751 SBox



All-in-One Strain Measurement over USB

Windmill are pleased to announce their new 751 SBox. This lets your PC monitor four strain gauges. It connects to the PC over a USB cable and comes with the Windmill data acquisition and control software suite.

The SBox has been designed to be really easy to set up. You can quickly connect or disconnect your strain gauges. Putting everything in just one box means that it is ideal for mobile applications or for moving from place to place.

When the Windmill software takes a reading from a strain gauge bridge, it automatically monitors excitation voltage and calculates the measurement in microstrain. This eliminates errors due to changes in excitation voltage. You can also set a zero reference level and monitor changes relative to that level. An integrating analogue-to-digital converter reduces noise and the system automatically recalibrates itself.

The 751 SBox accepts four easily-connected bridges in quarter or half bridge configuration.

The modular Windmill software offers data logging, charting, alarm indication and output control. Data can also be exported in real-time to other applications like Excel.

The 751 SBox costs 930 GBP (1375 Euros or 1815 USD). For more information either contact Windmill Software, or see the USB data acquisition comparison page and Strain Monitoring and Control page on our catalogue site.
