What Are the Advantages of S-Type Load Cells?

The S-type sensor is one of the most common types of sensors because of its shape resembling an "S." It is mainly used to measure tensile or compressive force and is commonly known as the S-type load cell, which can be used singularly or in multiple combinations.

The S-type load cell is a common type of load cell

Because of its shape resembling the letter "Z," it is sometimes called the "Z-type load cell." It can measure from 2kg to 10 tons and is mainly used in electronic devices using resistance strain gauges. The resistance strain gauge force sensor consists of an elastic material, a resistance strain gauge, a compensating resistor, and a wiring cable. It can be designed in various structural forms depending on the actual measurement. The elastic material deforms due to the measured force and causes the resistance strain gauge adhering to it to deform as well. The resistance strain gauge then converts the deformation into a change in resistance value, enabling the measurement of force.

The function of the S-type load cell

The S-type load cell has the function of measuring both tensile and compressive force. It is widely used in many industrial automation equipment. The S-type load cell is generally small in size, and the range is not particularly large; the range between 100kg and 500kg is quite common. The main material of this sensor is alloy steel, and its cost-effectiveness has made this sensor popular among most customers. The S-type load cell's anti-offset load capacity is also top-notch among many sensors. Its advantages are high precision, good measurement range, and easy installation. It has received widespread use in the packaging industry, such as cement packaging machines, fertilizer packaging machines, liquid filling machines, and so on. The S-type load cell's stable performance, low price, and high versatility have made it widely used in industrial production. The advantages of using the S-type load cell include:

  • High load capacity and high precision.

  • Wide measurement range.

  • Can be used for tensile or compressive force applications.

  • Compact structure, suitable for limited space applications.

  • Alloy steel or stainless steel material can be selected.

The TJL-1 series load cell of Anhui Tianguang Sensor is an S-type tension load cell. The S-type load cell adopts a classic S-shaped structure with high precision. It has threads on both ends for easy installation and can be used for both tensile and compressive force applications. It is suitable for batching scales, packaging scales, and various mechanical testing equipment.
