Working principle of weighing transducer
What is a weighing transducer, what are the different types of force sensors, and how do they work in force measurement? Learn about the functions and capabilities of various weighing transducers (also called force sensors) in this comprehensive guide.
We produce a wide range of weighing transducers, using one of the most advanced technologies in the weighing transducer industry: metal foil strain gauge technology. A force sensor is defined as the input mechanical conversion of the transducer's load, weight, tension, compression, or pressure into an electrical output signal (load cell definition). The weighing transducer is also commonly referred to as a force sensor. According to size, geometry and capacity, there are many types of load cells.
What is a weighing transducer, force sensor?
By definition, a weighing transducer (or load cell) is a sensor, especially a force sensor. Its input mechanical force transforms such as load, weight (also known as weight sensor), tension, compression or pressure (also known as the measurement of pressure by a pressure sensor-what is a pressure sensor) to another physical variable, in this case, The electrical output can be measured, converted and standardized signals. As the force applied to the force sensor increases, the electrical signal changes proportionally.
The weighing transducer has become a basic element in many industries such as automobiles, high-precision manufacturing, aerospace and defense, industrial automation, medical and pharmaceuticals, and robotics. In these industries, reliable and high-precision load measurement (ie, medical weighing sensors) is crucially important. Recently, with the advancement of collaborative robots (Cobots) and surgical robots, many novel force measurement applications have emerged, such as miniature medical sensors for robotic surgery.
