5 kg Load cell (strain gauge)
This strain gauge can translate up to 5kg of pressure into an electrical signal. The signal generated is small and an amplifier must be used, our HX711 Load Cell (Weight) Amplifier works great with them. This 5 kg Load cell is also called a straight bar.
With this gauge, you will be able to tell just how heavy an object is, if an object’s weight changes over time, or if you simply need to sense the presence of an object by measuring strain or load applied to a surface.
Each straight bar load cell is made from an aluminum-alloy and is capable of reading a capacity of 5kg.
These load cells have four strain gauges that are hooked up in a Wheatstone bridge formation.
