Loadcell

A load cell is a transducer for the measurement of force or weight. It converts a load into an electrical signal.

Strain gauge load cells are an integral part of weighing systems. We source the best load cells in Australia for specific applications from a variety of local specialist suppliers and manufacturers.

Active Weighing will source the best load cells for specific applications from a variety of specialist suppliers. A strain gauge load cell is a transducer which converts a measured force or weight to an electrical signal. Connected to a weighing indicator or controller, this information is used to report or control process operations. These load cells vary in size, construction, and material, to deliver the needed sensitivity to weight, changes in weight and the maximum load handled. Selecting the best load cell for an application depends upon multiple criteria including:
  • Total weight to be handled
  • Measurement accuracy required
  • Whether the application is for static or dynamic (in motion) measurement
  • The situation and environment where the Load Cell is installed.
As precision measurements instruments, load cells must be protected when transported and installed with care. If damaged or overstrained, a load cell will not provide reliable load signal information and must be replaced. Please contact us for replacement load cells to suit your weighing application. We source our load cell supplies from a variety of overseas manufacturers via their Australian based offices. We are a distributor for Precision Transducers load cells, a New Zealand manufacturer. A selection of their range is displayed below.
