How to Obtain Proper Rated Capacity of Load Cell
If the weighing object is a low-viscosity liquid showing less horizontal movement with both the tare and content and initiating less impact,
If there is vibration, use a higher factor in a range of 1.1 to 1.5 according to the degree of acceleration.
If the weighing object is powder or high-viscosity liquid,increase the above-mentioned factor to 1.3. If there is vibration, use a higher factor in a range of 1.3 to 1.5.
If the weighing object shows less horizontal movement with both the content and tare but initiates large impact,
If the weighing object shows horizontal movement with both the content and tare and initiates large impact,
Increase the factor to 1.7 if impact is repeatedly applied. Equations above are on the supposition that the load is evenly allotted to all load cells used in a multiple number. If the load is unevenly allotted, determine the rated capacity considering the load given to the load cell to which the biggest burden is allotted.
In the case of a hanging application, it is recommended to select a rated capacity 2 times higher than obtained through equations above, to ensure safe operation.
