Load Cell Logging Capability - MCC USB-1608GX

Question

I am curious if the USB-1608GX is suitable for use with load cells. I am attempting to measure the force of a contact that occurs over a duration of 10's of microseconds.

Hello,

If you have a typical load cell, the output is too small for the USB-1608GX to measure accurately. The average load cell reading is less than 20 mV. It would be best to have a signal conditioner to amplify the signal. However, it must have a wide bandwidth if the signal is present for only 10uS. The USB-1616HS is a better choice for a device because it has a 100 mV range and is faster than the USB-1608GX. It can run a single channel at 1M S/s, which would net you ten samples for the 10uS contact closure.

Best regards,
John
