The LCM series of Compression Load Cells are designed for general use and are suitable for use in laboratories or in permanent outdoor installations.
The CPA series are built to exacting standards and are suitable for use in exposed installations, with versions being available for full immersion in water. There are many special options, which have been previously supplied, including, domed top (supplied with or without loading cap), integral carry handles, mounting base integral connectors, and internal analogue/digital signal amplifiers. The standard product is constructed from stainless steel.
The CPA series can be supplied as shown in this datasheet or can be modified to meet a particular application requirement. We are always pleased to discuss any special requirements that can be accommodated. The CPA series can be supplied on it's own or combined with our extensive range of instrumentation to provide a complete load monitoring system
