Load cells guarantee correct results in many applications. However, there are many factors that need to be taken into account when installing, evaluating and using load cells.
Technical Articles, Know-how and Tips and Tricks
Our articles provide you with tips and information on how to correctly install load cells.
Basics of Load Measurement
Automatic weighing instruments for legal-for-trade applications
Weighing instruments that are to be used in legal-for-trade applications need to comply with the European Measurement Instruments Directive (MID).
Overload protection - good protection for load cells
Protecting load cells against overload is frequently achieved by over-dimensioning them. If the overload protection is actually achieved through this, no additional expenditure is necessary.
Cables and their impact on test and measurement equipment
The complete measuring chain needs to meet high quality standards. High demands should also be made on the measuring cables.
