Force Measurement

Force measurement is widely used throughout a variety of industries. Load cells can be found in hand held force measurement devices as well as test stands and dynamometers. Because of the uniqueness of these tests, the load cells (or weight sensors) come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. The capacity ranges can also vary from grams (measuring the force to crush a pill) to millions of pounds (testing steel alloys to their yield limits). The electronics required for this application need to record the output from the load cells at a very rapid rate. They also need to be very precise in determining the peak forces being measured.
