Once you’ve connected your load cell and PC/Laptop/Tablet*, the free software will display live readings that can also be logged to a CSV file (max 24 load cells). The logged data can then be loaded into a spreadsheet, like Excel, to produce graphical reports etc. If you want to try the free software now, you can download and install the single-channel version, as it has a “Demo” mode. The demo mode lets you see all the available settings without having to have a load cell connected. Also, if your device is connected to your network you can access any logged data from other PC’s on the network.
More advanced users/programmers can take advantage of the DLL driver and create their own windows applications (Driver file comes with example source code for Visual Net and C programs). The modules can also be set up to produce a constant stream of ASCII values which is handy for interfacing with other terminal type programs/equipment.
