PD2-6100 Helios Strain Gauge, Load Cell & mV Meter

Brand: Precision Digital Corporation

Go with the Helios PD2-6100 when you have a weighing application where you need to read the display from a distance, or outside in the bright sunlight in temperatures between -40° to 65° C (-40° to 150° F).

The PD2-6100 tare feature can be used to remove the weight of the container from the weight calculation.

You can even re-transmit the weight signal with the PD2-6100's optional 4-20 mA output.
