Sensor Developments, Inc. Datasheets for Load Cells

Load cells are force sensors that often incorporate mechanical packaging to fit into testing and monitoring systems. They can be used for tension, compression, and/or shear measurement, and can be configured to measure force or load along one or more axes.
