The PTA Adapter user-configurable adapter and software connects common strain gage-based load cells, force sensors, and torque sensors to the Models 3i, 5i and 7i indicators.
Sensor capacity and resolutions may be programmed via an included software utility, which includes a library of common force capacities from 0.12 to 750,000 lbF (0.5 N to 4,000 kN), and torque capacities from 10 ozFin to 40,000 lbFft (7 Ncm to 57,000 Nm). An identification number may be programmed, which is displayed upon indicator power-up or the indicator’s Information screen.
Through Plug & Test technology, all configuration and calibration information is saved within the adapter. This flexibility allows for interchangeability between multiple sensors with the 3i,5 and 7i indicators.
