The compression load cell is particularly suitable for implementation in container and hopper scales.
The measuring element is a solid cylinder made of stainless steel to which 4 strain gauges are applied.
The load which acts centrally in the measuring direction causes the spring bodies and therefore the friction-locked strain gauges to be elastically deformed. This generates a measuring signal voltage that is proportional to the load.
The rated measuring path of the load cell is dependent on the rated load and lies between 0.23 and 2.67 mm.
