The DSJ1 digital converter mount board gives a simple and convenient method of interconnection and field mounting of the DSC module, quick and easy for communication with PC and PLC.
It is designed to connect one single DSC load cell converter module and has options for wall, surface or DIN rail mount.
The DSJ1 digital converter mount board is suitable to use with strain gauge sensors such as pressure transducers, load cells and torque sensors. The DSC load cell converter 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 up to and including Windows 10.
Additional Input Channels for the Digital Convert Mount Board
If you need more than one input channel, the DSJ4 mount board can 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).
Internal Mounting of the Load Cell Digitiser
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.
