249171-0050: 0 to 2.5mV/V stepped load at 0.5mV/V intervals, with DB9 connector.
249171-0051: 0 to 2.0mV/V stepped load with 0.5mV/V intervals plus variable 0 to 3.0mV/V load, with DB9 connector.

How to use the 0050
The 0050 can be used for diagnostic purposes.
1. Plug the 0050 directly into the indicator (load cell port). The 0050 is fitted with a DB9 male connector, wired for direct connection to an indicator.
2. When connected to a calibrated indicator, the reading for each of the stepped settings represents a control value for this specific configuration. At any time the 0050 can be reconnected to the same indicator and setup, to reproduce these values.

How to use the 0051
The 0051 can be used for diagnostic and pre-installation temporary calibration purposes.
1. Plug the 0051 directly into the indicator (load cell port). The 0051 is fitted with a DB9 male connector, wired for direct connection to an indicator.
2. The simulated variable load output is controlled by the two bottom potentiometers, when the stepped switch is set accordingly. The coarse (left) and fine (right) knobs offer from below 0mV/V to above 3.0mV/V output, with the fine setting able to adjust a factor of ~1/100 of this coarse range. This allows the user to simulate an increasing/decreasing load to setup an intial pre-calibration for indicators, before being used in a field installation.
