Load Cells feature integral overload stops.
February 28, 2013 -
Manufactured in lightweight aluminum alloy, STA-7 Tension/Compression Load Cells come in 6 standard versions with rated loads of 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, and 50 kg. Integral overload stops are supplied on all ranges up to 5 kg, protecting against accidental damage up to 500% of load cell range. Standard metric threads at each end accept universal mating spherical rod-end bearings. Applications include hanging scales, material test machines, motor dynamometers, and general force measurement.

LCM Systems Launches New Aluminium Alloy, Low Range S-Type Tension/ Compression Load Cells
LCM Systems, one of the UK’s leading designers, manufacturers and suppliers of load cells and instrumentation is pleased to announce the launch of a new addition to its STA series of S-Type tension/compression load cells. The STA-7 fills a gap in the market for an easy to use small, highly accurate, low capacity load cell with integral overload stops. Typical applications include hanging scales, material test machines, motor dynamometers and general force measurement.
There are 6 standard versions of the new STA-7 load cell with rated loads of 1, 2 5, 10, 25 and 50kg. A unique feature of these load cells is that integral tension and compression overload stops are supplied as standard on all ranges up to 5kg. This means that the load cells are protected against accidental damage up to 500% of the load cell range.
Each load cell is manufactured in lightweight aluminium alloy, weighs only 300g and is supplied with standard metric threads at each end that are designed to accept universal mating spherical rod-end bearings.
For straightforward application advice, LCM Systems’ experienced in-house design engineers are only a phone call or email away and the STA-7 can be supplied on their own or combined with LCM Systems’ comprehensive range of instrumentation to provide a complete load monitoring system.
