I am trying to figure out how to get a reading from the FX29 Compact Compression Load Cell and was wondering if there was a connecting part that I needed to purchase.
The output type you will use to display your reading you have to use the Digital , voltage ( analog ) , or Digital . The datasheet shows a basic block diagram design Analog in this case.
I am a little unclear as to what you are asking. Can you elaborate?
Just to clarify, the FX29 load sensor series comes in 3 output formats:
- FX292X → differential mV output (20mV/V Wheatstone bridge, 6V supply max)
- FX293X → 0.5 - 4.5V (requires 5V supply)
- FX29K0 → Digital I2C (requires 5V supply)
It is offered with wires of either 40mm or 100mm, and comes either with or without a connector, the recommended mate to which is the 1734598-4.
So, you will need to select a device (microcontroller, PLC, etc.) which can interface with one or more of the output formats listed above, and then select the appropriate sensor to interface with that device.
