20kG, 50kG, 100kG  Load Cell - Your choice of one. 

SuperDAQ03 12 bit Four Channel Data Acquistion Module with Windows software, USB cable, and nifty screwdriver

Complete instructions

The only thing you supply is two 9 V batteries, data cable,and a Windows compatible computer system. Optional Data Cable Instrument cable is available separately.

Because load cells are more accurate over a specific range of force we recommend getting the lowest and highest force load cell anticipated. For example, bench testing the DAQ system with the 20 kG load cell is very easy. Hand pressure on the cell registers easily. If you anticipate having a 400 kG load then you will also want a 500 kG load cell.

SuperDAQ03 Highlights:

The SuperDAQ03 12 bit Four Channel Data Acquistion Module is a four-channel data acquisition module designed to familiarize you with WinDaq software. It provides 10-bit measurement accuracy, a ±10V analog measurement range, up to 240 samples/second throughput, and four analog input channels. It features a USB port interface, making installation a snap. It also features two digital inputs that can be used for remote start/stop and remote event marker control withWinDaq/Lite software.

Our SuperDAQ03 provides a taste of the exceptional power and speed possible with WinDaq software. A free CD demonstrates WinDaq Waveform Browser, our playback and analysis software (just call and ask), but to get a hands-on illustration of the data recording and display capabilities of WinDaq/Lite, you need the SuperDAQ03. When connected to your PCs USB port, the SuperDAQ03 allows you to record, display, and analyze data using your own signals.

The SuperDAQ03 consists of a portable, four-channel, 11/4 x 41/4 inch A/D module that can be directly connected to the serial port of any PC. The module features four, single-ended, bipolar analog inputs (maximum measurement range ±10 volts) and two digital input ports for remote stop/start or remote event marker control. It also features an onboard waveform generator that can be used as a quick, convenient input signal.

The kit ships with WinDaq/Lite recording software and WinDaq Waveform Browser playback and analysis software. Data acquisition rates up to 240 samples per second are supported for Windows 95, 98, NT, ME, 2000, and XP. Self-Powered Advantage The SuperDAQ03 derives its power directly from the USB port to which it is connected, no batteries to replace or external power supplies to connect.

WINDAQ Software Included: The SuperDAQ03 includes WINDAQ/Lite recording software and WINDAQ Waveform Browser playback.

Load Cell Highlights:

The package includes a force single point shear beam load cell. Mount one end of the load cell in a fixture of your choice and apply force to the other end. As the load cell bends under force the signal through the bridge changes in a way that can be sensed by electronics.

Single Channel Amplifier Highlights:

A simple yet sophisticated amplifier for millivolt load cells and pressure transducers.

Perfect for 2 and 3 mV/V load cells and transducers


  • Precision design and quality construction.
  • Versatile and completely adjustable, customize your gain, balance, and offset to your specific needs.
  • High Quality Euro style screw terminals for input, output, and power.
  • Excellent front end for popular data acquisition (DAQ) modules such as Dataq and many others.
  • Bipolar output for full +/- 10 volt swing to input of DAQ module resulting in maximum DAQ resolution.
  • Eliminates need to modify DAQ for single ended or half resolution operation. +/- 9 volt to +/- 12 volt DC power.
  • Low power consumption, suitable for short term battery operation, 20 to 30 mA typical.
  • Configurable for full bridge or half bridge operation, half bridge operation includes a zero balance adjustment.
  • Half bridge configuration is handy for basic “home brew” two element load cells and for connection to low cost, three wire bathroom scale cantilever mounted strain gauges.
  • Stable when driving high capacitance long coaxial or shielded output cable. Internal precision 5 volt reference source for driving half or full bridge load cells and pressure transducers.
  • Configurable for popular 100 millivolt, 4 wire pressure transducers.
  • 500 Hz bandwidth typical for load cells and pressure transducers.
  • Output noise of 1.3 mV rms typical for load cell configuration.
  • Output short circuit protected.
