Button Load Cell

Button Load Cells are strain gage based transducers with temperature compensation and excellent overall performance. This type provides a range of capacities up to 150 kN or 30 klb with better than ±0.5% (full scale) non-linearity. Three tapped holes are provided on the underside for ease of mounting. Fully welded cover, amplified and digitised versions are available on request.

Model number: ALBM
