Product portfolio Weighing Sensors & Load Cells

负载细胞和重量传感器可用于bB0B体育平台下载uild weighing stations and other systems for weighing goods. They transform a load or weight into an electronic signal. This output signal can take the form of a change in current, frequency, or voltage, depending on the type of load cell and its configuration. Every sensor is made from a durable material such as steel and fitted with one or more strain gauges. When force is applied to the strain gauge, it transmits a low electrical current. Weighing sensors can be pressure or tension based, or even bidirectional.


Load cells form a special section of our weighing sensor portfolio. They are used in weighing systems, such as scales or other devices for weighing goods. Unlike force sensors, the measurements are given in grams, kilograms, or tons. Typical load cells are based on bending or shear beams. However, you can also use low-profile force sensors or cylindrical load cells to construct weighing systems.



Components of Our Load Cells


You can use our standard strain gauge amplifiers to amplify the signal or evaluate weighing cell signals. Alternatively, we are happy to provide custom measurement systems and fully integrated solutions.



When using external strain gauge amplifiers, scale your measurement signal in such a way that only the desired range is given as an output. This lets you compensate for large offset values such as the static weight of a silo or platform.

We are happy to answer any questions you might have!

Automation Solutions Tailored to Your Requirements

LAUMAS automation solutions are in used in many industries. The products are ideally suited for the beverage, food, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries.

Use the weighing systems in packaging and logistics. Use them to measure container levels and monitor the amounts used in your bottling and packaging plants. That way, you make sure that your machines are always working with the right dosages and amounts. Cranes and elevators also work reliably with weighing modules from our portfolio.

Althen offers flexible automation solutions for your measurement needs, tailored to your specific requirements. Our extensive portfolio guarantees that you will find the right product – even for very small or very large loads.

We also offer load cells that are suitable for use in environments with explosive atmospheres (ATEX) due to their resistance against dust and vapor. That way, you always get exact measurements – even under difficult conditions and in harsh environments.
