what is load cell?

load cell

A load cell is a force transducer. It converts a force such as tension, compression, pressure, or torque into an electrical signal that can be measured and standardized. As the force applied to the load cell increases, the electrical signal changes proportionally. The most common types of load cell used are strain gauges, pneumatic, and hydraulic.

There are several types of strain gauge load cells:

Single Point load cells; used in small to medium platform scales with platform sizes of 200x200mm up to 1200×1200 mm.
Planar Beam load cells; used in low profile solutions where space is limited, like medical scales and retail scales.
Bending Beam load cells; used in pallet, platform and small hopper scales.
Shear Beam load cells; used in low profile scale and process applications, available in capacities from 100kg up to 50t.
Dual Shear Beam load cells; used in truck scales, tank and hopper applications.
S-type load cells; used in tension applications where you will find static and dynamic loads.
Compression load cells; used in truck scales, large platform scales, weighbridges and hopper scales.
Ring Torsion load cells; used in high accuracy hoppers, silo’s, platforms and pallet scales.
Spoke Type load cells; used in low profile, high precision application. High forces varying from 1t-500t.
Onboard load cells; used for onboard weighing systems on trucks, tractors and other vehicles.
Loadpins; used in applications for measuring dynamic, static or hoisting forces.
Weighpads; portable weighpads for the weighing of cars and the measure the center of gravity of planes.
Specials; all kind of special sensors.
