Small in size and capable of providing highly accurate readings, the LCFD Series miniature load cells are precision subminiature load cells for industrial applications requiring a small size and high accuracy. They are all stainless steel, measure both tension and compression loads and have male thread studs for load attachment. The exclusive internal design provides superior long term stability and minimizes the effects of small off-axis loads. Compatible Meters: DP41-S and DP25B-S

The LCFD is also available in metric configurations, with ranges from 0-10 to 0-5,000 N and metric threads. Please see the LCMFD for complete details, or contact our Pressure department for more information..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Load cell has the right features. Although the load cell is just right for our application, the company inventory management system is flawed. I waited a whole month for the product to enter inventory. Meanwhile, we were without data in a major part of our research project.

Does it work well with PLC without noises?? Do we need a specific omega amplifier for this or any amplifier will do ?

Asked by: Tibra
Thank you for this inquiry, this unit has a 2mv/V output. Most PLC systems require a amplified output of 0-5 volts or 4-20mA. You can search for Signal Conditioners on our site and choose the one that works best for your application.
