Enter the rated output (kg) and the percent of rated output accuracy (%) into the Load Cell Accuracy Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Load Cell Accuracy. 

Load Cell Accuracy Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Load Cell Accuracy.

LCA = +/- RO*%/100

Variables:

  • LCA is the Load Cell Accuracy (kg)
  • RO is the rated output (kg) 
  • % is the percent of rated output accuracy (%) 

How to Calculate Load Cell Accuracy?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Load Cell Accuracy.


  1. First, determine the rated output (kg). 
  2. Next, determine the percent of rated output accuracy (%). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = LCA = +/- RO*%/100.
  4. Finally, calculate the Load Cell Accuracy.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

rated output (kg) = 1000

percent of rated output accuracy (%) = 3

LCA = +/- RO*%/100 = ?
