When you need a load cell for your equipment, it helps to have a range of capacities so you can get the job done right. A load cell is a transducer that is used to convert force into electrical signal. At Cooper Instruments & Systems, our load cells are tough, durable and we have the widest selection of load cells available, from subminiature gram load cells to paper thin sensors, to high-accuracy strain gauge load cells, to 1 million pound load cells that are built for precision to multiple other high-range load cells.

Types of Load Cells

Just a few different types of load cells that we can proudly offer at the highest quality include:

  • Universal Load Cell: These components can accurately measure forces in tension and compression in high-control situations.
  • Low-Capacity Load Cell: For low-range load, force and weight, you still need high-end instrumentation for accuracy. Our inventory has several low-capacity load cells with several configuration options.
  • Pancake Load Cell: These units offer high precision without load-condition sensitivity.
  • Donut Load Cells: Also called thru-hole, these donut-shaped load cells are used for bolt force measurement, post or leg mount, clamping force and more. They’re highly accurate and offer high stiffness for applications that require off-center, compression or press loading.
  • Wireless Load Cell System: In almost any industry, it’s possible to find yourself in situations where you can’t maneuver the necessary cables to work with your load cell, or running them could cause damage or cost too much. A wireless load cell system can prove useful in a variety of circumstances.

 

Calibration Services

We do more than just manufacture and distribute load cells. We also offer calibration services with Z540, A2LA certification test standards through our partners so your current equipment stays precise. We use three-point, two-run and five-point single-run processes to test for nonlinearity and hysteresis performance and repeatability, all of which are NIST traceable.

When you opt into one of our contracts for one, two or three years at a locked price, you’ll even get a discount. If you don’t want to keep track of your equipment yourself, we can do it for you and send you calibration due date reminders.
