Multi-Scale Card Connections when powering Load Cells using an External Power Supply

Note: GSE sense jumpers must be set to "EXTERNAL". If load cell sense leads are not available, (+) sense and (-) sense connections should be made to the (+) 5 and (-) 5 VDC of the power supply respectively.

Calex Manufacturing Company, Inc (800-542-3355) is one possible source for a compatible Dual Power Supply. Website: http://www.calex.com

The Calex part number is: 2.5.750-115 (Dual Output @ +/- 5 VDC, 750mA and 115VAC input).

Refer to attachement for connection diagram.
