Strain Gauge Load Cell

Strain Gauge Load Cells measure compressive and tensile loads in rock bolts, cable anchors and tendons. They consist of a Stainless Steel cylindrical housing with up to 16 resistance strain gauges in a Wheatstone Bridge configuration. When the cell is subjected to load, the strain gauges change their resistance value; the resulting output signal is directly proportional to the applied load. The cell is connected to a sheathed cable which is itself connected either directly to a readout unit, or via a switched terminal unit. Load cells can also be wired directly to dataloggers for remote monitoring. Load cells are manufactured with a centre hole to accommodate rockbolts, tendons or anchor cables, but can be supplied with top and bottom load plates for use as a solid centre cell.
