What is a strain gauge load cell?
A strain gauge is an electrical resistor that is attached to a strain gauge load cell's internal elements.

What is the working principle of beam load cell / S beam load cell / s load cell? How does a beam load cell work?
Beam load cells, S beam load cell and s load cells work after the same physical principle as all other beam type load cell, but they keep in-load and out-load in one line. This means that no external moments occur which makes them simple to implement. They are mostly used in applications with s type load cell working principle.

A strain gauge load cell is placed within the weighing equipment. It is equipped with strain gauge load cell technology to apply the s type load cell working principle, so as a piece is weighed, the force it applies is measured. The strain gauge load cell deforms or reacts to that force and the strain gauges mirror that deformity and create an electrical signal, which is then measured in a digital format.

What is s type load cell? What is s load?
METTLER TOLEDO offers a wide range of strain gauge load cells from 5kg up to 300t capacity, including a 5 ton strain load cell. Strain gauge load cells such as the 5 ton s load cell are available in aluminum, plated steel and stainless steel electro-polished. Load cell accuracy calculation and load cell capacity calculation are described in detail in our Engineering Handbook.

Strain gauge load cells are available in various legal-for-trade accuracy levels according to OIML R60 and NTEP HB44; including OIML 3000e (OIML C3), NTEP 5000d, OIML 6000e (OIML C6), NTEP 10000d and OIML 10000e (OIML C10). Strain gauge load cells are available for your hazardous area application and are approved according to ATEX, FM (Factory Mutual), cFM (Canada), IECEx and NEPSI. They meet protection classes IP67, IP68 or even IP69K. Strain gauge load cells, beam load cells, S beam load cell and s load cells support the weightless calibration CalFree or even CalFree Plus allowing for tank calibration at your fingertip.

What is a shear beam load cell?
Shear beam load cells measure the shear strain in the load cell counterforce. Since this is not a strict definition, the term is often used for any beam load cell and bending beam load cell independent of its measurement principle or load cell s type. Scientifically, shear beam load cells are not more accurate by principle than beam load cells, despite rumors often repeated about them.

How do you use a strain gauge to measure weight?
METTLER TOLEDO strain gauge load cells enable the quick and safe integration of weighing into any machine for filling, dosing, batching, sorting by weight and check weighing. METTLER TOLEDO s beam load cells and bending beam load cells are used in food, pharmaceutical and chemical applications. They are available for various load cell types and applications depending on the application and environment to meet requirements of OEM machine manufacturers, system integrators and end-users. A wide range of accessories are available for strain load cells including base plates, load introduction hardware and isolators that cope with heat, shock and vibration.
