Metric Universal Load Cells

The Metric Universal Load Cells are simply Universal Load Cells designed for tension/compression force measurements, with the difference being they are designed to interface with metric loading rods/hardware and they are calibrated in SI units.


The structures of the load cells are simple and compact, consisting of an inner loading hub and an outer supporting flange bridged smoothly by a uniformly continuous solid shear web avoiding structural stress risers. Strainsert gages are installed and sealed inside small gage holes along the neutral axis of the web.

Low deflection and high natural frequency of the load cell are obtained, along with high resistance to extraneous forces. Mechanical and dynamic properties of load cells are fully tabulated.

Linearity and symmetry of output signal in tension and compression are obtained by equal straining of all shear gages in the bridge circuit of the Load Cell®.

See general load cell link for general product information and specifications.
