300 kip Capacity Load Cells

 
The load cells mentioned below are designed for 300 kip loading capacity. The designation number on each load cell is defined as follows: LC (load cell) - A (aluminum) - # (capacity, kip) - # (consecutive no.) - # (cross section area, in2) - # (inner diameter, in) - # (length, in).
 

Designation Number

Outer Diameter (in)

Excitation Voltage (V)

Resistance for Balance Resistor (kΩ, between...)

Calibration Equation:

Calibration Data (VDC)
Uout= UcalA UcalB
LC-A-300-1-10-3-12 4.723 10.0 - .03339F-.00859 - -0.90
LC-A-300-2-10-3-12 4.723 10.0 - .03339F-.00859 - -0.90
LC-A-300-3-10-3-12 4.723 10.0 - .03339F-.00859 - -0.91
LC-A-300-4-10-2.5-12 4.723 10.0 - .03339F-.00859 - -1.05
LC-A-300-5-10-2.5-12 4.723 10.0 20 (B and D) .03339F-.00859 - -1.05
LC-A-300-6-10-2.5-12 4.723 10.0 30 (B and D) .03339F-.00859 - -1.05
 
Calibration curve: force is directly proportional to the output voltage
