Issue Details

I am setting up some load cells in FlexLogger. Everything works fine with a small load cell, but when I switch to a bigger one I get a message that the load exceeds the maximum value and it is automatically changed to a lower value.

What can I do about this?

Solution

Make sure you are setting up the custom scales in accordance with the specifications for your load cell. For example, a specific load cell has a sensitivity of 1.151 mV/V and 12 T load rating. The correct configuration for that load cell is shown in the screenshot below.

Please note that this screenshot is taken from NI MAX and not FlexLogger. However, the required settings will be the same.
