In addition, it is imperative that the user selects the correct RTI load cell for the application and provide the necessary care for the load cell during its lifetime. Understanding these important issues and properly maintaining the Revere Transducers 5223 load cells will ensure trouble free weighing for a long period of time. Load cells may be damaged because of (shock) overloading, lightning strikes or heavy surges in current, chemical or moisture ingress, mishandling (dropping, lifting on cable, etc.), vibration, seismic events or internal component malfunctioning. Revere load cell selection in the context of trouble free operation concerns itself primarily with the right capacity, accuracy class and environmental protection, rather then with a particular measuring principle like bending, shear, compression or ring torsion. While saying this, it should also be recognized that a particular measuring principle might offer distinct advantages in terms of overload capabilities or the ease of mounting.
