Load Cell Transducers

Measure Tension and Compression from 0.35 oz to 10,000 lbs

Pancake Load Cell | S Beam Load Cell | Compatible Data Acquisition Systems

DATAQ Instruments has partnered with sensor manufacturer Futek to offer a variety of load cells at factory-direct prices. These load cells have been specifically chosen for compatibility with our popular line of data loggers and data acquisition systems that support 5B and 8B amplifier modules. We've done the legwork to ensure compatibility, and a complete load cell-to-instrument solution. Load cells are available in two primary configurations: Pancake and S-beam.

Pancake Load Cell Product Highlights

Pancake load cells may be used to measure both tension and compression for capacities of 500 to 10,000 pounds of force. Load cells in this category feature a tough anodized aluminum or stainless steel exterior with eight bolt-down holes, a low profile design, and US or Metric thread configurations. Pancake load cells are available with or without a tension base.

Low profile pancake type load cell (LCF450 Series)Low profile pancake type load cell (LCF450 Series)

Model LCF450 is a Pancake Load Cell designed for both tension and compression applications. The flexure has eight bolt-down holes along its outer diameter for easy mounting. Capacities range from 500 to 10,000 lbf.

Low profile pancake type load cell with tension base (LCF455 Series)Low profile pancake type load cell with tension base (LCF455 Series)

Model LCF455 is a Pancake Load Cell (Tension Base) designed for tension and compression applications. The LCF455 is comparable to the LCF450 but includes a tension base, making it suitable for inline applications on actuators or threaded assemblies. Capacities range from 300 to 10,000 lbf.

S-beam Load Cell Product Highlights

Our S-beam load cells offer an extremely compact design that is perfectly suited to platform, silo, and scaling applications.

Miniature S-beam load cells (LSB200 Series)Miniature S-beam load cells (LSB200 Series)

The height of the LSB200 is only 0.75", making it perfect for applications with limited space. The LSB200 is used in medical bag weighing applications, automated feed back control applications, inline processing applications, and more. Capacities range from 0.7 ounces to 100lbf.

Higher capacity S-beam load cells (LSB302 Series)Higher capacity S-beam load cells (LSB302 Series)

The S Beam Load Cell offers a compact design for platforms, silos, or scales. Capacities range from 25 to 300 lbf.
