Low profile compression load cell

Low profile compression load cell

Strainstall’s low profile load cells are ideal for a range of structural and industrial applications where height may be limited and high accuracy is important.

They have a high resistance to offset loads which is particularly useful in industrial weighing applications where true central loading cannot be guaranteed.

Manufactured from high tensile stainless steel, the standard fixing arrangement includes six counter bored holes with an optional base plate that enables the low profile load cells to become an integral part of the structures they are monitoring.

Our load cells can also be supplied with centrally bored or tapped holes for more specialist installations.
