Strainstall's hazardous area load cell amplifiers deliver a stronger signal between load cells and load indicators for applications in hazardous areas.

Designed for ease of installation and commissioning, Strainstall's amplifiers are used where stronger signals are required or a longer distance is needed between the load indicators and the load cells.

The amplifiers are housed in a variety of enclosures to suit different applications, including a large outer enclosure for multiple load cell use. Our DIN rail mounted load cell amplifier also includes IECEx certification.

Intrinsically safe:

The intrinsically safe 4-20mA in-cell amplifier is a programmable 2-wire amplifier which provides the additional features of temperature compensation and linearization.

Benefits of hazardous area amplifiers:

  • Designed and manufactured in the UK for high quality assurance
  • Robust construction for use in hostile environments
  • Easy to install, highly accurate and reliable
  • Supplied with full certification
  • Provides stronger signal between load indicator and load call
