Load Cell Simulator Calibration Requirements to Calibrate my Digital Indicator: Is it Worth it? 

Load Cell Simulator Calibration Requirements to Calibrate my Digital Indicator: Is it Worth it? We have been asked a bit more frequently lately about the benefits of calibrating everything as a system versus calibrating the load cells and indicators separately and intermixing them using a calibrated load cell simulator. Being able to intermix any load […]

True Cost of Long Force Calibration Lead Times

The True Cost of Long Force Calibration Lead Time How much revenue are you sacrificing when you do not have your equipment? How much is lost from not being able to turn our force calibration equipment around for your customers? Do you end up losing a customer or job because you do not have the […]

How to Correct for Tare Weight when using Load Cells or Proving Rings

How to Correct for Tare Weight when using Load Cells or Proving Rings A common question we get asked is, “If I have a tare weight, how do I correct it?” Thus, we are going to answer the questions by discussing  How to Correct Tare Weight when using Load Cells or Proving Rings. All instruments […]

Top 5 Specifications to Consider for Load Cell Accuracy

One of the most important considerations when purchasing a load cell is its accuracy. However, a load cell datasheet typically does not contain all the specifications needed to determine an accuracy statement. Which specification on a typical datasheet is most important? Do all specifications impact accuracy? Does it matter how the specification is expressed? The […]

5 Top Considerations to answer What is my load cell accuracy?

What is my load cell accuracy? At Morehouse, we are frequently asked about Accuracy, with a question such as “What is the accuracy of this system you offer for sale?” or "What is the load cell accuracy?" At first glance, it should be an easy question to answer, and, indeed, we could simply give a […]

Load Cell Troubleshooting

In the last Back-to-Basics blog, I covered Types of Load Cells. As I continue to cover basic concepts for beginners, this blog details how to troubleshoot a load cell. 7 Step Process for Troubleshooting a Load Cell Have you ever wasted hours troubleshooting a non-working load cell to diagnose the problem? Morehouse technicians have seen […]

Does a Backup Load Cell Meter for Your Load Cell System Make Sense?

Does a Backup Load Cell Meter for Your Load Cell System Make Sense? Backup Load Cell Meter - Reason Why On Might be Needed A client has four load cells on one meter and the technician loses, drops, or breaks the current indicator. This is a scenario we see happen quite a bit. If Murphy […]

The top 3 things to consider when purchasing a load cell

The top 3 things to consider when purchasing a load cell Usefulness may be the one word we often neglect to consider when purchasing force-measuring equipment, or any test equipment. Let's think about that for a bit and let it sink in. Most people I have run across seem to be concerned with price, a […]

Converting an mV/V load cell signal into Engineering Units: Why this may be the most accurate and cost-effective way to use a calibration curve

mV/V Load Cell - Understanding what mV/V is and how does it relate to load cells Most bridge-based sensors typically specify a rated output Sensitivity (R.O.) shown in figure 1 below. This Rated Output is generally found under Electrical specifications. It is usually in mV/V, where mV/V is the ratio of the output voltage to […]
