Model 31 precision miniature load cells measure both tension and compression load forces of 50 grams to 10,000 lb. These models are our highest accuracy, rugged miniature load cells. Model 31’s welded, stainless steel construction is designed to eliminate or reduce to a minimum, the effects of off-axis loads. (The internal construction assures excellent long-term stability for ranges 1000 grams and above.) A modification permits this model to be completely welded for underwater applications. The Model 31 tension/compression load cell has male threads attachments. High accuracies of 0.25 % to 0.30 % full scale are achieved. Each bonded strain gage unit is built of welded 17-4 PH stainless steel for additional ruggedness. All load cells with ranges from 1 kg to 10 lb have an electrical balance module in the lead wire (approximately 1 in x .087 in thick). This balance module does not have to be the same temperature as the transducer.
