Category Description

<p>Find and buy load cells and load cell accessories from verified suppliers on IndustrySearch. Load cells measure weight or forces such as compression, tension, bending or shear.</p> <p>Things to consider when buying load cells:</p> <ul> <li><strong>Know your application</strong> - Important factors to know before getting started are expected maximum load, direction of load, required accuracy - as % of maximum load, operating temperature - especially if it may vary.</li> <li><strong>Electrical considerations</strong> - multiple load cells may require averaging or summing circuitry.</li> <li>The type of load cells required: <ul> <li><strong>Strain gauge:</strong> These are the most widely used and have a wide range of load capacity. They come in different mounting configurations e.g: <ul> <li><strong>S-beam:</strong> suitable for accurate dynamic and static measurement. Used for hanging or suspending a weighing system (tension).</li> <li><strong>Platform:</strong> for applications requiring water tightness and high accuracy.</li> <li><strong>Double-ended load cell:</strong> for multipurpose load measuring applications such as medium weight to high capacity weight measurement. Mainly used in bin, silo and hopper.</li> <li><strong>Rope clamps:</strong> popular in hoist, crane and elevator applications due to their ease of installation.</li> </ul></li> <li><strong>Hydraulic</strong> - immune to water damage, damage from lightning strikes and other electrical surges, operate over a wide range of temperatures, low maintenance costs.</li> <li><strong>Pneumatic</strong> - Relatively slow, useful for lightweight applications with high sensitivity needs. Running on air they are explosion proof, hygienic and insensitive across a broad temperature range.</li> </ul></li> </ul> <p>We also have a broad range of load cell accessories such as indicators, displays, transmitters, protectors, calibrators and junction boxes.</p>
