DW2

The SPLat DIN Family of controllers are an ideal solution for any job that needs a cheap programmable PLC inside a cabinet. Each product in the DIN Family is a fully programmable controller, so it can either be used by itself or wired up with other family members to get more I/O.

The DW2 controller has a high resolution 24 bit analogue to digital converter for measuring load cells / strain gauges and converting these measurements into weight.

The load cell terminals are electrically isolated from the rest of the controller and from the communications ports. This configuration imbues the DW2 with the ability to take stable readings even in an electrically noisy environment.

Note the DW2 cannot read both load cell inputs simultaneously. Your app must choose which channel to sample. Furthermore, the first few samples will be contaminated with some of the signal from the old channel which simply means we don&t recommend trying to do measurements with 2 channels at high speed.

The DW2 has the following features:

USB
