The more gauges inside the load cell, the more sensitive the cell is in recording and monitoring variance in measurement. When calculating the potential capacity of a load cell, manufacturers consider: the maximum force value, the dynamics of the system (i.e. frequency response), the effect that placing the transducer in the force path will have and the maximum extraneous loads that the load cell will handle.
Advantages of Load CellsOne of the many advantages of load cells is their high level of accuracy. With reading accuracies within 0.25%, load cells, sensors and gauges provide accurate mass, weight and pressure measurement of loads both very small and very large, up to several thousand tons. Another
Load Cell is a device that converts force into electrical signal. Strain gage based load cell is made of a specially engineered mechanical component called as an element.
Load cell is a sensor or a transducer that converts a load or force acting on it into an electronic signal. This electronic signal can be a voltage change, current change or frequency change depending on the type of load cell and circuitry used.
