STA-5 Stainless Steel S-Type Tension and Compression Load Cell

The STA·5 series load cell is ideal for measurlng 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·5 is suitable for many applications where a tension and compression load cell is required, for high accuracy measurements. Applications such as vessel weighing, material test machines and dynamometers area few examples.

The STA·5 series can be supplied on it's own or combined with our extensive range of instrumentation to provide a complete load monitoring system.
