ALF250 Miniature Load Cell

Miniature diaphragm loadcell

About the ALF250 Miniature Load Cell

The ALF250 is ideally suited to force measurements in confined spaces in both tension and compression for control of critical parameters in all kinds of industrial processes. Their versatility is such that they are also applied in a great number of important fields of scientific and engineering test work, mobile as well as workshop, static and dynamic.

We are happy to design variants of this loadcell to meet your specific requirements. Please consult our engineering department.

Geometry: Very small loadbutton cell for force measurement in confined spaces. Used in compression and/or tension on a wide range of OEM or end-user applications.

With bi-directional versions there is a small difference between the output signal for compression and tension. All standard bi-directional loadcells are calibrated in both modes and the output for each direction is stated on the test / calibration certificate.
