Load cell KM
The load cell KM is suitable for measuring the compressive force. To apply force a flat surface acts against the spherical cap of the load cell. Thus, no bending moments are introduced to the load cell.
The measurement of force is carried out with strain gauges, which are applied to the bottom side of the diaphragm with the spherical cap.
The internal volume of the load cell is fully potted with casting resins and sealed with a metal cover.
The design "load cell" is therefore particularly robust and inexpensive.
With the larger models KM40, KM90, KM115 an accuracy class of 0.5% and even up to 0.2% is achieved.
