Load Cell Sensors

Starrett offers a full range of precision load cell sensors for material testing, force analysis and force measurement applications.  Starrett load cells are compliant with IEEE 1451.4 and meet or exceed ASTM E4, BS 1610, ISO 7500-1 and EN 10002- 2.  Measurement accuracies of ±0.05% of reading down to 1/100 of sensor capacity may be achieved.  Sensors are supplied with a NIST-traceable Certificate of Calibration.  Sensors may be used on L3, L2 Plus, L2 and S2 Systems.

ULC and MLC Load Cell Sensors

Starrett ULC and MLC load cell sensors are full-bridge, temperature compensated,strain gauge instruments designed and optimised for material testing applications. These low profile sensors feature high axial stiffness and minimal deflection at full capacity which leads to improved measurement accuracy.

The ULC (Ultra Low Profile) - These models provide ultimate measurement performance and are supplied with a standard base plate adapter.  Available in capacities from 1.5kN to 50kN. 

The MLC (Low Profile) - General purpose sensors available in capacities from 125N to 50kN.

FLC Load Cell Sensors

Three models of s-beam load cell sensors are also available.  These are all full bridge, temperature compensated strain gauge instruments, designed for force measurement applications, but suitable for some material testing applications.

Premium Models Ideal for low load applications, these sensors have a safe overload rating of 1000% of the sensor's load capacity.

Sealed Models These models are suitable for applications in non-laboratory environments where dirt, oil, dust and debris may be present.

Economy Models When price is an issue, these general purpose load cell sensors are economical and suitable for most general purpose force measurement applications.
