2013-02-18 13:07:11 - Load cell manufacturer and design company, LCM Systems Ltd, announces the launch of a new low capacity, highly accurate S-Type tension/compression load cell.
LCM Systems, one of the UK’s leading designers, manufacturers and suppliers of load cells and instrumentation is pleased to announce the launch of a new addition to its STA series of S-Type tension/compression load cells. The STA-7 fills a gap in the market for an easy to use small, highly accurate, low capacity load cell with integral overload stops. Typical applications include hanging scales, material test machines, motor dynamometers and general force measurement.
There are 6 standard versions of the new STA-7 load cell with rated loads of 1, 2 5, 10, 25 and 50kg. A unique feature of these load cells is that integral tension and compression overload stops are supplied as standard on all ranges up to 5kg. This
means that the load cells are protected against accidental damage up to 500% of the load cell range.
Each load cell is manufactured in lightweight aluminium alloy, weighs only 300g and is supplied with standard metric threads at each end that are designed to accept universal mating spherical rod-end bearings.
For straightforward application advice, LCM Systems’ experienced in-house design engineers are only a phone call or email away and the STA-7 can be supplied on their own or combined with LCM Systems’ comprehensive range of instrumentation to provide a complete load monitoring system.
A free downloadable datasheet is available from the LCM Systems website at www.lcmsystems.com/sta7data
