A rope tension load cell is a sensor that indirectly measures tension. The biggest feature of this kind of load cell is that there is no need to replace or change the structure or parts of the original equipment, and the installation is very convenient. Suitable for fishing boats, ports, and lifting equipment.
The load cell is a kind of precision electronic component, which usually works as a weighing part in the system. This requires the load cell to maintain a high weighing accuracy for a long time. In actual production, affected by many factors (wear, frequency of use, temperature, stress release, etc.), the load cell will often start to show errors after a period of use. That is why it is essential to inspect and calibrate them routinely.
The routine calibration of the load cell helps to improve the accuracy. The specific degree of improvement is affected by the sensor itself and the installation structure, generally 0.05-1%. Before calibrating the sensor, we have to test the sensor wiring and installation. Then we start to calibrate the sensor. When the device is empty, the output of the sensor is calibrated to 0, and then add a weight that does not exceed the full range of the sensor, and input the value into the meter at the same time, and press the calibration button on the meter when it stabilizes. Calibration. Finally, we will use a weight of known weight to test the calibration result.
