Take a look at our Technical Notes on Load Cells
The Geosense® SGLC 7050 series load cell consists of a solid cylinder of high strength stainless steel with a series of electrical resistance strain gauges connected around the periphery as a Wheatstone Bridge that compensates for unevenly distributed loads and provides a single mV/V signal output.
It is most commonly used to measure load acting on piles, struts, arch supports and props.It is most commonly used to measure load acting on piles, struts, arch supports and props.
When the load cell is subjected to load the resistance of the strain gauges will change and the output signal is directly proportional to the applied load. Mounting surfaces should be flat and parallel for optimum performance and the use of loading cap for strut monitoring is recommended.
Connection to the load cell is via a heavy-duty multi-core sheathed cable which can be connected to a direct portable readout, data logging or Wi-SOS 400 system.
