The DSJ1 mount board provides a convenient package that makes interconnection and field mounting of the DSC module quick and easy.

The DSJ1 has options for wall, surface or DIN rail mount.

The DSJ1 is designed for use with strain gauge sensors such as pressure transducers, load cells and torque sensors, the DSC family offers high speed and high precision signal conditioning digitising capabilities. Available output formats include RS232, RS485 ASCII, Modbus, & MantraCAN J1939.

Please Note: MantraCAN products will only work with Mantracourt software upto and including Windows 10.

  • Bus connections for communication and power supply
  • 2 part connectors for field terminals
  • D type 9 pin connecter for easy RS232 connection
  • Green LED power indicator
  • Red LED digital output indicator
  • Push switch to simulate digital input
  • CAN compliant - option
  • Choose & add the DSC digital strain card required to fit onto the DSJ1 
  • See case option in 'Order Info' tab below (Order Code: JAB)

For more than one input channel, model DSJ4 provides the ability to connect up to four model DSC's to a common communications bus. Several DSJ1's or DSJ4's can be connected to the same bus for distributed applications (except when using RS232).

For mounting internal to the sensor, the same electronics is also available in a compact miniature format and is known as the DCell Strain Gauge or Load Cell Embedded Digitiser Module.

Note that model DSJ1 is the designation of the printed circuit board complete with the connectors but DOES NOT INCLUDE the DSC. Therefore, when selecting this product, be sure to also select the appropriate DSC module from the relevant product info page.

The DSC card features:

  • Strain gauge to RS232, RS485 or CAN digital load cell conditioning card
  • OEM PCB format for easy fitting to products
  • Ultra high performance, resolution of 1 part in 200,000 (18bit)
