Manufacturing loadcells since 1972
ICA6H Loadcell Amplifier
This miniature loadcell amplifier is designed for use with strain gauge loadcells. It has a bi-polar ±10V output for use with bi-directional loadcells even though it is powered from a uni-polar supply.
The amplifier can be mounted in an in-line stainless steel pod sealed to IP67 or it can be mounted inside some loadcells. The pod is shown below, it has the advantage of easy access to the calibration trimmers. If you require the amplifier to be mounted in a loadcell please consult our engineering department.
This amplifier can be used with any of our loadcells. Details of our loadcell families can be found in the Product Guide.

If the ICA6H does not have all the functions you require the SGA Loadcell Amplifier may be more suitable. An SGA data-sheet is available.
The amplifier uses four core screened cable with two cores used for the power supply and two cores for the amplifier output. Detailed connection information is supplied with each loadcell. Wire colours are dependant upon the type of cable used with the loadcell.
There are three alternatives depending upon the loadcell that is to be used with the ICA6H:
NB Loadcells for use with the ICA6H normally require a bridge resistance of at least 1000Ω.
This instrumentation product complies with the requirements of the European EMC directive.
