A few of the primary products and services we provide include:

    • Load Cells: We sell every type of load cell, including beam, S-beam, subminiature, compact, canister, pancake, donut, tension, compression and platform load cells. These devices give an electrical output signal proportional to applied force or weight. We have the advantage over the competition with our unique ability to offer a range of load cell capacities from zero to 10 grams to zero to 3 million pounds, as well as competitive pricing to meet your budget.
    • Calibration Services: Whether you originally purchased your instruments from us or not, our expert technicians provide precision calibration for pressure, load and torque sensors with optional test standards traceable to NIST Z540 with A2LA certification through one of our partners. Our top priority is ongoing accuracy, so we offer discounts if you sign up for a contract for one, two or three years at a guaranteed price. We’ll even send automatic reminders for calibration due dates to keep your instruments accurate without you putting the time in to keep track.
    • Pressure Transducers/Gauges: Most often used to convert gas or liquid media into an electrical signal, these sensors and gauges are required in several industrial work processes. We offer countless styles, like units with flush diaphragm pressure ports and standard NPT, absolute and differential pressure measurement and gauge transducers. With transducers from 0.5 psi to 60,000 psi and a variety of outputs like voltage, current and millivolt, Cooper Instruments & Systems can offer what you need.
    • Test Stands: We sell a T-Rex test stand that accommodates several materials and components. With the capacity for four tons in tension and 10 in compression, it can complete extraction force tests, mechanical connection tests, verification of adhesive bond strength and other processes for concrete, adhesives, foils, paper, wood and more. Our tables can come with custom qualities and optional components for customers with specific job needs that the original table won’t work for.
