MultiAxis Load Cell | Measurex


The requirement of measuring force in multi-directions is increasing year by year in many industries. For this range of applications, normal load cells sense along with a single axis and generally need a large footprint. In contrast, a multi-axis sensor can be smaller, and occupy a smaller space envelope than multiple single-axis sensors. Moreover, its connection scheme can be simpler as well. These factors tend to increase measurement accuracy and reduce mounting and operation costs. 3D load cells can sense 2 or 3 axis. Typical multi-axis load cell applications are found in the offshore industry, industrial test benches and crash testing. 


A 3 axis force sensor can measure the force applied to 3 perpendicular axes of X, Y, and Z. Sensor orientation places the X and Y axes as the horizontal midplane of the load cell body, with the Z axis along the sensor’s central axis. Depending on the application and the range of the force applied, the outputs are in units of 1mV/V and 1.5mV/V. This electrical output indicates the sensor excitation at the rated load
