Load Cell Classification

- May 31, 2017 -

  • Load Cell Classification according to the Shape:

The load cell is actually a device that converts the quality signal into a measurable electrical signal output. The sensor should be considered in the actual working environment of the sensor, which is essential for the correct selection of the load cell, it relates to the sensor can work properly and its safety and service life, and even the entire instrument reliability and safety Sex. In the load cell main technical indicators of the basic concepts and evaluation methods, the old and new GB quality differences. There are several types of S-type, single point type, spoke type, plate ring type, shear beam type, bridge type, column type and so on.

Classification according to the shape:

Weighing sensor according to the shape is divided into the following types:

1) Bridge type load cell:usually used for truck scale,railway scale,such as QH-41A,QH-41AQH-43A,QH-43B,QH-46.These models are large capacities load cells,usually 5t to 50t.

2) Single shear beam type load cell:usually used for floor scale,hopper scale,truck scale,such as QH-21,QH-21B,QH-21C,QH-21D,QH-22.The accessoies are weighing module,supporting foot and head.

3) Column type load cell:usually used for truck scale,railway scale,floor scale,such as QH-71A,

QH-71B,QH-72,QH-72A.These must be upper and lower head or weighing module when install these load cells.

4) S type load cell,aslo can be called tension load cell,usually used for crane scale,hopper scale,such as our model QH-31,QH-31B,QH-32,QH-32B,QH-33.The capacity always is 5kg to 10t.

5) Single point load cell:usually used for platform scale,counting scale,kitchen scale.The material of these load cells is alloy aluminum and the capacity is very small,always is 1kg to 1000kg,all of our QL-1 series and QL-5 series load cells are this type.

6) Bellows type load cell:usually used for platform scale,hopper scale,and the capacity id 5kg to 500kg,such as our model QH-23.

7) Spoke type load cell:usually used for testing machine,storage scale,truck scale and railway scale,the capacity is 1t to 300t,such as our model QH-61A,QH-61B,QH-61C,QH-61D,QH-62,etc.
