Cantilever Load Cells

Bending Beam Load Cell

Bending beam, or cantilever, load cells are rugged and highly accurate and suitable for a wide variety of both static and dynamic weighing and force measuring applications. The unique bending beam design measures loads and forces with ±0.1% accuracy (FSO, combined) over ranges from 25 grams to 10,000 lbs.

Shear Beam Load Cell

Shear Beam load cells look similar to bending beam cells, with the same low profile and small footprint. However, instead of bending the beam which contains the sensing elements, the structure of the load cell is designed to place that beam into shear. The result is a compact yet high range load cell for both static and dynamic weighing applications. Shear beam load cells deliver ±0.03% accuracy FSO (combined) over ranges up to 22,500 pounds. Variations of this design are found in precision load applications such as hopper and tank weighing, crane weighing, platform scales, truck scales, and silo weighing.

Parallelogram Load Cell

The parallelogram load cell is a unique double-cantilever beam design which provides a compact unit with ±0.02% repeatability, integral overload protection, and a high tolerance for off-center loading. The highly sensitive parallelogram configuration delivers outstanding performance in both tension and compression applications up to 500 pounds. This economical load cell is packaged for OEM process applications and is not a sealed unit.
