Clamp Type Load Cell
They are also powered with the help of an audible alarm. This kind of alarm is raised whenever the safety limit of the equipment is infringed. The safety limit is reduced to a form of code installed as a kind of algorithm in the device. The device is a kind of sensor that can either shut down the operations or raise an audible alarm.
Clamp-type load cells are an essential type of cell that helps in locating the direction of the load. These load cells are installed on a fixed cable and a wire. They allow an intuitive way of viewing overload conditions on a variety of equipment such as a crane, hoist, or winch. They are supported and powered by digital indicators. These indicators may indicate the presence of conditions such as overweight and incorrect inclination.
They are also operated with the help of an audible alarm. This type of alarm is raised whenever the safety limit of the equipment is breached. The security limit is reduced as the code installed in the device as a sort of algorithm. The device is a type of sensor that can either stop operating or raise an audible alarm.
A load cell sensor or a transducer that converts the load or force acting on it into an electronic signal. This electronic signal can be a voltage change, a current change or a frequency change depending on the type of load cell and the circuitry used.
There are different types of load cells.
Resistive load cells work on the theory of piezo-resistivity. When load/force/stress is applied to the sensor, it changes its resistance.
Capacitive load cells work on the theory of change of capacitance.
