SS2 Series Load Cell

Overview

The SS2 series load cell from Sherborne Sensors has been designed for applications where precision measurement of extremely low forces is required. They are based upon bonded semiconductor strain gauge technology, conferring excellent sensitivity and eliminating the fragility associated with unbonded strain gauge types. The design features excellent immunity to the effects of eccentric loading, side loading, and bending moments. Forces may be applied either in tension or compression and alternative loading adaptors are available. The low deflection and consequent high-frequency response ensure that the unit is suitable for measuring peak and transient forces.
