    The TR150 by Applied Measurements is a high-resolution handheld load cell indicator designed to work with all types of load cell and strain gauge-based transducers.

    The TR150 handheld load cell indicator features a 7-digit LCD display which makes it suitable for any monitoring application from general industrial up to high accuracy reference standards.  Other features include peak & trough capture, display update rates up to 25Hz, display hold/freeze, shunt calibration and optionally an RS232 serial data output.

    Our load cell display has a dual-range facility allowing for calibration in two different engineering units, i.e. Newtons and kg.  Alternatively, it is possible to calibrate two separate load cells or strain gauge sensors with a single TR150 load cell display.

    The TR150 handheld load cell digital display is housed in a robust IP65 enclosure and powered by 2x ‘AA’ batteries that provide up to 450 hours of continuous operation in low power mode with a 350Ω load cell or strain gauge bridge connected.

    TEDS is now only available on our new TRX strain gauge load cell display, which is in stock and available to buy online.

    Applied Measurements supplied our company with a highly accurate button load cell and handheld indicator for our plate bearing tests. The customer service we received during this purchase was impeccable and friendly, resulting in our companies being in contact ever since.

      5 Reasons This May Be the Best Load Cell for Plate Bearing Tests

      Micro Geotechnical, an in-situ testing company, needed to accurately monitor the bearing capacity of the ground under a given load, to determine the safe bearing capacity of the soil. The measuring instruments would need to be accurate and precise, with the ability to withstand the harsh outdoor environments of their in-situ plate bearing tests. So, we offered them Applied Measurements button load cell CBES and our handheld indicator and here's why...


      Clark Masts Tensile Testing

      Complete Tensile Monitoring System Delivered in Under 1 Week

      With huge capacities of up to 30,000kg and an accuracy of <±0.03% of the rated capacity, the highly accurate DBBSM S-beam load cell really is the knight in stainless steel armour. Not only can it efficiently handle the larger loads in the guys, it can also be supplied in less than 1 week! Its tough construction makes it ideal to use in the harsh outdoor conditions on the guy cables.
