Queens Award

In 2009 Mantracourt was proud to receive the Queen's Award for Enterprise in International Trade, the highest business accolade a UK company can win. Company Director David Wilmington accepted the award with the dedicated team at Mantracourt.

One of our core strengths is our load cell indicators and measuring and signal conditioners.

What is a Load Cell Indicator?

psd load cell indicator

Also known as a strain gauge indicator, a load cell indicator is designed and manufactured to display the real time data from load cells. Mantracourt's model PSD is a load cell display indicator which can also be used with other strain gauge based sensors such as torque transducers, pressure sensors as well as load cells.

The PSD battery powered strain gauge indicator is a microprocessor based portable instrument designed to interface with any full bridge sensor with an output sensitivity of up to 50mV/V. View the PSD Load Cell Indicator in more detail.

Using a Load Cell Indicator in the Field:

As an example of use, a calibration company could use the PSD load cell indicator to interface with TEDS enabled load cells for calibration and verification in the field. Encountering different environments and situations requires such calibration specialists to take readings from many different load cells.

A single load cell display can be used for all ranges of load cells from grams to tonnes. The calibration is held on a small TEDS capable IC buried inside the load cell itself. When connected to the load cell indicator the calibration data is read from the TEDS chip and used by the digital load cell indicator to display the measured signal in the correct calibrated units. Having high resolution and stable measurement as well as the advantage of one instrument connecting to many load cells, makes the handheld load cell indicator from Mantracourt very suitable for this situation.

What Can Be Connected To a Load Cell Indicator

load cell connection

The Mantracourt range of load cell indicators can be connected to a wide range of load cell types including compression, tensile, shear and torque.

There are different load cell types based on their electrical properties such as resistive, piezoelectric and capacitive however, the Mantracourt range load cell indicators can connect (or wirelessly connect) only to resistive bridge strain gauge types.

  • We have compiled some Frequently Asked Questions on the PSD Load Cell Indicator.
  • Mantracourt also produce a load cell indicator which can be connected to any RS232 interface and used to stream data to a PC or data logger for example. See Our Blog for more details.
