Strain gauges are applied to the flexural diaphragms in the load cell and deliver a bridge output voltage that is directly proportional to the measurand during concentric load application. Load cells of Type 4576A operate using strain gauge technology. The measuring unit contains an applied strain gauge full bridge which converts the affecting energy to an electrical signal. A metric thread is cut in the middle axis through which the measurement force is fed either by means of a load button or an application-related screw part. Lateral forces within an angular range of ±2,5° to the horizontal can be neglected. In case of greater lateral forces, constructive methods must be taken to lead the lateral forces away from the sensor (for example by levers held by roller bearings or movable bearings). To obtain best results, the load cell Type 4576A must be mounted on a plane flat surface. The use of the integral screw holes guarantees a simple mounting possibility for the sensor. The strain gauge load cell is available with nine different measuring ranges from 0 ... 0.5 kN to 0 ... 200 kN.
