What is the Best Way to Check the Functionality of my ElectroPuls™ Load Cell?

Instron load cells are robust and built to last. Therefore, checking the load cell’s functionality on a daily basis is not usually necessary unless you suspect a real problem. That being said, it is always a good idea to be safe than sorry!

To safely assess the functionality of your load cell, you can simply place or hang a known mass from the load cell to verify that the actual reading corresponds to the value of the mass. A mass of 20Kg or more is usually the safest bet for an ElectroPuls E1000 and  E3000. You can always contact Instron support if you suspect you are having issues with your load cell. Remember: make sure you set appropriate limits whenever conducting any kind of test or load cell reading!
