4-Ch Strain Gauge F1 CAN Module.

The μ is the versatile universal measuring module for analogue standard signals. The module is equipped to measure strain gauge full bridge signals using 4-wire technology at an adjustable sample rate of up to 1 kHz per input. The bridge is excited directly from the module with a ratio-metric measurement.
Signals are linearised and evaluated within the robust aluminium die-cast casing. Data is sent over the CANbus interface to a central processing unit or PC. Freely expandable and can be stacked. Due to the rugged IP65-rated casing, the modules are ideally suitable for temporary as well as mobile applications.
