A load cell can help with the automatization of the weight measuring processes along with output calibration or lifting installation safety. In Airpes we have many varieties, types and series of load cells available.
Load cells are high precision sensors (a strain gauge system) used in almost every existing weighing system. Load cells have many applications and their main use is to capture and measure data involving bending, pressure, temperature, tension, torque etc and inform the user or machinery operator about the machine’s effort, strength or weight in different conditions. For safety reasons but also for accuracy measuring, service calibration or process automatization it’s very important to have load cells in your weighing and lifting systems. Also they help on technical fatigue machinery testing and test benches.
In Airpes we design and provide also load cells converters that help read and measure with precision the electrical analog signal, convert it to a digital weight value and output and send the information via CANopen (CANopen is a universal high level communications protocol and software widely used at industrial level). Many companies use this types of load cells because they are low cost and there’s no need of wiring for installing the sensors. We also have load cells limiters in alloyed steel, anticorrosive treatment high temperature resistant, so you can install a load cell in any environment, along with other accesories, applications and machinery.
