Stiff Load Cell With High Overload Capability and Direct Frequency Output

Stiff Load Cell With High Overload Capability and Direct Frequency Output
Stiff Load Cell With High Overload Capability and Direct Frequency Output
This paper reports on the design, construction and characteristics of a novel load cell having stiffness and potential overload capability some 10 times that of a resistive strain gauge load cell. The experimental cell loaded up to 600 kg gives a direct output frequency change of 870 Hz (safety factor of 5). It uses recently developed metallic triple beam resonators with thick-film PZT drives and pickups.

Abstract

This paper reports on the design, construction and characteristics of a novel load cell having stiffness and potential overload capability some 10 times that of a resistive strain gauge load cell. The experimental cell loaded up to 600 kg gives a direct output frequency change of 870 Hz (safety factor of 5). It uses recently developed metallic triple beam resonators with thick-film PZT drives and pickups.
