FUTEK provides a wide range of Canister Load Cells (also known as Column Load Cell) designed for high capacity compression applications. These models offer robust construction with a capacity ranging from 2,000 to 30,000 lbs. FUTEK has also developed a miniature Load Cell Canister series for applications where size is a critical factor.
The Column Load Cell is designed to measure loads in compression. This model is manufactured in US, and similar to our entire Load Cell product line, uses metal foil strain gauge technology. Additional design features include the use of a strain relief providing much greater protection from the pull on the cable.
Load Column Load Cells are also commonly known as Canister Load Cell.
