Our instruments can be used to measure load cell outputs. Two important consideratins are voltage input range and resolution. Load cells typically outpu a very low voltage, some around Â±10mV. If you are a user of automotive oscilloscopes, you should be able to read the output with some accuracy. Our USB Automotive oscilloscopes are 12bit resolution with the smallest voltage range of Â±20mV. This gives you a resolution of 9.8microvolt steps. If a 10 ton loadcell at full load outputs 10mV, then you would see 0.008 ton steps.
In this case, any of our 12bit scopes would see the output from a load cell. As you are an automotive engineer, I would suggest our Automotive series for multiple applications of the instrument.
