The RG smart load cell from Mark-10 is a plug-and-play force measurement building block designed for integration within assembly systems, weighing systems, and other process automation and testing automation applications. All functions are controlled by commands sent from a PC or PLC via its RS-232 connector. The RG’s ASCII command library allows for peak-force recall, set points, data averaging, data filtering, calibration, and many other functions. With a rugged aluminum housing, the RG is durable enough to withstand the rigors of manufacturing environments. Capacities are available from 2 to 200 lbf (9 to 900 N).
