When selecting a measurement solution, an analog full-bridge sensor, such as a load cell, torque sensor or pressure sensor, is one piece of the puzzle. A complete solution also requires an analog-to-digital signal converter to enable data-logging and/or system automation. This is where a standalone DAQ or PLC with analog inputs comes into play. But navigating specifications and terminology can be confusing. Typically questions are asked about what hardware a client needs to interface with their existing or newly purchased system. And these are the key features to look for.
