar Technology provides a selection of DIN-rail mount signal conditioners and In-line signal conditioners to compliment our millivolt per volt output load cells and force sensors. These products provide valuable complementary solutions for those applications requiring high level analog outputs and where the load cell or force sensor is exposed to conditions detrimental to internal signal conditioning or the required load cell for force transducer configuration will not accommodate an internal amplifier.
