Stiff Load Cell With High Overload Capability and Direct Frequency Output

Yan, T, Jones, B E, Rakowski, R T, Tudor, M J, Beeby, S P and White, N M (2004) Stiff Load Cell With High Overload Capability and Direct Frequency Output At 18th European Conference on Solid-State Sensors (Eurosensors 2004). , pp. 442-443.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


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.
