Load Cells are machined of stainless or nickel alloy plated steel and are designed to determine compression or tension measurements. Loads are measured to an accuracy of less than 0.0300% strain. The “S” type load cells are available in seven different capacities ranging from 500-20,000 lbf. Load cell dimensions range from 2.4x2.0in3.9x 2.9in, WxH depending on capacity of the load cell. Threaded mounting holes are located on both top and bottom of the load cell and vary in size; 1/2in-20 threads per inch for 500-2,000lbf load cells, 3/4in-16 threads per inch for 5,000-10,000lbf load cells and 1in-14 threads per inch for the 20,000lbf load cell.
