Where data integrity is an essential requirement and space limited, then dual bridge load cells from transducer specialists RDP Electronics Ltd can offer an effective answer.
For critical structural testing and monitoring in the aeronautics and automotive industries, for example, a load cell with two separate and independent sets of strain gauges combines sensor redundancy within a single unit. This permit two sets of signal conditioning electronics to be deployed so that in the event of failure of one, the second signal conditioning set maintains system integrity until the fault can be rectified. Additionally, under normal operating conditions, the two outputs can be compared for greater certainty of data integrity, allowing rapid diagnosis of any faults.
RDP’s dual bridge load cells not only provide an accurate, reliable solution but also are cost effective thanks to the dual outputs.
