Analogue Load Cell
Approximate Price: 22500.00
Part Code – WB07
In basic terms, the load cell is the part of any scale that measures the weight or forced being applied. The cells convert the force of the load into an electrical signal, which is then read and displayed by a weight indictor. Load cells come in a range of different sizes, shapes, capacities and performance parameters. However, in the context of truck weighbridges, the basic distinction is ‘analogue’ and ‘digital’ load cells. Generally speaking, both analogue and digital cells use the same strain-gauge technology – but differ in terms of output of the load cell and therefore offer different benefits depending on the usage.
Analogue load cells: Analogue load cells are the most common solution. The output of analogue load cell is a continuous millivolt (mV) signal proportional to the applied load. Further processing and Analogue-to-Digital (A-to-D) conversion is done in the indicator. Analogue load cells can easily be paired with a variety of digital indicators across multiple brands. The load cells are further differentiated by design e.g. Compression, Shear-beam type.
This self-centering column load cell is manufactured from high quality stainless steel and has lightning surge arrestors fitted as standard together with a high specification polyurethane cable.
A comprehensive range of capacities is available. The Model T34 cell is designed specifically for weighbridge applications, for which mounting cup accessory sets in either stainless steel or nickel plated alloy steel are available as options. The T34 also has applications in tank weighing. For applications in aggressive environments where stress corrosion or acid attack is an issue, a special parylene coating can be specified as an option.
