Load Cell is a type of transducer that converts force into a measurable electrical output. However,they don’t work without being paired up with external sensors such as strain gauges. Strain Gauges are thin elastic material made up of stainless steel and are fixed inside the load cell. The force exerted on the load cell tends to deform the strain gauge. This deformation causes a change in resistance which is then converted to the readable unit to determine the weight of an object.
Encardio-Rite is the world’s leading load cell manufacturers and suppliers as well. We deal with a range of hydraulic load cell, compression load cell, as well as, strain gauge load cell.
