Fixture Required to Avoid DamageThe load cell worked well. My one complaint is that the friction from the nut rotating caused the steel plate we had on the outside to rotate, which in turn caused the load cell to rotate - damaging it's wire. It's easily addressed by either having a fixture, or at the very least having a handle welded to the nut-side plate so it can be held. Lesson learned.
i plan on using my own output recording device, what is 2 mV/V mean? is V some form of weight such as kg or lbs? if V is volts, do you have a conversion chart that converts volts to kg?
Asked by: cheesehead
2mV/V is output sensitivity of the load cell. The means that for every volt excitation power you supply to the load cell you will see a nominal 2 mV output at the full force load applied to the load cell. If you apply the nominal excitation of 10VDC to the load cell you will see a nominal output signal of 0 to 20 mVDC over the load range on the load cell. Each load cell is supplied with a NIST traceable calibration report that tell you the exact mV/V sensitivity of that load cell

What is the total deflection at FS?
Asked by: Lorne
Hi, Nominal full scale deflection for the LC8200 Series Through-Hole Load Cells is 0.003".
