The ADC20 & 24 both have the following output values:
Reference output
+2.5 V ±2.5 mV @ 2 mA
Power outputs
+5 V ±1.0 V @ 2 mA
-5 V ±1.5 V @ 2 mA

When using a Load cell, you may need to supply external power. Some load cells draw higher currents. The ADC20 & 24 take their supply from the USB ports on your PC. The total current available is 500mA.
