Strain Gauge Transmitter

Acromag Strain Gauge or Load Cell Transmitters simplify bridge sensor measurements with easy software configuration and advanced functions.

Acromag’s Agility App Software provides powerful signal conditioning capability for precise conversion of bridging inputs to process current or voltage control signals

Strain Gauge Transmitter or Load Cell Transmitter

Firstly, the Acromag TT351 model is a space-saving four-wire Strain Gauge transmitter.  Secondly, it converts a four or six wire strain gauge bridge or load cell or millivolt sensor signal to an isolated voltage or current output signal. Also an optional DIN rail bus can deliver primary or redundant power to multiple units.

Above all setup and calibration are fast and easy.  With a convenient USB connection to your PC and Acromag’s Windows configuration software.

For instance, the transmitter’s input circuit allows true 6-wire bridge measurement.  It includes an adjustable bridge excitation supply (4 to 11V DC) with a remote sense feature. However, sense wires ensure the programmed excitation voltage is measured at the sensor and enable lead-wire compensation. Also the differential input performs true ratiometric conversions for extremely stable measurements.  That remain accurate over time and temperature.

In conclusion, Advanced signal processing capabilities, variable range input, and convenient USB programming make this instrument a very versatile strain/load measurement device.  Because these transmitters can withstand harsh industrial environments and operate reliably across a wide temperature range with very low drift. They feature RFI, EMI, ESD, EFT, and surge protection plus low radiated emissions.

Performance Specifications

Bridge Input

Input Types
Firstly, select from basic load cell, two quarter-bridge options, two half-bridge options, three full-bridge options, or millivolts.

Input Span/Range
Firstly, Bipolar input range is determined from the ± product of the gauge’s rated output.  Also the nominal excitation selection (2mV/V x 10V = ±20mV range).

Input Over-range
Firstly, the actual input range is up to (user-specified) ±150% of the range.  Secondly, this is obtained via the ± product of the gauge’s rated output and the nominal excitation applied.

Input Sensitivity
Likewise accepts gauge rated outputs up to 1mV/V to 10mV/V. Above all, the range of your input signal is the ± product of the excitation voltage and your gauge’s rated output.

Input Impedance
±IN at 15M ohms, ±SEN at 73.2K ohms, typical.

Input Lead Resistance
Likewise, module has sufficient overdrive to guarantee 10V bridge excitation with 5 ohms/lead and 100mA of internal excitation current. Also larger lead resistances may limit the maximum achievable internal bridge excitation.

Input Bridge Excitation (Internal)
Adjustable from 4V to 11V, 120mA maximum. Internal excitation must be turned OFF before external excitation supply connection.

Input Bridge Excitation (External)
