Typical Applications Include
- Vibrating wire strain gauge type load cell is designed to monitor accurate tensile load in tiebacks, anchors, struts and structure supports
Depending on the size, the high precision waterproof load cell is equipped with between 3 to 6 strain gauges at equal spacing around the cylinder.
The readings from each strain gauge are averaged and calculated into engineering units using the calibration factors.
Data collection may be done manually with a hand-held readout unit or automated using a datalogger.
