Overview

The Load Cell Amplifier is a component of the PASCO Structures System series. Connect Load Cells (sold separately) to the amplifier and measure forces at any point in your structure. An Interface must be connected to the load cell amplifier to properly read the amplifier output.

The Load Cell Amplifier is available with either 2 or 6 ports, and can be purchased individually or in convenient sets including Load Cells. Typical usage is to replace an element in a truss or bridge or other structure with two smaller elements joined to a Load Cell that is connected to a Load Cell Amplifier that is connected to an interface.
