The specially developed LMU 212 Load Monitoring Unit completes Magtrol's range of "Load-Force-Weight" products. The device includes an amplifier for strain gauge bridges intended for load measurement. The device includes strain gauge bridge input and a voltage input to allow summation of the two signals when needed. The unit can be supplied at 115 V AC/ 230 V AC or at 20, 32 V DC based on customer's choice. LMU 212 is designed to provide 2 relay outputs, 1 current output and 1 voltage output.
The unit contains 2 alarms setting outputs that are particularly suitable for load / overload survey on cranes and other lifting devices. A built-in self-test system enables detection of any short circuits or signal line failures for use in security systems. The customer can use the integrated test function (B.I.T.E.) to simulate a fictitious load.
