This most advanced Load Cell Tester model LCT-Ultimate is a stand-alone hand-held device that was especially designed for full trouble shooting of strain-gage based load cells. The LCT-Ultimate can check all common types of standard load cells that are available on the market:
4 or 6 wires @ all rated gain outputs.
The LCT-Ultimate provides the user with all essential data needed about the tested load-cell:
Bridge resistance and integrity
Physical distortion (possibly caused by overload, shock, load or metal fatigue)
Checks insulation resistance (can point to moisture or chemical ingress)
Fast testing of load cells and scales
Can be used to check multi load-cell scale alignment.
Continuous signal reading allows for checking linearity and repeatability
Very user friendly, full test within 5 seconds
Input and Output resistance: up to 5000 ohm at 0.5 ohm resolution
Sense resistance (for 6 wire L/C): up to 500 ohm at 0.1 ohm resolution
Insulation resistance: Max:> 5000 Mohm and Minimum: <10 Mohm
Load cell output in percentage of full scale: ± 250% at 0.01% resolution (input load > 50?)
Gain adjustment: 0.1 - 5 mv/V steps of 0.01
