Compression Type Model SC

Compression Type Model SC


The SC shear beam load cell has been developed for use in high capacity, compression type electronic weight and force measurement applications in industrial environments. The precise and rugged SC load cell offers high resistance to side forces and overload conditions.

The SC load cells are suitable for severe industrial conditions and they find application in high capacity vehicle scales, platform scales, tank weighing systems, automatic weighing instruments and process weighing applications. With its steel alloy construction coated with corrosion-retardant paint as well as its strain gauge area welded with a stainless steel cover, SC is protected to IP68 standards meaning that they are fully immersible.
