Load Cell Application and Test Guidelines

Posted on November 1, 2016

A load cell is a device that is used to measure weight or force. W hen a force is applied to it in a specific manner, a load cell produces an output signal that is proportional to the applied force. One end of a load cell is typically supported on a rigid structure while the other end supports a load-receiving device through which the load or force is applied. Load cells can be used individually or in combinations in weighing devices, as dictated by the geometry of the object to be weighed.
