OM-CP-BRIDGE101A
Product Notes
The OM-CP-BRIDGE101A Data Logger measures and records voltage, typically used in conjunction with strain
gauges, load cells or other low-level DC voltage sources. This device is designed to accurately measure and
record the output of the gauge to determine parameter levels such as stress, torque, strain, and pressure on a
structure of item over a period of time.
Available in three different measurement ranges (±30 mV, ±160 mV, or ±1200 mV), the OM-CP-BRIDGE101A
offers a reading rate of up to 4Hz with memory capacity of 1,000,000 readings (memory wrap optional). The
device can be configured to start at a specified date and time up to 24 months in advance and a push button
start/stop feature allows the user to initiate or cease logging data in the field if desired.
**Omega recommends using 350 Ω or 1000 Ω strain gauges. 120 Ω strain gauges can be used with the OM-CP-BRIDGE101A but is not
recommended as it will reduce the battery life, potentially increase noise level and limit the low end temperature operation.
LEDs
- Green LED: every 10 seconds to indicate logging and 15 seconds to indicate delayed start mode.
- Red LED: every 10 seconds to indicate low battery and/or memory and 1 seconds to indicate an alarm
condition.

Installation Guide
Installing the Interface cable
- OM-CP-IFC200
Insert the device into a USB port. The drivers will install automatically.
Installing the software
Insert the Omega Software Flash Drive in an open USB port. If the autorun does not appear, locate the drive
on the computer and double click on Autorun.exe. Follow the instructions provided in the Installation Wizard.
Device Operation
Connecting and Starting the data logger
1. Once the software is installed and running, plug the interface cable into the data logger.
2. Connect the USB end of the interface cable into an open USB port on the computer.
3. The device will appear in the Connected Devices list, highlight the desired data logger.
4. For most applications, select “Custom Start” from the menu bar and choose the desired start method,
reading rate and other parameters appropriate for the data logging application and click “Start”. (“Quick
Start” applies the most recent custom start options, “Batch Start” is used for managing multiple loggers at
once, “Real Time Start” stores the dataset as it records while connected to the logger.)
5. The status of the device will change to “Running”, “Waiting to Start” or “Waiting to Manual Start”,
depending upon your start method.
6. Disconnect the data logger from the docking station and place it in the environment to measure.
Note: The device will stop recording data when the end of memory is reached or the device is stopped. At this
point the device cannot be restarted until it has been re-armed by the computer.
Downloading data from a data logger
1. Connect the logger to the interface cable.
2. Highlight the data logger in the Connected Devices list. Click “Stop” on the menu bar.
3. Once the data logger is stopped, with the logger highlighted, click “Download”. You will be prompted to
name your report.
4. Downloading will offload and save all the recorded data to the PC.

Device Maintenance
Battery Replacement
Materials: Small Phillips Head Screwdriver and a Replacement Battery (OM-CP-BAT105)
1. Puncture the center of the back label with the screw driver and unscrew the enclosure.
2. Remove the battery by pulling it perpendicular to the circuit board.
3. Insert the new battery into the terminals and verify it is secure.
4. Screw the enclosure back together securely.
Note: Be sure not to over tighten the screws or strip the threads.
