I'd like to use load cells on my homebrew setup to measure the weight of the pots. I'm expecting 175 lb (80 kg) max. I'm trying to decide which load cell to use. So seems like I should use three 50 kg load cells. That brings me to decision between the 3135_0
Shear Load Cell or the 3136_0
Compression Load Cell. The shear load cell is significantly cheaper, but the compression load cell seems like it would give me more flexibility in pot size and location on the load cell.
Does anyone have an opinion on which might be better for this application?
