More information about how a load cell works in this link.
Small in size but not in performance, OMEGA’s LCMKD Series compression load cells are designed to measure load ranges from 10 to 5,000 Newtons. Rugged all stainless steel construction and high performance strain gauges assure superior linearity and stability. Temperature compensation is achieved through a miniature circuit board which is included in the cable. These units are designed to be mounted on a smooth, flat surface.
The LCMKD is also available in imperial configurations, with 0-5 to 0-1,000 lb ranges.
Please see the LCKD for complete details, or contact our Technical Sales department for more information.
