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

How does a strain gauge load cell work?
A strain load cell is placed within the weighing equipment. It is equipped with strain-gauge technology by load cell suppliers, so as a piece is weighed, the force it applies is measured. The 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 are strain gauge load cells used for?
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 load cells such as a 5 ton load cell are used in food, pharmaceutical and chemical applications. They are available in various versions 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.

Load cell suppliers
METTLER TOLEDO offers a wide range of strain gauge load cells from 5kg up to 300t capacity, including a 5 ton load cell capacity. Load cells such as the 5 ton load cell are available in aluminum, plated steel and stainless steel electro-polished. 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). 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.  Load cells support the weightless calibration CalFree or even CalFree Plus allowing for tank calibration at your fingertip.

POWERCELL load cells allow for diagnostics down to the load cell level, alarm the user in case of a failure and enable a quick fix of problems. RunFlat allows simulation of a failed load cell to continue production for minimal downtime. Among load cell suppliers, we offer a wide range of load cell material and strain load cell options.

How does a shear beam load cell work?
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-shaped load cell independent of its measurement principle or load cell material. Scientifically, shear beam load cells are not more accurate by principle than beam load cells, despite rumors often repeated about them.
