Weighing Sensors & Load Cells

Load Cells and Weighing Sensors are transducers that convert force into an electronic signal.

Load cells and Weighing Sensors convert a load or force into an electronic output. This electronic output can be a current change, a frequency change or a voltage change, depending on the type of load cell and circuitry used. Each sensor is comprised of a durable material such as steel with one or more strain gauges attached to or embedded in it. A strain gauge consists of a wire (or wires) that transmits a mild electric current. Weighing sensors can be either compression or tension based or bi-directional. 

We offer Load Cells in various shapes and sizes for diverse applications.
