By specification a load cell is an electronic instrument (a transducer) that is used to change a force into an electrical charge.

There is a massive variety of load cells today, most of which are better utilised in particular situations than others, for example the new compression load cell is employed for applications in tough environments. The new beam load cell is great for belt scales, platform scales, filling tool, and process instruments. Depending on needs and the type of weighing you are applying, you must choose the form of load cell to fill your needs.
