These Load Cell Sensors, rated at 1kg, are intelligently designed devices that utilise a strain gauge to measure how much force is being exerted downwards (or whichever direction the green arrow on the side is facing). It achieves this with tiny little circuits built into the housing block, which deform under weights of up to 1kg. The intensity of deformity therefore defines how much force is being applied, and this value is sent digitally to an interface module.

These devices are most commonly used for kitchen or jewellery scales, as they provide impressive accuracy without any moving parts (only bending parts). This solid state style means it cannot get clogged up or jammed like old spring scales, while the digital output allows for more modern interfaces as well.

This load cell is designed to be used with our HX711 Load Cell Sensor Interface Module, and is often purchased alongside our IOT Devices for automated stocking systems.

Please Note: These 4-Wire Load Cells have been pre-calibrated during the manufacturing process. As such, it’s imperative that you never cut, shorten or otherwise modify the cables that are included, as this will affect the resistance of the sensor, resulting in inaccurate weight measurements.

Typical Applications for these 1kg Parallel Beam Load Cell Sensors:

These 1kg Load Cell Sensors are most commonly used by our customers to make scales to measure jewellery, electronics parts and other small objects weighing under 1kg. However, these could also be used for automation, to sense when Nuts and Bolts or other small parts are running low, and order more online via IOT Devices. This not only adds convenience to the standard restocking process, but also ensures you never even have to think about it aside from the actual task of filling up the containers with the stock that arrives at your door.

As a side note, this type of automated ordering system is also perfect for ensuring you never run out of your favourite snacks, which is how we like to use “Internet Of Things” Devices in our own offices.
