Annual load cell calibration provides an opportunity for the load cell’s operation and performance to be checked against its original manufacturing standards and for any developing problems to be identified before an ‘in operation’ failure occurs, resulting in expensive downtime.

A load cell used as a force or weight measurement device needs to be properly calibrated to ensure the output is an accurate indication of the applied load or force.

The accuracy of any load cell can deteriorate over time due to overloading, poor alignment, constant cycling and misuse. The sensitive elements of the load cell are also affected by external sources, such as EMC, excitation voltage, insulation resistance and moisture ingress.

If your load cell is used for lifting, restraining, measuring and structural monitoring applications, the accurate measurement of an applied force is essential for safety, data integrity and for compliance with quality management systems to the relevant national standards, ISO9000.
