5550 Stub Axle Load Cell

The 5550 stub axle load cell has full environmental protection and is built for rugged applications. The load cell is constructed from high strength stainless steel.

A complete range covers the load capacities from 10 to 50kN. Each load cell can be designed to allow transverse loading while measuring in the active plain. The load cell is built to the highest commercial standards that include temperature compensation over a wide temperature range.
