HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED:
* If your fishing Line is REALLY rated to what it claims to be?
* If the sun, age and usage has decreased the integrity of your fishing line?
* If your fishing line purchase is really the strength of what you paid for?
DON'T WONDER ANYMORE!!!!!!
NOW YOU CAN TEST YOUR OWN FISHING LINE UP TO 25kg / 55lb with our NEW DIGITAL SCALE WITH LINE FORCE DYNAMOMETER!
The 25kg Digital Scale with line force dynamometer is designed to weigh fish upto 25kg/55lb and test the pull force upto 25kg/55lb and also has a temperature function.
It's light weight and takes 1 x CR 2032 battery which is included and ready to use.
Precision Manufacturing ensures that the Digital Scale with Line force Dynamometer accurately displays WEIGHTS OR PULL FORCE up to 25kg (also shows weights in LB, OZ), there is also an inbuilt temperature function.
The device will turn itself off automatically after several minutes of non-use : a great power saving feature
WHAT IS A DYNAMOMETER?
A dynamometer or “dyno” for short, is a device for measuring force, moment of force (torque), or power.
WHAT MAKES THIS DEVICE SO ACCURATE AT WEIGHING AND MEASURING FORCE?
The answer to this is a LOAD CELL. All electronic devices that weigh or measure force have
one as the key component. It makes the digital devices far superior to the old fashioned traditional spring loaded weights and measures.
WHAT IS A LOAD CELL?
Load cells convert force into an electrical signal and are an essential component of hanging scales, truck scales, railroad track scales, and many other medical and industrial weighing systems. The load cell sensor detects force and moves the strain gauge, which then measures the movement as an electrical signal that can be used to give power to the scale.
As per a dictionary, a load cell is described as a “weight measurement device necessary for electronic scales that display weights in digits.” However, load cell is not restricted to weight measurement in electronic scales. Load cell is a passive transducer or sensor which converts applied force into electrical signals. They are also referred to as “Load transducers”.
Load cells use different operating principles, viz.,
Load Cells based on fluid pressure
Load Cells based on elasticity
Load Cells based on magnetostriction effect or piezoelectric effect
Day-in and day-out we have been using electronic scales or weighing machines. You go to any grocery store or a jewellery shop; the items are weighed using electronic weighing machines. But, have we ever given a thought on the mechanism of the electronic scales?
At the heart of electronic scales or weighing machines is a sensor called load cell. These sensors sense the force (or weight) of the items and the electronic circuitry processes the sensors’ output and displays it on the indicator. Load cells are highly accurate transducers which provide the user with information not generally obtainable by other technology due to commercial factors.
Usage of load cell is not limited to electronics scales; they are used load testing machines, industrial scales, flow-meters, etc., though we hardly ever come in direct contact with the load cells. In short, load cell can be used wherever there is a requirement of “force measurement”. Bottom line: when precision is crucial, a load cell is the solution.
The only load cells which are prevalent are the load cells based on strain gages. Hence, the term ‘load cell’ means ‘strain gage-based load cells’. The reason behind the wide adoption of strain gage-based load cells is their characteristics
1. Highly precise and linear measurements
2. Little influence due to temperature changes.
3. Small size compared with other types of load cells.
4. Long operating life due to lack of moving parts or any parts that generate friction.
5. Ease in production due to small number of components.
6. Excellent fatigue characteristics
Strain gage load cells offer accuracies from within 0.03% to 0.25% full scale and are suitable for almost all industrial applications.
