FX5U – Built-in Analog Input to Load-Cell Device

The FX5U PLC has two built-in analog input channels. Each channel accommodates a 0-10Vdc range signal representing the instantaneous engineering value. In this case the engineering value is load-cell application based – which is normally weight or pressure related.

As can be seen the Load-Cell system consists out of a strain Gauge transducer and an amplifier – collectively known as a load-cell.

FX3U-4DA – Intelligent Module – Analog Input to Load-Cell Device

If a mA signal transition process is to be accomodated- a FX3U-4AD PLC module can be used.
