Posted by Sensomatic Loadcell on October 7th, 2021

Each load cell is designed to fit specific applications and they are compatible with appropriate equipment and operations. The application of weighbridge load cell is imprinted in the name itself, but did you know that there are other varieties of load cells that suffice in a weighbridge application? There are lots more to the buying process of a load cell than one realizes, many factors to take into consideration.

Guide to Choose the Right Load Cell
Like we have mentioned before, the buying process of a load cell hinges on multiple decisive factors. We will highlight all that by seeking answers to the following queries:

What is the type of load cell application?
The process of measurement is closely related to the choice of application. For that, mainly four factors, such as compression, tension, multi-axis, and bending needs consideration. It would help in determining the durability and overall performance of the load cell, leading to the application determination. There are different kinds of applications like high-endurance industrial settings, remote settings, quality assurance and safety settings. You can further consult with your load cell suppliers for guidance on the load cell applications.

What is the capacity of your application needs?
An optimal load capacity is ideal for the force transducer application. That’s why the determination of the minimum and maximum load capacity of the application is foremost. It is best to choose a load cell that surpasses the highest operating limit of the load. For example, if the application is in an industrial setting then a force transducer with an appropriate fatigue rating would be most suitable.

What are your requirements specification-wise?
Another essential deciding factor while buying a strain gauge load cell or a double-ended load cell is the specifications compatible with the application. The following aspects should be considered:

  • Weight
  • Height
  • Width
  • Length
  • Non-linearity
  • Bridge resistance
  • hysteresis

What is the environment of your application?
The environment where the application would be used plays a significant role in the choice of the load cell. Whether it will be indoors or outdoors? If outdoors then what kind of weather conditions would it endure? Everything needs to be thought through. Being exposed to environmental conditions like rain, humidity, dust, snow and likewise can affect the functionality of the load cell.

For example, if your application is outdoors exposed to rain and humidity then constantly exposed to moisture and humidity, then a high-quality stainless steel load cell that is resistant to rust and corrosion is most favourable.

These are the most essential factors to keep in mind when buying a load cell for your particular application.
