Gain setting suggestions for a 500kg load cell?

Postby nickj » Thu Sep 11, 2014 9:18 pm

Hi all

I have had a look at the load cell primer page and the user guide for the 4 port bridge.

I have just purchased
- PhidgetBridge 4-Input 1054_0 1 and
S-Type Load Cell (0-500kg) -CZL301

My question: I'm interested in getting full range from 0 to 500kg readings from this load cell (to be integrated into a rolling road dynamometer setup so i will need ). Has anybody got suggestions on what "gain" setting i should be using as I'd like to get full range or close to it and still have reasonable resolution of a few kg if possible..

Any suggestions welcomed.

all good. question answered. load cell primer and user guide for bridge helped as well as a bit of trial and error with the new toys.
