Tension and Compression Load Cells | Universal Load Cells

Applied Measurements universal tension and compression load cells and universal force sensors are specially designed for the measurement of both tensile and compressive load, weight and force.  They can be used in mono-directional applications as well as those which cycle between tension and compression constantly.

Read More About Our Tension and Compression Load Cells
We have a range of different designs available to suit almost every conceivable application, from food and pharmaceutical process monitoring, tank weighing, and process control through to product development, fatigue testing and scientific experimentation.  Our selection of tension and compression load cells offer ranges from 0-25 grams to 0-1500 tonnes, with non-standard ranges available on request.  Universal load cell styles include S-Beams, canisters, columns, low profile, pancake and load pins.

All Applied Measurements tension and compression load cell models can be supplied with precision analogue or digital instrumentation including amplifiers and signal conditioners, signal digitisers, displays and indicators and wireless radio telemetry equipment.  Calibration traceable to UKAS standards is available on all tension and compression load cells and systems.

Applied Measurements tension and compression load cells and universal force sensors can be supplied with installation accessories including mounting bases and custom-designed fixtures.
