Our SLC13 load cell or force sensor is a device which converts load or force into an electrical signal.
Care should be taken to ensure that the model SLC13 load sensor is not exposed to load or force in excess of its capability. The range of model SLC13 compression load cell selected should therefore be appropriate for the maximum force (including transient forces) that can be applied to it.
One particular feature of this transducer is its very small size
The SLC13 transducer is a strain gauge type transducer and has a mV output which may require an amplifier. For the SLC13 we can offer a variety of high quality, low noise and high precision strain gauge amplifiers.
Miniature compression load cell
The SLC13 load cell should be mounted on a hard, flat surface. Our SLC13 compression load cell measures the force applied to the load button.
