LCM Introduces Low-Profile Universal Load Cells

LCM Systems has launched the PTC-1 range of low-profile universal load cells. Suitable for a variety of testing applications, including structural and airframe testing, Jack Load monitoring and material and fatigue test machine feedback, this new series has been designed for use where high stability and low height are essential requirements.

The PTC-1 load cells are available with a rated load from 5kN to 1,000kN and offer high natural frequency, low deflection and excellent resistance to side and torsion forces thanks to the shear web internal construction, according to the company. The stainless-steel construction ensures corrosion protection both for the load cells themselves and the optional mounting base, which is necessary if the load cells are to be used in tension.

For use in a range of harsh and rugged environments, the PTC-1 load cells are supplied with an integral Mil-Spec connector and a mating connector. The cells are also sealed to IP66 and can be supplied calibrated. The in-house technical department at LCM Systems can advise and provide a range of load-cell instrumentation for ready-to-go systems.
