Thanks for using the load cell module DVP201/202/211LC-SL. To ensure that the product is correctly installed
and operated, users need to read the operation manual carefully before they use DVP201/202/211LC-SL.
 The operation manual provides functional specifications, and introduces installation, basic operation and
setting, and the usage of DVP201/202/211LC-SL.
 DVP201/202/211LC-SL is an OPEN-TYPE device. It should be installed in a control cabinet free of airborne
dust, humidity, electric shock and vibration. To prevent non-maintenance staff from operating
DVP201/202/211LC-SL, or to prevent an accident from damaging DVP201/202/211LC-SL, the control
cabinet in which DVP201/202/211LC-SL is installed should be equipped with a safeguard. For example, the
control cabinet in which DVP201/202/211LC-SL is installed can be unlocked with a special tool or key. DO
NOT touch any terminal when DVP201/202/211LC-SL is powered up.
 In order to prevent the product from being damaged, or prevent staff from being hurt, users need to read the
operation manual carefully, and follow the instructions in the manual.
1.1 Principle of a Load Cell
If a metallic material undergoes tension or strain, it will become thin, and its electrical impedance will increase.
If a metallic material is compressed, its electrical impedance will become small. A strain gauge adopting this
principle is called a load cell. Such sensing device is able to convert physical pressure into electrical signals,
and therefore it is widely used on occasions on which loads, tension and pressure need to be converted into
electrical signals.
1.2 Introduction of a Load Cell
A load cell module provides 24-bit resolution applicable to 4-wire or 6-wire load cells with various eigenvalues.
Therefore, its response time can be adjusted according to users’ requirements. On this basis, the requirements
of load application markets can be easily met. Besides, a DVP series PLC* can read data in a load cell module
or write data to a load cell module by means of the instruction FROM/TO.
*: DVP-SV series PLCs, DVP-EH2-L series PLCs, DVP-SA2 series PLCs, and DVP-SX2 series PLCs support
left-side extension modules.

3.4 Selecting a Load Cell Sensor
1. Exciting voltage:

5.
3-6
An excitation voltage is external power provided for a load cell sensor. The maximum voltage that a sensor
can accept is specified in the specifications for the sensor. The exciting voltage that a load cell module
provides is +5 V, and therefore a sensor which can accept a voltage greater than 5 V can be used.
Eigenvalue
A load cell sensor uses a bridge circuit. If a load cell is under pressure, SIG+ and SIG- will output voltages
which are in proportion to force. An eigenvalue determines the characteristics of the output of a load cell
sensor. The unit used is mV/V. If a load cell receives external force, it will output low voltage.
Output a sensor: (Force/Maximum rated load)×(Exciting voltage×Eigenvalue)
Example: The eigenvalue of a sensor is 2 mV/V, and the maximum rated load of the sensor is 10 kg. The
voltage provided by a module is 5 V. The voltage to which the maximum rated load corresponds is 10 mV.
If the load of the sensor is 1 kg, the voltage that the sensor outputs will be 1 mV. The eigenvalue that the
module can support is 80 mV/V. The sensors whose eigenvalues are less than 80 mV/V can be used.
Maximum rated load
When users select a load cell module, they have to consider factors such as loads, tares, vibrations, and
shocks. The closer the load on a load cell sensor is to the maximum rated load specified in the
specifications for the load cell sensor, the more accurately the load is measured.
Four-wire configuration/Six-wire configuration
There are two ways to wire a load cell sensor. They are a four-wire configuration and a six-wire
configuration. A load cell module provides power for a load cell sensor by means of EXC+/EXC-. However,
there is impedance between the load cell module and the sensor. The voltage that the sensor actually
receives is less than the voltage provided by the module. The output terminals SIG+ and SIG- on a sensor
have relations with the voltages received. If the distance between a module and a sensor is short, the
impedance between the module and the sensor will be small, and a four-wire configuration can be adopted.
If the distance between a module and a sensor is long, a six-wire configuration can be used to reduce the
error resulting from the impedance between the module and the sensor.
Estimating precision
The precision of a load cell module is 0.04%. The maximum rated load of a load cell sensor multiplied by
0.04% is the maximum precision that a load cell module can resolve. (The measurement time set by
default is 50 milliseconds.) If the measurement time set is longer, the precision presented will increase.
When users select a load cell sensor, they have to check whether the conversion time of the load cell
sensor and the precision of the load cell sensor meet their requirements.

4.3 Descriptions of Functions
4.3.1 Measuring a Net Weight
Users can choose to measure the net weight or the gross weight of an object. A net weight is the weight of a
product, that is, the actual weight of a product without its package. The weight of a package is a tare. A gross
weight is a total weight, namely a net weight plus a tare.
 Tare: A tare is the weight of a package
 Net weight: A net weight is the weight of a product, that is, the actual weight of a product without its
package.
 Gross weight: A gross weight is a total weight, namely the weight of a product itself (a net weight) plus the
weight of a package (a tare).
 Gross weight=Net weight+Tare
Example: A product weighs 10 kilograms, and the carton in which the product is packed weighs 0.2
kilograms. The total weight gotten is 10 kilograms.
Net weight=10 kg
Tare=0.2 kg

 CR#7: Displaying a gross weight/net weight
 CR#8~11: Tare measured by CH1/CH2
4.3.2 Stability Check
When an object is put on a load cell, users can check whether the present weight of the object is in a stability
range specified.
 If a weight measured is in a stability range specified by users (CR#18/CR#19), bit 6/bit 11 in CR#51 will be
set to 1.
 If a weight measured exceeds a range specified by users (CR#18/CR#19), bit 6/bit 11 in CR#51 will be set
to 0. Bit 6/Bit 11 in CR#51 will not be set to 1 until the number of weights measured in a stability range
reaches the value in CR#16/CR17.
Example: The measurement time set is 10 milliseconds, the number of weights measured in a stability range is
10, and the stability range set is 1000 grams. If a variation exceeds 1000 grams, bit 6/bit 11 in CR#51 will be set
to 0. If the variations in 100 milliseconds (10×10 ms) are within 1000 grams, bit 6/bit 11 in CR#51 will be set to 1.
(Users should judge whether the present weight measured is in the stability range set before they perform
control.)

4.3.4 Filtering out Weights
There are two ways to filter out weights.
 Filtering out the maximum/minimum weight measured: If there is a maximum weight or a minimum weight,
CR#45/CR#46 can be used to filter out the maximum weight or the minimum weight. If the value in
CR#45/CR#46 is bigger, more weights will be filtered out. Setting range: K0~K8
 Averaging weights: The values read are averaged so that a steady value is obtained. There may be peak
values due to unavoidable external factors, and the average value obtained changes accordingly. The
maximum number of values which can be averaged are 100.

The purpose of making adjustment is to make the weight measured by a cell correspond to the digital value
displayed in a load cell module. Generally, two points are adjusted. After a system is set up, users can put no
load on the scale. The weight measured is 0 grams when no load is put on the scale. The users can put a given
weight on the scale, and set a digital value corresponding to the weight. The two points are adjusted. For
example, if a load cell sensor which can measure a maximum weight of 10 kg is used, and 1 kg correspond to
K1000, the curve presented will be like the one shown below.

Example: One point is adjusted. (A weight which weighs 1 kg corresponds to 1000 lsb.)
A load cell module is directly connected to the left side of a DVP series PLC. The instruction TO is used to make
adjustment. The steps in making adjustment are as follows.
Step 1: Write K2 to CR#25. Please see the WPLSoft program shown below.
Step 2: Connect a load cell to a module, and put no load on the load cell.
Step 3: Write H’0001 to CR#26. Please see the WPLSoft program shown below.
Step 4: Select point 1 (default setting), and write H1 to CR#27. Please see the WPLSoft program shown below.
Step 5: Put a standard weight which weighs 1000 g on the load cell.

500 lsb. The weight of the second weight is 1000 g. It corresponds to 1000 lsb. The weight of the third weight is
