Load and Pressure
Load measurement of single tie rods, used in dams , embankments , bridges , viaducts , rods in tunnels etc.
The load cells of the LC240 series have been designed to measure, with maximum precision and reliability, the variations in workload to which the nails or single-strand tie-rods , thus allowing you to carefully assess any release losses during operation.
Subjected to an external load, the cell undergoes a deformation which is faithfully detected by the strain gauge bridge located inside it, transforming it into an electrical signal. The strain-gauges , electrically connected in a Wheatstone bridge configuration, detect the deformations in compression , automatically compensating for the bending effect . Furthermore, the instruments are temperature compensated.
An accurate protection of the sensors allows the use of these instruments in difficult environmental conditions , without any fear of breakdowns or malfunctions.
Each cell is supplied with a test certificate which certifies the results of the test performed and the electromechanical characteristics of the same.
