Using transducers called load cells, mechanical force or weight can be changed into an electrical signal. They are commonly used in industrial applications to measure and monitor loads or forces exerted on structures or equipment.
Load cells work on the principle of strain gauge technology. They typically consist of a metal element, usually called a strain gauge, which deforms when subjected to a force. This deformation causes a change in electrical resistance, which is then measured and converted into a corresponding electrical signal proportional to the applied force or weight.
To use a load cell is typically mounted between the load-bearing structure and the load being measured. A triaxial load cell's electrical output is connected to a suitable instrument or device, such as a digital display or data acquisition system, which converts the signal into a readable format. Proper calibration and installation are crucial to ensure accurate measurements.
The accuracy of a load cell sensor depends on various factors, including the load cell's specifications, design, and the conditions under which it is used. High-quality load cells can offer accuracies ranging from 0.1% to 0.03% of the rated capacity. Factors such as temperature variations, vibrations, and proper calibration can affect the overall accuracy of the measurements obtained.
The voltage output of a load cell sensor typically depends on its design and specifications. Common voltage outputs for load cells include 0-10V, ±10V, 0-5V, or ±5V. Depending on the cell's capacity, whether it is a low profile load cell and the needs of the application, the precise voltage range may change. It is essential to check the load cell's datasheet or consult the manufacturer to determine the voltage range and compatibility with your measuring system.
