Load cells, also known as force transducers, convert a specific type of mechanical force—typically tension, torque, compression, or pressure—into an output signal. This output signal is then transmitted via a load cell cable to the scale indicator where the precise weight can be measured and read by the operator. Load cells are a key component of digital scales ranging from the smallest pocket scales to high precision laboratory balances, to heavy-capacity scales like floor scales and truck scales.
At Scales Plus, we carry many different types of load cells, each with a specific design and purpose. We have original replacement load cells for a majority of scale manufacturers and compatible alternatives from load cell brands including Rice Lake Weighing Systems, Anyload, Sensortronics, Celltron, and more. From individual single-ended beam load cells and compression disk load cells, to high-capacity weigh modules and kits, Scales Plus has you covered.
