I want to buy the smallest datalogger possible for a single load cell weight lysimeter. The thing is, I read on the product overview that it has half bridge capability. On the product compatibility it states that it does not perform differential measurments for strain measurements.
The load cell is a 4 wire full bridge sensor with a shield wire.
Do I need to purchase a CR1000 to get differential capabilities? Will the CR206x work for my load cell?
Thank you very much.
Unless the load cell has some signal conditioning in it to give an amplified single ended output you should be considering the CR800 series as the lowest price option I am afraid.
