Universal Load cells possess advantages of low profile and high stability, are ideal for structual and fatique testing applications. Low height, high accuracy universal load cells for tension and compression measurement are compact designed ranging from 0.05 to 300 tonne and offer high natural requency. The stainless steel construction models ensure corrosion protection of grade IP66 or IP67 depending on customers’ demand. Typical applications for universal load cells include material testing in compression or tension, high capacity tension weighing and overhead weighing of cranes, compression weighing of hoppers, tanks and silos.
Loadcells using strain gauge based technology are used to measure physical properties of compression, tension, bending or shear.
