Single-Ended Shear Beam
One of the OEM load cells produced by Camaweigh is a single-ended shear beam. Since it is only a single-ended shear beam load cell, only one end of the device can be used to measure weight. Its recommended applications are low profile platforms, pallet truck, tank, silo weighing, and typical floor scales. This type of load cells is made of alloy steel. Alloy steel is known for its strength and ability to handle large loads.
This OEM load cell comes in either alloy steel or stainless steel, but it is optional. This ensures the load cell’s improved hardness, durability, toughness, and ability to withstand corrosion.
The weighing accuracy class of this type of Camaweigh’s OEM load cell is rated as OIML C3, but it’s still pending for approval. The C3 accuracy class is given to load cells with high accuracy specification. Load cells in the C3 Accuracy Class classification are mostly used with weighing machines used for tank weighing and light scales.
The maximum force capacity of this OEM load cells ranges from 0.5t to 10t. Overload is allowed but to a certain extent only.
The maximum safe overload capacity of this load cell is 150% of its maximum load capacity. Exceeding 150% may put the load cell in danger of being deformed.
The maximum overload allowed is 250% of the maximum load capacity. Exceeding 250% will deform the load cell and cause inaccurate measurements.
Load cells need to be properly mounted in the right position. Improper mounting of the load cells will result into wrong readings and inaccurate results. Overloading weighing device is sometimes unavoidable which may result permanent deformation of the load cell. Permanent load cell deformation will make calibration impossible. Another common problem with load cells is electrical damage. Being exposed to significant electrical currents damage the resistors in the load cells.
