How to Calibrate Load Cells
As with any precise measurement device, calibration of a load cell, or the scale that uses it, is an exact science. Before delving into the subject of calibration, let’s take a closer look at the intricacies of the device, to get a better idea of exactly what we will be calibrating. A load cell is a type of transducer (meaning that it converts one type of energy into a different type of energy) which reads an initial amount of force or weight, and then converts this force into an electrical signal.
