Miniature Load Cell  (Tension and Compression)

Miniature Load Cell
Model: 131
  • 5 lb to 1000 lb
  • All-Welded Stainless Steel
  • Calibration in Tension and Compression 
  • Bonded Strain Gages                    

The Model 131 has an internal beam type of sensing element with welded stabilizing diaphragms to minimize off axis loading errors.
The top mounting stud on the low ranges is removable with optional thread sizes.
