Model RLS Single-Point Compression Load Cell

Low cost
Very high accuracy
Infinite resolution



A load cell or force sensor is a device which converts load or force into an electrical signal.

A single-point compression load cell is designed for such applications as weighing scales.

Care should be taken to ensure that the load sensor is not exposed to load or force in excess of its capability. The range of compression load cell selected should therefore be appropriate for the maximum force (including transient forces) that can be applied to it.

This series of transducer is a strain gauge type transducer and has a mV output which may require an amplifier. We can offer a variety of high quality, low noise and high precision strain gauge amplifiers.
