Lets say that a load cell has these specifications:
- Rated Load = 500 g
- Rated output = 1 mV/V
- Excitation voltage = 12 V
- Creep = 0.02 %FS / min
Then the output range should be 0--12 mV.
Does %FS mean out of the maximum of the output voltage range? That is FS = 12 mV
Then the creep could be converted to 0.0002 * 12 mV/min = 2.4 μV/min?
EDIT: Of course it should be 0.0002 * 12 mV/min and not 0.02 * 12 mV/min. But then I got the original question answered, FS stands for the maximum rated output voltage.
