General Purpose Load Cells
We offer an array of general purpose load cell models designed to meet your complex and diverse testing needs. All offer excellent accuracy and value, and most operate in both tension and compression. Styles include:
Our low profile load cells feature an advanced structural design that makes them extremely durable, accurate and resistant to large extraneous shear and moment loads. To perform in a linear and predictable manner, the outside diameter of the load cell must be bolted to a flat rigid surface. To ensure that they can also be properly mounted in applications where there is no flat rigid surface, they include a factory installed base that provides a convenient threaded attachment point for easy installation and use in both tension and compression. All low profile load cells are stocked with the mounting base installed, but we can remove the base upon request Standard capacities are 500, 1k, 2k, 5k, 12.5k, 25k, 50k, and 100k lbs.
Canister load cells are typically used in applications such as weighing, quality control, tactile forces, and static material test machines, Canister style load cells also include a built-in mounting base for a simplified installation in both tension and compression applications. Standard capacities are 25, 50, 100, 200, and 300 lbs.
Our rod-end load cells are designed for integration into tension measurement in applications such as process automation, quality assurance, and production monitoring. We also offer a sphere and clevis style model, which is particularly effective for off-axis/side loading applications due to their excellent bending strength. They are versatile, durable, and fit easily into small spaces such as inline with vehicle tie rods. Standard capacities are 500, 1k, 2k, 5k,10k, and 20k lbs.
S-Type load cells are accurate strain gage based sensors used for weighing and general force measurement applications. All models come with a six-foot integral cable with pigtail leads, which are stripped and tinned for electrical interface. Standard capacities are 50, 100, 250, 500, 1k, 2k, and 5k lbs.
Fatigue Rated Low Profile
Fatigue rated load cells are specifically designed for component durability and fatigue test machines where highly cyclical loading is present. These rugged load cells are extremely resistant to extraneous bending and side loading forces. They are used for material testing, component life cycle testing and structural testing. All fatigue rated load cells are guaranteed against fatigue failure for 100 million fully reversed cycles.
Fatigue Rated Low Profile Dual Bridge
Our high accuracy dual bridge load cells have two electrically isolated outputs, a feature that offers sensor redundancy and the ability to provide control feedback from one output while the other is used for data acquisition. Additional features include compensation for temperature, moment loading, and atmospheric pressure changes, as well as excellent repeatability. All dual bridge load cells include a factory installed mounting base which is intended to be permanently installed as it is required for our stringent performance specifications. Standard capacities are 5k, 12.5k, 25k, 50k, and 100k lbs.
