The Pancake Load Cell (aka Universal Load Cell) category is built for Endurance, Off-Center Loading, or Inline applications. Pancake Load Cells represent one of the more common designs offered for force measurement applications because their low profile can be installed within limited real estate.
Pancake Load Cells are available in a wide capacity range from 25 lbs to 1,000,000 of pounds, in both Stainless Steel or Anodized Aluminum flexure, utilizing metal foil strain gauge technology. These pancake type load cells provide a compact design, achieving accurate measurements in both tension and compression. Options such are in-line signal conditioned amplifier and/or TEDS / IEEE1451.4 are also available.
