Abstract:In this paper, a micromachined silicon load cell (force sensor) is presented for measuring loads up to 500 kg. The load cell has been realized and tested. Measurement results show a hysteresis error of ±0.02 % of full-scale. Creep at 500 kg after 30 minutes is within 0.01 %. These measurements show that the performance has improved by a factor of 10 compared to the previous design.
