I'm trying to use the example
load_cell_null_off_shuntcal.VI with a scale of full-bridge (Honeywell
Model 31, not amplified). I'm using LabView 8.6, cDAQ-9172 and NI9237. The
load cell is connected to the pins 2,3,6 and 7.

Entries for the front side of the VI
are: excitation10V internal; mV/V 2.1492 (calibration sheet); weight max 10
lbs; resistance bridge 350 ohms (Honeywell specifications); 9237 shunt internal
100 kohm resistance; map of shunt R4 (default setting). I chose
"Do not offset null" and "shunt cal.

This is the error I get:

AI. Bridge.ShuntCal.GainAdjust

You asked:-61.980405e3

Valid values begin with: 500.0e - 3

Valid values ending with: 1.500000

If the "shunt cal.
green button is not selected, there is no error. I understand that the Gain
Change value should be approximately 1, whereas I get is much larger. The Subvi DAQmx PerformShuntCalibration
.VI (bridge) contains a "Call library function node" which I did not
find out how interrogate.

Someone else has experience
with this error? Do you have any advice on:

How to 'see' the calculations being
carried out inside the "call library function node"?

What the correct shunt element
a full-bridge load cell location is? (although changing this location only)
does not eliminate the error, I can't find this info).

What can I do wrong with
my entries to cause this error?

Thank you


Hi Claire,

You must physically connect the SC of arm of the bridge terminals (normally R3). The terminal is not provided for the connection of external resistors.

See the example

    Hello, YTC,.

    The problem is most likely in your external connections of the NI 9237 and the load cell.  As mentioned in NI 9237 Operating Instructions and specifications, page 9, SC + SC - pins must be connected to the terminals of the resistance specified in the .vi of Shunt calibration perform DAQmx (bridge) (in the case of a full bridge, it would be R3).

    Let me know if you still have problems with your calibration.

  • With the help of external excitation of load cell 9219

    I want to use 9219 to assess the load cells.

    Internal excitement for 9219 is not sufficient for my application, this device can be used with an external excitation source?

    If Yes is it as simple as cross the bridge of load cell using the external voltage and the output of the bridge on the 9219?

    Power max would be approximately 20 mV.

    Then the 9237 is probably your best choice. For this voltage, you will need to use an external source.

  • Configure a load cell connected to multifunction DAQ

    I'm trying to connect a LCDH Omega 10 K scale by a module of constraint Dataforth SCM5B38-37 then AI0 gauge on a USB-6251 multifunction data acquisition.

    In addition to the load cell, the application will use a pressure sensor with a strain gauge bridge module plugged into AI1 to read the pressure of hydrulic.  The pressure transducer using a measure of the force will be calculated and compared with the reading of load cell.

    Currently, the USB-6251 box is configured to read analog voltage on AI0.  The scale is then performed using linear Fit.VI.

    Review the example Bridge - entry continues shows some additional controls may increase the accuracy of the reading.

    Unfortunately trying to use the DAQ Assistant only added to my confusion of the best practice in the acquisition of a signal from a load cell.


    Here are some of the questions I have...

    What is the best practice implement a load cell using a full bridge strain gauge conditioning module labview?

    What is shunt calibration?  Is this similar to the USB-9237 DAQ modules-specific?

    How do you know if your sensor is set up like a full bridge, half bridge, etc, the document load cell does not it?

    You can use the VI delete DAQmx perform bridge?


    I don't know, I understand all the information of the map calibration either.

    I was looking into your question and found a few links that might help you configure your system. The first is a white paper that discusses some of the basic concepts of the gauges of constraint and their use with LabVIEW, shunt calibration and also covers some of the resistance values you see:


    As you can see in this article, we have some specific hardware, built for the kind of measures you take. Because these devices are manufactured specifically for this application, they would provide better and more reliable results. That being said, you can configure your system with your USB-6521, it might not be as accurate as one of these systems. To set up your measurement system, rather than defining the analog input as a measure of deformation, you want to use the voltage custom with the option of excitement. This article treats this yet:


    We get you your data in the form of Volts/Volts (this document addresses more info on bridge probe scaling: http://zone.ni.com/reference/en-XX/help/370466W-01/measfunds/bridgescaling/), , but you should make sure you standardize this value to the excitement. Devices such as the NI 9237 provide the voltage and can take this known value in to account within the program, but you may need to do this manually for your application. Here is additional information on the NI 9237 and how it is configured to read information from strain gauge:


    Regarding the configuration of unit load and the information, you can try to contact the manufacturer for more information!

  • Rapid decline in full load capacity


    I recently bought a new macbook pro 15' and since then, I have read several articles on how to preserve the battery in my macbook. Therefore, I check regularly the full load capacity (perhaps every day...), but yesterday, something strange happened. Full charge capacity was most of the time at approximately 8500 mAh, but yesterday when I checked, it had fallen to 7700 mAh. I am aware that the full load capacity decreases with time, but 800 mAh for one day is certainly something not typical. In general, I charge when it is between 20-40% until it reaches 100%. I did not the little ordinary things on it in order to damage the bad battery. I just read a book and disabled the Wi - Fi in order to preserve the battery life. At one point, I noticed under the battery 'remaining 18 hours', but it's normal since I used it in low light to read a book without a free Wi - Fi connection. I think that the battery may have lost its calibration, so I re - year (wait for the macbook to stop, then wait for 3 to 5 hours and charge up to 100%). Do you have any other suggestions what could be the problem and how to solve?

    P.S. The battery has 37 cycles count.

    Your MBP battery needs to be calibrated.  This will put a useless cycle on this issue.

    Try a SMC reset:


    If there is no change, make an appointment with an Apple store genius bar, the assessment will be FREE.


  • How can I convert a 3 mV/V to a load cell signal to something I can read using a field point AIO-600?

    I use an external powere supply 12V to supply voltage to the load cell, and I'm reading data using AIO-600. There is a separate module that can do this, but is it possible to do it with the current material?


    The lowest input for the AIO-600 range is 0 - 6V.  This means that you will have a resolution of 12 bits (11.3 effective) broadcast more than 6 volts.  I guess that your full scale signal max will be 36mV.  Without amplification, you will not have a very high quality signal.  It would be the best bet to amplify your output signal mV as close to the load as possible cell and then connect this signal amplified to your AIO-600.

  • calibration of the load cell

    I have a new 5 lb load cell, I want to replace the old one with.  The former load cell had previously been calibrated to the program and was located in the drop down menu, as well as several other cells.  So far all I've done is went to edit items in the menu properties ring and add in the name of load cell - I did in all references to the program.  There are several references to the cell of support throughout the program, but most is a case of event "loadcell scale" that passes across the cell to the variable global-loadcell scale and a cell nationally for initialization.  I have attached a manual for the program I work with (the cell for initialization is not displayed).    I have never calibrated a scale before and do not know the appropriate measures, so any advice will be appreciated.  I have to do something to the MAX?

    as a side question what are and when do you use the stringsand values of the nodes property.

    Thank you


    Here are two links about calibration with our software. It is usually done through MAX and step by step instructions can be found in the links.



    As to when to use property nodes, they are used whenever you want to programmatically set some properties or attributes. For example, if you want to programmatically change the color of the text in a control that is based on what is displayed or channel indicator or resize the control or the indicator.

    Check with support from the manufacturer of their books online and the drivers and their forums system

    Here are some tips to help and troubleshoot battery issues.

    Old battery? Unplug the power to the computer - remove the battery and clean the contacts with a pencil
    eraser (do not use this, if your battery is fine slots - just clean up the edges of the knife which fit in)
    them and be careful). Batteries are old, or it could be a problem with the computer.

    New Lithium-Ion type battery usually last longer if you do not unload then less than 30%

  • I often use my iPad when it is plugged in, after full load. Can thus damage the battery?

    Leaving the iPad on the charger when it is fully recharged bypass the battery and that the iPad runs on an external source as most of the laptop? Or is the battery constantly being drained and charged at the same time?

    I often play with my iPad 2 plugged Air (often after full load because I think the iPad is directly using the external power source) and I don't know if that night to the iPad or not.

    No, there is no harm in using the iPad during the charge or leave fixed after the battery has reached 100%.

  • Load cell amplifier signals

    Hi all

    I am building an app to read a signal in a cell in charge of RS & amplifier using a USB6210 data acquisition card. I ' v tried SE & Diff connections, and I see a change in signal when I apply a load, but it is not quite what I expected (see attached screenshots of MAX).

    I am providing an external 5V to the amplifier, so no load can expect approximately 3V from the amp - it works OK. With a load applied, I expected to see a constant voltage drop, however I seem to have become unstable, with decrease in voltage.

    No idea why this is happening, any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you

  • load cell


    I use NI 9219 with model Honeywell scale 11. The problem is that the voltage for 9219 is 2, 7V while the calibrated for the load cell voltage is 5V. When I connect the two device, I always get the release of Labview, but how can I calibrate the sensor?

    Load cells operate on a principle of millivolts per Volt.  You should not need to calibrate the load cell just because you use a different voltage.  You just need to use the value of mV/V provided with certificate of calibration of the load cell in the setup of the scale of the load cell chain.

  • Load cell, compatibility linear actuator

    I am putting together a new test configuration that will operate a linear actuator, in charge of sampling. Data will be graphically represented on a graph of load vs displacement. I am new to Data Acquisition, so I just wanted to run my installation by a person who has a little more experience before you start spending money.

    Motor and controller are ZAGARELLA. The engine is a NEMA size 23, 60mm travel (model #NA23C60), the force of 175 lbs; controller is a phase 2, up to 2. 5A by the motor controller step-by-step phase (Model #T - MCA). Engine connects to the controller with a Minidin 8. Data cable to the controller is a controller's connector Minidin 6.

    Load cell is a cell of weighing Subminiature Honeywell Model 11 with a capacity of 100 lbs (range BR code). I also use a Honeywell model UV-10 online amplifier to convert the millivolt signal ±10Vdc signal.

    Input module is a NI 9219, 4 channels, with connector 6-pos or blocks.

    Output module is a NI 9265, 4 channels, with connector 10-pos or blocks.

    My question is, what is the best way to connect to the motor controller for input/output modules? Also, same question for the Load Cell/amplifier and the input module. My setup looks, as it will work. I'm off little blind here and would be greatly HERE can anyone shed any light. Thanks in advance.

    Jeremy robots

    Hi Jeremy,.

    I'm not too familiar with the ZAGARELLA products but you were seeking to use the modules OR to send commands to the controller or you were looking to them for use as drive for the engine? Whatever it is, these modules will not be able to do it either. A quick search on google shows that the motor controller communicates via serial and or one of the modules that you have listed has a connector series. If you plan put these modules in a cRIO, you could use a NI 987 x to communicate through series.

    If you thought using modules OR as a drive for the engine, it is not possible either. You say your Motors require 2. 5, but most NI 9265 will be able to output is 20 m.

    In regard to the load cell, it seems you're going to need power external amplifier, which make no incremental signal you're trying to read. 9219 read only of differential signals, then you probably want to consider using a NI 920 x or a 9221. To connect the signal of the amplifier to one of these modules, the signal wire should go to one of the channels I and the Earth to the Terminal COM.

    I'm not sure what you mean but I think you want to restore the computer to factory settings, this is the way it was when you bought it. You have to press an Fkey at startup, F9, F10, F11, or F12 I can't remember which and make a full or destructive reinstall.
