MODEL SSI

The SSI is a Plug & Play Smart TEDS IEEE 1451.4 compliant portable handheld Load Cell Indicator. Just plug in a TEDS compatible Load Cell or Torque Sensor and the SSI will automatically self-calibrate. When used with a non-TEDS Load Cell or Torque Sensor, the SSI can be set up by simple front panel push buttons. The SSI can be scaled to a full 5 digit display from 0 to 99,999 counts to read directly in engineering units such as grams, ounces, pounds, inch pounds, etc. The SSI also has a Units key for automatic conversion of readings for load, torque and pressure. The SSI has an ultra-fast signal-sampling rate of 15,360 samples/second for true peak and/or valley testing capability. Auto-tare allows the meter to be set to zero for any input signal level. The SSI also features a USB port for data logging to a PC. You can also log data to the SSI’s internal memory storing up to 16,000 time and date stamped readings. The SSI also features 2 built-in solid-state alarm relays with LED and audible indicators. The SSI will operate up to 65 hours on a single charge or use the included battery charger for applications where the SSI is mounted permanently. Read additional article...

  • CE Approved Approved
  • "Plug and Play" operation with automatic scaling at power-up with TEDS IEEE 1451.4 compliant load cells.
  • Menu-driven scaling of non-TEDS-compliant load cells via keypad with a choice of two scaling methods: manually entered coordinates of two points, or reading coordinates of two points using input signals.
  • PC-based scaling of non-TEDS-compliant load cells using Instrument Setup software, again with a choice of two scaling methods.
  • Keypad selectable units of measure for load, torque or pressure, with automatic conversion of readings between units.
  • Lockout feature to simplify meter operations and prevent inadvertent changes.
  • Ultra-fast signal sampling rate of 15,360 samples/second (when set for 60 Hz noise rejection) or 12,800 samples/second (when set for 50 Hz noise rejection).
  • Normal conversion rate of 60/second (when set for 60 Hz noise rejection) or 50/second (when set for 50 Hz noise rejection), with digital averaging of every 256 samples. Allows display of filtered or unfiltered readings, capture of Peak, First Peak or Valley.
  • Selectable Fast conversion rates up to 7,680/second (when set for 60 Hz noise rejection) or 6,400/second (when set for 50 Hz noise rejection). Always unfiltered, allows capture of Peak or First Peak.
  • Display update rate at 3.75/second (when set for 60 Hz noise rejection) or 3.125/second (when set for 50 Hz noise rejection). Display batch averages of 16 conversions or moving averages of conversions.
  • USB port for direct connection to a PC at baud rates from 300/second to 38.4k/ second.
  • Data logging to internal memory of up to 16,000 time and date stamped displayed readings at up to 60 or 50 captures/second. Data logging may be single or continuous.
  • Selectable memory protection to prevent overwriting previously stored data.
  • Recall of internally stored readings to the meter display, a PC, or a printer with a USB interface. Recall may be single or continuous (standard capability).
  • Recall of last meter calibration date.
  • Data logging of time and date stamped values in real time via USB to a PC or printer. The values may be the current reading, Peak, Valley, or any combination thereof.
  • Optional PC Data Logging Software, P/N SSI-DLS. Collects real-time or stored data via USB. Lists, plots or stores meter data in PC memory.
  • Two built-in, solid state alarm relays, with LED and audible indications. Selectable relay latching or non-latching, setpoint hysteresis or band deviation modes.
  • Two control inputs assignable to Meter Reset, Peak & Valley Reset, Peak & Valley Display, Tare, Tare Reset, and Log Trigger.
  • Built-in load cell excitation voltage.
  • Powered by a rechargeable 2400 mAh lithium-ion battery for up to 65 hours of operation. Battery charge monitor circuit with bar graph and audible indications.
  • Selectable automatic meter shutoff after interval of inactivity (15, 30 or 60 minutes).
  • Wall plug type, UL-rated AC adapter / battery charger unit with removable A-B USB cable.
