This intelligent self contained loadmeter is designed for use with strain gauge loadcells.

**This is now obsolete and that we recommend the INT4-L as a good alternative**

Its wide range of functions and simple operation make the ADW15 ideal for use in industrial weighing applications. Options include set points, peak hold, serial communications and analogue outputs.

All set up functions are via the weather sealed keypad using a simple menu system. This compact, self contained loadcell instrument is available with a wide range of options including low voltage dc supply, whilst two way data communication allows for remote control of functions.

Easy to program and use and able to power up to 4 x 350Ω loadcells, this loadmeter is used throughout industry in engineering applications with consistent and reliable results.

If a bi-directional loadcell is used with any of the analogue output options the only way to scale the amplifier is to set the mid-point of the analogue output equal to zero load.

If the standard version of this loadmeter is too slow for your application a special option is available with a 100 readings per second analogue to digital conversion rate.

If the ADW15 is supplied with a loadcell it will normally be calibrated to read the loadcell output in the same force units as the loadcell calibration. A traceable system certificate will be supplied for the loadmeter and loadcell combination.

Order Codes



Specify the options from the table below in the following order ADW15-B-C-D-E-F. Insert a 0 where an option is not required. If more than two set points are required the code becomes ADW-SP16-B-C-D-E-F. An option is only available if there is a * in the appropriate model column.

ADW15 & ADW-SP16

Position: B Option: A03 - Analogue output 4-20mA loop resistance <1k0

ADW15 & ADW-SP16

Position: B Option: V04 - Analogue output 0-10V load resistance >500Ω

ADW15 & ADW-SP16

Position: C Option: COM1 - RS232 / RS485 serial communications


Position: D Option: R03 - 2 set points


Position: D Option: REM4 - 4 set points


Position: D Option: REM8 - 8 set points


Position: D Option: REMPSU - Power supply for set point modules

ADW15 & ADW-SP16

Position: E Option: W110 - 115Vac

ADW15 & ADW-SP16

Position: E Option: W240 - 230Vac


Position: E Option: W12/24 - 12 to 24Vdc (range 9 to 32V)

ADW15 & ADW-SP16

Position: F Option: P/G - Panel mounting

ADW15 & ADW-SP16

Position: F Option: D - DIN rail mounting


Each set point has a SPCO relay contact rated at 5A 240Vac, resistive load. The REM options use external DIN rail mounted modules. A REMPSU is required for 8 or more set points. The maximum number of set points available with the ADW-SP16 is 16.

Supplied with an operators manual giving full details of the programmable parameters. The parameters are stored in non-volatile memory. When the ADW15 is purchased with a loadcell the loadmeter will be calibrated with appropriate scaling for use with the loadcell.

This product complies with the requirements of the European EMC directive.
