even realizing it. They are employed in weight scales for home use. The video below will show you exactly the tension load cells are and the ways they operate.
It is first a force gauge with a transducer. There are four different types. These are pneumatic strain gauge, hydraulic and capacitance. An air supply is required for a pneumatic load cell. It uses oxygen under pressure for weight equalization. The hydraulic load cell functions like the one above, except that it employs liquid instead of air. The pressure gauge, piston and diaphragm comprise the main components. In the next step, the strain gauge is equipped with a transducer, which alters electric resistance in the event of strain. This permits items to be weighed in accordance with the tension. The capacitive load cells can be the final choice. It is made up of two rectangular plates that carry current. When a load is applied, it forces the plates apart, which changes their capacitance. This is what determines the amount of weight they have. It is evident that though there are many types of tension-sensitive load cells, they are actually very simple.
