Pillar compression load cells

Pillar compression load cells

Strainstall’s pillar load cells are highly adaptable to a large number of applications including challenging environments.

These high strength stainless steel compression load cells are fully environmentally protected making them both reliable and durable.

Each pillar load cell is fitted with a domed loading cap to greatly reduce the effect of offset loads and a base plate can be supplied for mounting purposes. The load cell’s cable is fitted via an integral connector to allow for on-site mating, removing the need for handling large lengths of heavy duty cable whilst positioning the load cells.
