Universal Tension/Compression Load Cell Glossary

Universal & Compression Canister Load Cell Information

Accurately determine load measurement data with universal tension and compression load cells from Coti Global.

A universal tension and compression load cell is a measuring device that can accept load in tension or compression. Tension is measured when the load cell is pulled, instead of compressed, when weight is applied. Applications that can benefit from this load cell type include:

  • Hoppers
  • Bins
  • Truck scales

Coti Global manufactures universal tension and compression load cells utilizing corrosion-resistant stainless steel and high-quality electronic components, which ensure precision measurements and increased longevity. With an Ingress Protection 67 rating, this load cell type is protected against debris and moisture intrusion.

Our universal tension and compression load cells are ideal for single- or multiple-cell applications with loads ranging from 200 to 250,000 pounds. They include the following features:

  • Precision load sensing
  • FM approved
  • Compact
  • Lightweight
  • Hermetically sealed
  • Have an IP67 rating
  • 2.00 or 3.00 mV/V outputs
  • 3-1/2-inch to 17-1/2-inch heights
  • Threaded end installation

When application success and failure depends upon precision measurement, reliable load cells are required. Dedicated to manufacturing high-performing, long-lasting products that meet customer requirements, Coti Global is here for you.
