load cells

Load cell: is a measured force load quantity converter, which covert the load acting upon them into an analogue or digital electronic signal. This measurement conversion makes use of a spring element which distorts under the influence of the load been measured and this distortion is detected and captured with the aid of a strain gauge.

Load Cells: are electronic weight sensors or transducers which purpose is to convert the weight applied to an electrical signal and transmit it to weight indicator or to the PC.

The load cell strain gauge: is an element , usually in the form of a looped electrical resistor in the shape of a strip, when incorporated into a transducer it is mounted on flexible backing material. When a load force , such a weigh load force, is exerted on the flexible backing material in contact with the load cell strain gauge; the resulting distortion of the backing material creates a proportional change in the electrical resistance of the strain gauge,. With the range of elasticity, the size of the mechanical distortion remains proportional to the applied mechanical force distortion into the load cells, so, the change of the resistance again in the load cell strain gauge is and electronic measurable proportion to the input load cell force quantity applied.

The loading of a load cell: refer  to the mass “m” that acts on the load cell in its measurement direction  (Load E(à 2)), as a dependent weigh load cell force taking into account the local acceleration due to gravity and its related variables.

Load cell types:  The load cell shape and size is determined by the type of the spring element use. The correct selection of the spring element and load cells mounting components depends among on the following factors as, the direction the load force is applied as compression or tension, the maximum load cell force capacity applied, as well  as the service load and the breaking load. The required measurement accuracy  and configuration requirements.

Load cell applications: Special attention must be paid to the load cells application on the points of the load cell; that is to said not only the the points of contact between a load cell and the load cell is intended to weigh, but also those between a load cell and its bearing surface. Load cells sensors should be use in the prescribed direction of loading only. The direction of loading is indicated by an arrow in many load cells. Lateral forces and bending torsional moments must be avoided as far as possible.
