Strain Gauge Anchor

The SGLC 7000 series load cell consists of a cylinder of high strength steel with a series of electrical resistance strain gauges connected around the periphery as a Wheatstone Bridge that compensates for unevenly distributed loads and provides a single mV/V signal output. They are manufactured with a centre hole to accommodate anchors, rock bolts and tendons. When the load cell is subjected to load the resistance of the strain gauges will change and the output signal is directly proportional to the applied load. The load cells are compensated for temperature variations often found during normal operating environments and have in-built lightning protection.
