What are Load Cells?
A load cell is a sensor which transforms the load or force applied to it into an electrical signal. Load cell sensors are based on the strain-gauge principle i.e. a sensor whose resistance varies with applied force. They are the most widely used as load
transducers in all areas of weight measurement from retail scales, the process industry and medical applications.
