S Beam Load Cells
Load cells are sensors or transducers that interpret force or pressure as an electrical output that can be measured. S beam load cells are low capacity bending-beam load cells made of aluminum alloy and have a capacity range between 1kg to 5 tons, depending on the application. The S beam load cells required to do more work or heavy duty work are made from a corrosion resistant, carbon-steel, nickel-plated alloy.
S beam load cells are used for several applications including weighing tanks and industrial process control, static weighing, dynamic weighing, and force measuring operations. S beam load cells are aptly named for their “S” shape and fall under the beam load cell category of load cells. There are different kinds of beam load cells, and they include: shear beam load cells, single point load cells, heavy duty shear load cells, shear beam load cells, double beam load cells, cantilever load cells and bending beam load cells.
