All-Round Shackle Load Cell

Shakle Load Cell


Shackle Load Cells are designed for lifting and weighing in rugged or harsh environments. They provide a simple and reliable method of measuring a wide range of weights and loads. The shackle load cell consists of a shakle and a force transducer.

These units use modern Thin Film technology for consistent performance with outstanding long-term stability, and no creep characteristics. The Wheatstone bridge is atomically joined to the sensor by a sputter process and the result is a rugged load cell ideal for this demanding application.

The shackle load cells are simple to install and are available in standard shackle sizes.
