Small in size but not in performance, OMEGA’s LCKD Series subminiature compression load cells are designed to measure load ranges from 1 kg to 1000 lb. Rugged all stainless steel construction and high performance strain gages assure superior linearity and stability. All models include a 5-pt NIST traceable calibration to assure an accurate installation.
Temperature compensation is achieved through a miniature circuit board which is included in the load cell’s cable. These units are designed to be mounted on a smooth, flat surface.

The LCKD is also available in metric configurations, with ranges from 0-10 to 0-5,000 N. Please see the LCMKD in related items below for complete details, or contact our Pressure department for more information..

I have a tight fit in an existing location for the LCKD-500. What is tolerance on the diameter and overall height of this sensor?

Asked by: KDickens
Hello, Tolerance will be DEC: XX +/- 0.01 AND XXX: +/- 0.005

What is the resolution of the LCKD series and LMCKD series? What is the accuracy of the sensors?

Asked by: Esau
Combined accuracy of the LCKD/LCMKD Series load cell is 0.37% of the full scale range. Resolution depends on the how small of a signal change the instrumentation you are using to read the output signal can detect.
