STC Threaded Tension and Compression Load Cell

Made in UK
STC Tension and Compression Load Cell
Click images to enlarge.
The STC series load cell is ideal for measuring both tensile and compressive forces. The standard metric threads at each end of the load cell are designed to accept standard spherical seating rod-end bearing.

There is great flexibility in the STC design, allowing us to offer special sizes, to meet specific application requirements, or different end thread sizes/combinations. There are versions available with male threads at each end, or male threads one end, female the other. We are also happy to supply any of the STC series with imperial thread sizes.

The STC series can be supplied as shown in this datasheet or can be modified to meet a particular application requirement. We are always pleased to discuss any special requirements that can be accommodated. The STC series can be supplied on its own or combined with our extensive range of instrumentation to provide a complete load monitoring system.
