Accelerometers/Load Cells

Accelerometers/Load Cells

An accelerometer is an electromechanical device that will measure acceleration forces. These forces may be static, like the constant force of gravity pulling at your feet, or they could be dynamic – caused by moving or vibrating the accelerometer.

A load cell is a transducer which converts force into a measurable electrical output. Although there are many varieties of load cells, strain gauge based load cells are the most commonly used type.
