Load Cell Accuracy

Load Cell Accuracy D1 – C2 – this load cell accuracy class is relatively low. It is sufficient for applications in simple building materials scales which are used to weigh cement, sand or water as well as non-trade applications. C3 (0.0230%) – accuracy class C3 is the most...

Draw Wire Sensors

Draw wire sensors are a type of linear position sensor. They use a cable and a spring-loaded spool to measure and detect linear displacement. Draw Wire Sensor Operating Principle Draw wire sensors are small in size compared to their measuring range. Often a draw wire sensor would be selected...

Applications of Sensors

A sensor is a measuring device which senses a change in their surrounding environment, they are often manufactured into larger systems and devices and can monitor different variables depending on the type of sensor they are. There is a multitude of different sensor types, the most popular...

What does NTC Mean?

Thermistors measure temperature by measuring the resistance of the electrical energy passing through the thermistor which is relative to temperature. Negative Temperature Coefficient defines that as the resistance decreases the temperature increases and vice versa. Positive Temperature Coefficient...

Webinar – LMSMA from Wachendorff

Positions, speeds and lengths can be measured reliably and efficiently with the new measuring system LMSMA from WACHENDORFF. WACHENDORFF has significantly optimised the adjustment possibilities of the systems, which are based on a spring arm with a central spring. This results in numerous...

Sensor Vs Transducer

So, what are the differences between the two devices? The main difference is the output signal – a sensor will give an output in the same format as the signal was received whereas the transducer will take the signal, transform it into different measurement and give this as the...
