EsmaCAT 16CH Loadcell Interface

The EsmaCAT 16CH Loadcell Interface is the easiest, precise integrated solution to read loadcells or other strain-gauge sensors with built-in programmable amplifiers. It is capable of interfacing even 6 axis loadcells without the need for separate amplifier hardware.  Its various programmable gain amplifier (PGA) and error minimization technology, such as the 24-bit delta-sigma (ΔΣ) modulator and on-board calibration, ensure the precision of measurement allowing 16bit effective resolution. Power-over-EtherCAT (POE) technology allows high speed communication and flexible connectivity by supporting daisy-chain wiring. The 16Ch Loadcell Interface is a part of the EsmaCAT suite and is the ideal interface solution for both novice and expert Robotics engineers due to its compact size, easy programmable master software, and hardware setup.

Supported Features

  • Integrated Power Supply (Power-over-EtherCAT)
  • Programmable Voltage Buffer (for high impedance voltage inputs)
  • On-board Amplifier (with self-calibration)
  • 7 Digital I/O Pins (Selectable I/O direction)
