40Kg Load Cell
- Applications: Weighing Scales, Retail, Bench & Counting Scales
- A load cell is a transducer that is used to convert a force into electrical signal.
- The most common use of this sensor is in weighing machine.
- Every weighing machine which shows weight has a loadcell as sensing element.
40Kg Load Cell
The electrical signal output is typically in the order of a few millivolts and requires amplification by an instrumentation amplifier before it can be used. The output of the transducer is plugged into an algorithm to calculate the force applied to the transducer.
This conversion is indirect and happens in two stages. Through a mechanical arrangement, the force being sensed deforms a strain gauge. The strain gauge measures the deformation (strain) as an electrical signal, because the strain changes the effective electrical resistance of the wire. A load cell usually consists of four strain gauges in a Wheatstone bridge configuration. Load cells of one strain gauge (quarter bridge) or two strain gauges (half bridge) are also available.

How do you calibrate load cells?
Usually, there will be an option called Span Calibration. Choose this option to calibrate and use a test load on the load cell. Wait for the load cell to adjust and once it does, press Enter to finish the calibration process.
