Loadstar Sensors Inc.’s iLoad Series of digital load/force sensors combine the core load or force sensing function with integrated computing and communications modules. The iLoad Digital USB sensor is designed to plug directly into the USB port of a PC and enable users to measure loads, forces or weights without any additional signal conditioning, data acquisition or special software. The sensor appears as a virtual COM port on a PC, enabling a user to directly read data using ASCII commands with any terminal emulator. For users who need an analogue output, the iLoad analogue sensor is built on the same digital platform as the digital USB version, but is designed to interface directly to a PLC or data acquisition system.
