#105036 - load cells
Responding to: Steve M. Taylor's previous message
he could try Dillon Quantrol

small hijack

I just bought one of these systems and am impressed. The cells are sealed so there is no clue as to how data is derived. and I admit to a little curiosity. This thing goes to 22000 lbl in 10 lb steps yet the total deformation on the cell is under .020 inch no load to full load and it reads both compression and extension same range same accuracy. Other cells are availible for very low forces as well as rotational torque.
I have never thought about the guts before. Some how I think a piezo element is what is in there. Can anyone enlighten me?
Thanks Terry
