Introducing Electronics

The electronics connected to your strain gauge load cells are critical to the overall performance of your weight measurement system. Group Four Transducers, Inc. offers a full range of electronics to complement our load cells. By offering both the load cell and the electronics we can ensure that all of the components in your measurement chain are designed to meet your specific needs. “UTV” – Utility, Technology and Value are our guiding principles. Our recommendations are framed by these principles. Whether you are designing a simple stand-alone weigh station; a multi staged batch process; or a high speed, in motion check weighing system; Group Four has the load cells and electronics to optimize the performance.

With a wide variety of electronics solutions Group Four can optimize a solution to best fit your application needs.

  • Display vs no display
  • High Speed signal processing
  • High Resolution performance
  • Communication Protocols like Modbus, Profibus, DeviceNet, EtherNet, Serial (RS422/485, RS232), Analog (4-20mA, 0-10 V)
  • Relay Control

Application in Focus

When DuPont Chemical came to Group Four they were not quite sure what they were looking for. We took the time to listen to them, understand their needs and recommend a solution. Although the load cells required to fit in the frame were fairly commonplace, the resolution and speed of the signal processing required, were not. The DAD141.1 satisfied their atypical filtering needs while processing the signal at 24 bit. The result…no more machine breakdowns due to broken fibers…saving DuPont millions of dollars in down time.
