A load cell is a transducer that is used to convert a force into an electrical signal. This conversion is indirect and happens in two stages. Through a mechanical arrangement, the force being sensed deforms a strain gauge. As the strain changes the effective electrical resistance of the wire, the strain gauge measures the deformation (strain) as an electrical signal. Lion Bulk Handling integrated the load cell measurement into the material handling systems of offshore and marine vessels. The load cells are also suitable with our land-based applications.
