Model 4215 Smart Strain Gauge Indicator – Powerful Capabilities,
Affordable Price



Electro Standards Laboratories, Cranston, RI, introduces the Model 4215 Smart Load Cell Indicator. The Model 4215 is an intelligent microprocessor-based instrument designed for the measurement and control of strain gage transducer-based systems. It combines force channels, encoder position channels, print capabilities, and RS232/485 serial communications into a versatile platform that delivers the most powerful and affordable instrumentation in its class.


The Model 4215 strain gauge indicator is compatible with most tensile testers, load cells, extensometers, torque transducers, pressure sensors and position encoders. Whether upgrading an existing system or implementing a new one, the Model 4215 delivers the accuracy, reliability, and repeatability needed to meet the most demanding applications.


Standard features include:

  • Fully Bipolar Range +/- 999,999 display

  • 24-bit resolution

  • Nonlinearity 0.0005 %

  • 2-line X 20-character vacuum fluorescent display

  • TEDS-Tag® Auto Load Cell Identification

  • User input text display on second line of display

  • Auto setup for 25 load cells

  • Front panel shunt calibration with 2 selectable resistors

  • Functions include: peak / valley / hold / tracking / peak reset

  • Quad limits output: independent, isolated solid state relays, controls AC or DC signals

  • Six user-selectable filter

  • Tri-state limit display: on, off, disabled

  • Automatic display unit conversation: Lb, Kg, N, Psi, Mpa, Klb, Kn, t

  • D/A output: +/-10 V standard; +/-5 V, 0-5 V, 0-10 V standard per request

  • Direct analog amplifier output

  • RS-232/RS422, RS485 communication standard

  • Full operation and calibration via RS232

  • 5-point linearization

  • Quadrature encoder channel for position and rate readout

  • Single channel unit has two-line operation for simultaneous display of 2 quantities

Menu buttons have alternate functions for setup menus. Programmed operations include peak hold and tracking, programmable math and function channels, programmable limits, the variety of engineering units, position and velocity indication, and user-parameter inputs along with menu scrolling and auto zero.


The Model 4215 is dataView software ready for graphical user interface and connection to a PC. The dataView software features include: full function point-and-click graphical user interface; plug and play operation, full speed data acquisition and plotting; data export into spread sheets; store and recall data files; create and retrieve configuration files; and report generation.


The Model 4215 is available in single and dual channel versions. For information on load cell indicators and digital signal conditioning products, contact Electro Standards Laboratories:
