Load cells are transducers which convert pressure or force and give a measurable electrical output. Different types of load cells are used for different applications. For example, when intrinsic safety and hygiene are required, a pneumatic load cell is used. In a situation where use in remote locations is required, hydraulic load cells would be the ideal kind.
Strain gauge load cells can be used for almost all industrial application and they are very versatile. Tension load cells which are also commonly called compression load cells are ideal for applications where the load may go from tension to compression, or from compression to tension. They are very suitable for environments that restrict space, and their threaded ends allow for easy installation.Read More…
