“S type” load cells are just one of the many different force/load cells we have available from our key suppliers, Vishay and Zemic.
Unlike other typical load cells they take their “S type” name from their shape, as you can see from the picture to the right, although occasionally some people do prefer the term “Z type”
The capacities of the S type load cells we can offer vary from 25kg up to around 30 tonnes primarily using metal foil strain gauge technology. They are a successful choice for applications as they provide accuracy and have compact design features. Installation using rod ends or load buttons mean that S type load cells give excellent performance in both tension and compression applications.
S type load cells are primarily used for mechanical-to-electronic scale conversions but are also used for many other different applications; here are some of the more popular applications for S type load cells that we have come into contact with.
The S type load cells that we offer can be found on the load cell section on our website. Many of these offer OIML and NTEP approval. Datasheets are available to view for all of the load cells on our website.
