The StrainCell 360° strain sensor for the subsequent weighing of silos and industrial plants.
The calculation of the tonnage in silos and industrial plants works frequently by a complexcalculation of geometrical and bulk-specific factors in relation to the distance. 25 years experience of Gerhard Middendorf in level measurement technology justified the launch of the company Strain Systems Europe GmbH to comply with the interest of users in avoiding complicated operations and complex formulas. Ultimately there is only one interesting figure: the tonnage. Transmitter convert the stretching and compression monitoring directly into tons. The display only shows what is relevant: How many tons were taken? How many are still present? How many can be refilled and when? StrainCell is the solution for another, prevalent problem in sensor technology, the effects of temperature on the measured values. With its technical and physical structure and the central mounting StrainCell measures force actions like conventional load cells in 360°. It is mechanically and electronically temperature-compensated and therefor superior to all strain gauges and L-shaped sensors. With its´measurement accuracy of at most 1-3%, StrainCell is the perfect alternative to the more costly load cell technology and therefor the most precise measurement technology available - worldwide!
