    A problem of load cell accuracy
    I already had switched the green and white cable so that the order was green, white, red, and black. This gave me an inclining positive value as you said but that does not seem to be the problem. When I measure the signal being outputted directly from the load cell, it seems to affect the accuracy if the signal is a negative value. I'm measuring the signal over the S- and S . So when I first tried to calibrate I went through the process as mentioned in the description. But when I removed the weight and put it back it seemed to be way off. So I checked the S- and S  and saw the values being negative. Then I calibrated the zero level til I had a positive value on the S- and S  readings and then the accuracy seemed to be right. Although the zero level was now 2V. How do I fix this?

    Regarding our previous suggestion, first you need to ensure that the voltage signal output by the measuring transmitter is positive after the load cell and the transmitter are wired correctly. You can only perform the calibration step if the output signal is confirmed to be positive, not if the signal is negative.When calibrating, you need to complete 2 steps. First perform no-load zero calibration, and adjust the zero potentiometer to display the signal output to 0. After the completion, perform load target point calibration. For example, if the weight is 50Kg, which is equivalent to 10% of the full scale of 500Kg, then the output voltage signal should be 10% of 5V, which is 0.5V. You need to adjust the span potentiometer until the output signal shows 0.5V.
    I want to buy a Miniature Tension and Compression Load Cell 3kg sensor for my application. And I have two questions.
    I want to buy a Miniature Tension and Compression Load Cell 3kg sensor for my application. And I have two questions.
    1. If I power the sensors with 5 volts, what type of output voltage should I expect for the full range? 0 - 5 V? Do I need an external amplifier?
    2. Our application will apply a small (0.05 Nm) torque on the sensor. (if the sensor's main axis is in the Z direction, the torque is around the Rx/ Ry axes). Can you tell me if that is an issue with this sensor? Does it affect the measured force?

    1. The default output voltage of the sensor is mV, if you want to output a 0-5V signal, then you have to purchase/add a transmitter/amplifier;
    2. For your application to apply a small (0.05 Nm) torque to the sensor, please, provide a schematic diagram showing how it will be, for further confirmation.
    Load cell reading
    When we connect 2 load cell to display controller via junction box, what would be the reading refers to?

    Was this review helpful? Yes No (0/0)
    ATO Responded
    When two load cells are connected to the controller through a junction box, the weight value of the two load cells read by the controller is usually the actual weight value, not the sum of the weights measured by the sensor separately!
    I need a load cell that can sustain weight.
    I need a load cell which will be constantly under weight (up to 300kg ). In my application, I need to monitor the reduction of that weight (the weight load will decrease by a multiplier of 5KG), and then output that difference in weight change.
    Basically a "reverse load cell" or an "unload cell".
    My main concern, how do your load cells show under constant weight for prolonged periods, does such a cell exist which is able to handle this scenario?

    Yes, our load cell sensors support the usage described below.
    But we don't know where the sensor will be installed, the specific size requirements, etc. So I cannot recommend a certain model.
    Please, provide photos of your application, and where will the load cell be installed?
    Parameters of load cell
    Looking for a disc type compressive load cell capable of a max load of ~300kg. What outputs do your load cells have? What is the resolution/accuracy?

    ATO Responded
    The output of our load cell is 0-20mV.
    After purchasing our ATO load cell, you can buy our special digital panel meter to obtain readings directly, or buy our transmitter to output standard signal to PLC, DCS and other systems. Customized output signal is 0-5V, 0-10V, or 4 -20mA.

    Questions about 3kg/20kg/100kg to 500kg load cell
    I want to know if your 3kg/20kg/100kg to 500kg load cell is affected by magnetic field?
    From: Brendon | Date: 08/03/2021
    Was this review helpful? Yes No (0/0)
    ATO Responded
    Yes, the output voltage signal of the load cell from 3kg/20kg/100kg to 500kg will be affected by the magnetic field, which is proportional to the strength of the magnetic field.
