INTRODUCTION
The LCCU21 series is a compact and light compression digital load cell for force measurement. These can
be used for the load distribution measurement, compression measurement and etc. Also, connecting the
load cell to a computer using the USB cable allows for easy measurement.
3.
SOFTWARE FOR THE MEASUREMENT
By using the “WinCT-DLC” software for measurement, the measurement data can easily be confirmed on a
computer.
“WinCT-DLC” can be downloaded from A&D’s website (http://www.aandd.jp).

INSTALLATION
5-1. ATTACHING THE LOAD CELL
Attach the load cell to a rigid and flat base (the fixed surface). If there is slope or distortion on a part of
the base, it affects the measurement accuracy.
The mounting surface is gray area on the bottom of the load cell in the figure.
Do not apply load to the concavity of the center of the bottom (mesh area).
Don't defile with adhesive on mesh area.
Mesh area : Don't
apply load and don't
defile with adhesive.
Gray area :
Mounting surface
Clean the mounting surface before attaching the load cell.
Fix the position of the load cell using adhesive or the mounting holder.
Adhesive used
Use the cyanoacrylate adhesive.
Push gently the load cell so as to keep the position. Paste the adhesive to the place contacting the
fixed surface and outer circumference of the load cell. Hold the load cell until maintaining the position.
Do not apply excessive load and don't defile with adhesive on mesh area.
Peel and shave adhesive using cutter and etc. when removing the load cell. Don't hit and shock to the
load cell when removing it. Note injury and damage of the load cell in removing it.
Example of the load cell installation
Adhesive used
Paste the adhesive to the place
contacting the fixed surface and
outer circumference of the load cell.
Mounting holder used
Put the load cell into the mounting holder. Fix them.
Note M3 bolts are not included in accessories.

When using the load cell by securing the plastic case, secure it as shown in the figure below using the
two installation holes.
Note M3 bolts are not included in accessories.
M3 bolts (2 pieces)
Use the load cell with the load cell and computer at the same potential. Charging with the load cell may
cause malfunctions.
Specifically, take measures such as grounding the load cell.

5-2. LOADING TO THE LOAD CELL
Load a vertical load to the load cell indicated in the figure below. Avoid eccentric load, horizontal force
and moment.
Direction of force
Apply load to the load cell through a rigid surface.
5-3. CAUTIONS
Avoid a shock and excessive force to the load cell.
Keep a constant temperature using insulation, when the load cell is installed in a place exposed to
direct sunlight or radiant heat.
Handle the load cell cable gently. Do not pull it when using the load cell.
Prevent the plastic case from getting wet.
Only the provided USB cable should be used with this load cell. Using a USB cable other than the
provided USB cable may prevent the load cell from making proper measurement due to the effect of
noise.

CONNECTING TO THE COMPUTER
6-1. OPERATION PROCEDURE
1) Connect the device to the computer using the provided USB cable.
2) Select the Device Manager on the computer.
3) Click the “Ports (COM & LPT)”.
4) Confirm the COM Port number displayed. The numerical value indicated by x in “USB Serial Port
(COM x)” indicates the COM Port number.
If multiple load cells are simultaneously connected to the computer without confirming the COM Port
number, COM Port identification becomes difficult. Confirm the COM Port number one by one
beforehand when connecting.
6-2. IF THE DRIVER CANNOT BE INSTALLED SUCCESSFULLY
By connecting the load cell to the computer, the driver installation is automatically installed over a
period of a few minutes, and then the COM port number is displayed. If the COM port number is not
refreshed even after some time has passed, that may indicate a failure in installing the driver. If such
an error occurs, refer to the website of Future Technology Devices International. Ltd. to install the
driver.
6-3. CHANGING THE COMMUNICATION LATENCY TIMER
The LCCU21 series are capable of sampling at a rate of 100 times/s (10ms period). When the
communication latency timer is set above 10ms, a communication delay may occur. To avoid this, set the
communication latency timer as follows. The system may be unstable depending on the PC environment.
In that case, change the setting to the previous one.
1) As is done in "6.1 OPERATION PROCEDURE", select the “USB Serial Port (COM x)” in the "Device
Manager" and open the “Properties”.
2) Select the “Port Settings ” tab and then select the “Advanced”.
3) Set the Latency Timer (msec) in the "BM Options" under 10 (recommended value is 3 ).
