Donut Load Cells
Donut load cells are a variation of a low profile compression load cell, and feature a through-hole design to allow installation around bolts or shafts. From small “load washers” to heavy duty industrial donuts with large inside diameters, these specialized load cells are widely used to measure clamping forces, bolt loading, and overload monitoring. Donut load cells from tecsis are offered in ranges from 100 g up to 100,000 lbs and deliver accuracy from 0.25% to 0.50%. Standard output is mV/V, with amplified output available via internal or in-line amplifiers. These donut load cells use proven strain gage technology combined with fully welded stainless steel construction and high overload capability to provide reliable performance in all applications.
