What is a load cell?
A load cell is a transducer used to monitor impressions, weight or force exerted on a surface which can then be converted into measurable output. There are several varieties of load cell in existence, however the most common types include strain gauge, shear beam, compression or tension load cells.
What are the best type of load cells for weighing scale?
Load cells come in many varieties, with some lending themselves better to certain types of weighing scale over others. For example, bending beam load cells are often used for pallet and platform scales, whilst S-type or Z-beam load cells are more frequently used in hanging scales. Shear beam load cells are often considered to be the most versatile and can be used in many agricultural weighing systems such as vessels and hopper scales, heavy industrial and automotive weighing equipment such as truck scales, and medical applications such as weighing scales required for hospital beds.
