A load cell is a transducer to measure force. The strain gauge load cell is a commonly used kind of load cells as a weighing sensor. It is based on Wheatstone Bridge electrical circuit of four balanced resistors with a known excitation voltage.
Our stock of load cells in the Dubai warehouse has the most common load cell types used in force and weighing measurement applications including; Single Point load cells, Bending Beam load cells, Shear Beam load cells, S-type load cells, compression load cells, double-ended shear beam load cell, Column type load cells, Weighbridge load cells

What is a load cell?
A load cell is a type of force sensor (gauge) also known as load transducer)
That can sense a physical-mechanical force effect by creating a change in its output electrical signal whose magnitude is directly proportional to the force being measured.

Types of load cells
Load cell types can be classified and grouped in many ways. It can depend on factors like design, construct (alloy steel, aluminum, and stainless steel), and force direction, signal output type…
When load cells classified by the applied load and force detection direction, load cells categorized into: tension-type load cell, compression type load cell, alternating type load cell, and bending type load cell.
the most commonly used classification used in the force and weighing measuring industries are:
Single Point load cells:
used in bench-scale, small to medium platform scale, packing and batching machines. available mostly in aluminum and stainless steel construct
S-type load cells:
used in tension force and hanging weighing applications. it can be found in crane scales and hanging industrial systems like a hopper. Some s-type load cells can handle both tension and compression load measuring.
