Product Details


SKU:   LC-5103
Double-Ended Beam Load Cell

5103 transducers are double-ended, center-loaded shear beam load cells. The 5103 is constructed of nickel-plated alloy steel. These products are suitable for tank weighing systems, low cost weighbridges, and axle weighers. A reliable sealing is ensured by the proprietary TRANSEAL potting compound and additional mechanical protection of the strain gage area. A specially designed mounting arrangement is available, providing the ideal solution for vessel / tank weighing
