Wireless Weight Measurement Kit


Loadstar Sensors Inc. of Mountain View has launched a wireless weight measurement kit that enables product designers and end users to easily build an accurate and reliable weight measurement system. The kit contains four of Loadstar’s patent-protected CS Series capacitive sensors (choice of either 50lb. or 100lb. capacity), one DS-2100 WiFi display and summing device with wireless connection capability, LoadVUE software for simplifying measurement and calibration tasks using a PC, as well as all the data cables (four MX-500 data cables) and a 9V power adapter to connect and power the system. All the components of the kit are designed to work seamlessly with each other, making the creation of a weight measurement system effortless.


The components of the weight measurement kit provide several key features that make it easy for users to build an accurate and reliable load measurement system:


CS-Series Sensors

  • Integrated electronics require no additional signal conditioner. This helps cut down the number of components required to put together a weight measurement system.

  • Compact and rugged stainless steel packaging makes it possible to build devices that can withstand rough handling.

  • Small size and threaded mounting holes provided on the top and bottom of the sensors, makes it possible to mount them conveniently and fit them into tight spaces.

  • Low power consumption (only 10mW) makes them suitable for use with batteries, if desired.

DS-2100 WiFi display

  • Accepts input from up to four CS-Series load sensors and automatically sum loads from all connected sensors. No separate summing box is required.

  • Displays calibrated loads in pounds in increments of 0.1 lb up to 999.9 lbs. on a bright red LED display.

  • Can connect wirelessly to a PC using 802.11b WiFi interface. This makes it possible for users to calibrate the weight measurement system as well as log readings on the PC without any connecting wires.

LoadVUE software

  • Connects wirelessly with the DS-2100 WiFi device to enable users to perform calibration on up to four attached sensors from a PC, display individual and total loads on screen, and log to a data file.

Wireless Weight Measurement Kit


“The Wireless Weight Measurement Kit is a one of a kind, easy-to-use solution for weight and load measurements,” says Div Harish, Co-founder & CEO of Loadstar Sensors Inc. “Users don’t have to struggle to put together a large number of disparate components. Just connect the sensors to the display and the power adapter provided in the kit and you are ready to start taking measurements. Place a plate on the sensors and you have a scale !”
