What is Load Cell? Types of Load Cell

Load cells can be defined as certain type of electronic devices whose function involves converting certain amount of force into electrical signals. They have a crucial role in converting a certain amount of force into measurable electrical output. However, their uses include measuring shear forces, compression, tension and bending. In short, we can use it whenever the requirement for “force measurement” arises. When you use it with an indicator and PCL, it provides you with essential force information or mainly feeds it into the process system.

Load Cell

There are different types of load cells offered in the market such as hydraulic, strain gauge, compression load cell, pneumatic, S-beam load cell, tension load cells, etc. Different types of load cells are manufactured so as to meet varied demands of several applications which require the use of load cells. Thus, selecting right type of load cell is very essential as each type of load cells has its own individual functionalities and characteristics.
