Why isn’t there any signal change when force is applied to the load cell roll?

Marko Sydanlammi

ABB's answer

When there is no sensitivity, there are two possible reasons:
1. The resultant force component is perpendicular to the measuring direction. If there is no
force component in the measuring direction, there will be no output signal change.
2. Either the load cell cable or the superior system has not been connected correctly to the
electronics. Cables should be checked for damages and the connections should be checked
with respect to the corresponding cable diagram. Note that the load cell orientation, with
respect to the force direction, has influence on the signal polarity.
