  • Introduction to Load Cells
    Load Cell: A load cell is a transducer that converts a load acting on it into an analog electrical signal. This conversion is achieved by the physical deformation of strain gages which are bonded into the load cell beam and wired into a wheatstone bridge configuration. A load cell is a transducer

    . The change in resistance of the strain gauge provides an electrical value change that is calibrated to the load placed on the load cell. In most cases, four strain gauges (in a full Wheatstone bridge configuration) are used to obtain maximum sensitivity and temperature compensation. Two of the gauges
