There is a difference in output from Alternating Current (AC) measurements and Direct Current (DC). To show the difference, we used a load cell simulator on two different meters.
It is becoming more and more common to have portable devices that use batteries. This can be a great benefit to someone who wants ultimate portability.
Morehouse load cell alignment plugs are used to help center the load cell in calibrating machines. They are used in combination with the other adapters below. More information on load cell adapters and the mounting accessories can be found here.
Purchasing the "right" load cell system is critical for the application, and obtaining reliable results. Purchasing a system merely based on cost and not looking at the right specifications may result in a complete waste of capital. If the system chosen does not perform well in the environment it is being used, the resulting measurements may not be meaningful.
Universal Calibrating Machine - a versatile compression and tension machine used for the calibration of load cells, force gauges, crane scales and other force measuring instruments for the purpose of calibrating or characterizing the devices for use as secondary standards, working standards, or to make field measurements.
If a load cell is to be used to make descending measurements, it must be calibrated with a descending range
This post will examine the effects of calibrating the load cell in compression by switching to tension and then back to compression, versus calibrating in tension first and then compression. We will determine if there is a statistical difference in output from transitioning back and forth between compression and tension on newer load cells.
