What is a LOAD CELL? - We explain the types

Steve Sargeant | Pulse | LinkedIn: A load cell is a highly accurate device that is used to measure weight or force in a number of different applications. They can be used to measure compression, tension, bending or shear forces.

The load cell itself is a transducer that is used to convert force into an electrical signal. Within the load cell structure is an area, or group of areas, which are designed to be stressed when a load/force is applied, normally in a linear fashion.
