The PMD-STRAIN is a panel mounting
display for use with strain gauge bridge
based sensors,; including load cells, load
pins etc.
This series of display offers very simple
operation and configuration. The PMDSTRAIN does not use a menu system to
configure and calibrate the display,
making installation and commissioning
very straightforward.
To simplify commissioning even further, the product instruction manual provides step by step
pictorial details for each function that you may want to configure, saving time searching through an
overly complex manual trying to find that one parameter that you wish to change.
Options valuable for the PMD-STRAIN include:-
• Wide choice of
analogue, relay or
digital outputs
Power supply options available include 95-265vac, 11-30vdc and 48vac.
• All option boards are
pluggable and can be
The main application for the PMD-STRAIN is for simple crane weighing applications, hoist and
winch monitoring, as well as many other force measurement applications.
• IP65 sealed (option
for IP67 sealing)
Output options available include 4-20mA, 0-10v, ±10v, 2 relay alarms, 4 relay alarms, RS232 or
Different input signals are available including Serial input (see PMD-SERIAL), process input (see
PMD-PROCESS). LCM Systems engineers will be pleased to discuss your specific application
requirements with you. They will be able to advise on the correct product selection, options
required and advise on suitable sensors, where required.
