First time here, so I might make a few mistakes. :) I would like to use a load cell (+Amplifier+Arduino) for the construction of a new test bench. This bench is supposed to test how mechanical parts behave after a long time. I am wondering about the life span of my load cell. For one test, I would like to apply a 1800N force for about 100 000 times with a frequency around 1Hz. I would like to be able to repeat this test a lot.
Do you think the normal Load Cell from Sparkfun will do the job ? https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13332 It's not a problem if I have to calibrate it every 10 tests, but I would like something that lasts long.
I've also tried to find some answers across forums but the best I could find was this topic: https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=113534.0 and it just talks about creep (which is not very relevant in my case due to the frequency of the force) Thanks a lot ! Arthur
