Products : Load Cells : Tension & Compression Load Cells : STA-3 Alloy Steel S-Type Tension and Compression Load Cell

STA-3 Alloy Steel S-Type Tension and Compression Load Cell



  • Ranges 50, 100, 200, 300, 500, 1000kg
  • Alloy steel nickel plated construction
  • Environmentally sealed to IP67
  • Can be supplied complete with mating spherical rod-end bearings

The STA-3 series load cell is ideal for measuring both tensile and compressive forces. The standard metric threads at each end of the load cell are designed to accept standard spherical seating rod-end bearing.

The STA-3 is suitable for many applications where a tension and compression load cell is required, in harsh environments. Applications such as vessel weighing, material test machines and dynamometers area few examples.

This range of products is ideally suited for many other OEM applications, offering a highly cost effective solution for a wide variety of applications.

The STA-3 series can be supplied on it's own or combined with our extensive range of instrumentation to provide a complete load monitoring system.
