CM series load cells are strain gauge transducers used to measure loads in static and dynamic applications, in compression, with high accuracy.
They are machined from a single block of metal, so the primary sensing element, the mountings and the case contain no welds allowing smaller dimensions and an enhanced grade of protection. The configuration of the point of measurement, with 8 strain gauges, reduces errors caused by imperfect applications of the load.
Typical applications of load cells connected in parallel are: silos, hoppers, large weighing platforms.
The stainless steel construction is suitable for use in aggressive environments in the chemical and petrochemical industries.
