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.
- 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)
