Load Cells

A Load Cell is a particular kind of transducer or sensor which converts force into a measurable electrical output. Your typical load cell device consists of four strain gauges in a wheatstone bridge configuration. In an industrial scale this conversion consists of a load being transformed into an analog electrical signal. While there are many different types of load cells, the strain gage load cell is the classical design. In this type of load cell, the conversion is accomplished by the physical deformation of strain gages which are bonded into the load cell beam and wired into a wheatstone bridge configuration.

Compression Load Cells Compression/Tension Load Cells

Compression Load CellsCompression load cells often have an integral button design. They are ideal for mounting where space is restricted and offer excellent long term stability.

Tension Load CellsCompression/tension load cells can be used for applications where the load may go from tension to compression and vice versa. They are ideal for space restricted environments. Threaded ends facilitate easy installation.

S-Beam Load Cells Bending Beam Load Cells

S-Beam Load Cells S-Beam load cells get their name from their S shape. S-Beam load cells can provide an output if under tension or compression. Applications include tank level, hoppers and truck scales. They provide superior side load rejection.

Bending Beam Load CellsDetect weight by bending and are used in multiple load cell applications from tank weighing to industrial process control. They feature low profile construction for integration into restricted areas.

Platform and Single Point Load Cells Canister Load Cells

Platform and Single Point Load Cells Platform and single point load cells are used to commercial and industrial weighing systems. They provide accurate readings regardless of the position of the load on the platform.

Canister Load CellsCanister load cells are used for single and multi-weighing applications. Many feature an all stainless steel design and are hermetically sealed for washdown and wet areas.

Low Profile Load Cells

Low Profile Load CellsCompression and tension/compression load cells. Mounting holes and female threads provide easy installation. Used frequently in weighing research and in-line force monitoring.
