Pancake Load Cell (Tension Base)

Model LCF455 is a Pancake Load Cell (Tension Base) designed for tension and compression applications. The low profile design offsets most off-axis loads making the “pancake” type a very popular selection. The LCF455 Pancake Load Cell (Tension Base) is comparable to the LCF450 but this model comes with a tension base, making it suitable for Inline applications on Actuators or Threaded Assemblies. The Pancake Load Cell (Tension Base) has a very robust construction available in Anodized Aluminum for lower capacities (500 lb – 2,000 lb) and 17-4 Stainless Steel for higher capacities (300 lbs and 5,000 lbs -10,000 lbs). You will also find options for Metric Threads, Fatigue Rating and Amplified Version readily available.

The Pancake Load Cell (Tension Base) uses metal foil strain gauge technology offering excellent accuracy. It has Nonlinearity of ±0.1% and Deflection of 0.002” to 0.005” nominal. The standard LCF455 Pancake Load Cell (Tension Base) can be modified or customized to meet your requirements and most capacities are in our inventory, making them available for quick delivery. Similar to our entire Load Cell product line this model is manufactured in US.
