A load cell is a transducer that converts force or load into usable electrical signal. The primary mechanical element develops a strain as the load cells is loaded and this strain is transferred through the strain guages that are bonded on to this mechanical element The output electric signal is in Milli volts. There are normally four strain guages that are bonded in the Wheatstone bridge configuration. Strain Guage based load cells are passive transducer i.e. it does not generate its own signals and have to be excited with an external voltage commonly referred as the excitation voltage. The output of the load cell is proportional to the load and the excitation voltage.
IPA has pioneered the development of loadcells in India. Today we are a leading manufacturer of loadcells. We have our own in-house machining center and have total quality control on the process.
We manufacture loadcells from under 1 kg to a 1000Tonnes. Based on various applications, below you find a few of our standard loadcells. Our loadcells are made of Aluminium, EN-24 and 17-4pH steel
